...When I am tutoring, I enjoy getting to know the student and understanding the way the student learns. From my experience, I have found many creative ways of explaining common problems. I love getting to the point when the student finally understands the concept and tells me that they want to finish the problem on their own.

...I was a teaching assistant in an introductory engineering class. I have also done a course in cadet teaching in which I taught math to 5th graders. I believe there is more than one way to explain math concepts so that if a student doesn't grasp the way it is presented in class, I can find an alternate way of explaining it.

...As a civil engineer, I have taken various levels of Physics in college. I have helped HS students improve their grades in Physics, but more important, understand how Physics principles work in real-world situations. Formulas and graph interpretation become familiar and easy to understand in terms of deriving them.

...The idea of a conceptual and non-algebraic proof is somewhere I see a lot of students go wrong. When working with geometry definitions, theorems and postulates play a much larger role than in algebra. When tutoring pre-algebra I try and focus on the different skills needed to excel in algebra.
