...Different students will respond better to one style of teaching versus another. My job as a tutor is to find out what teaching style or presentation will make my student comprehend the subject at hand better. First, I try to find out what sparks the interest in the student and then try to relate the subject matter that he or she has difficult with to that interesting topic.

...As an education consultant for Chicago Public Schools, I designed curricula for all upper level honors math courses, including AP Calculus, and my syllabus was endorsed by the College Board. I have a perfect score on the AP Calculus BC exam, as do many of my students. I've also taught Multivariable Calculus to college students who've left me excellent reviews.

I've been teaching or tutoring for over twenty years in some form or another. For me the reward from tutoring is when I see that a student has caught onto an idea, when the light bulb goes on. In my career I've not only studied physics, mathematics and statistics, but applied them as well as time management and study skills.

During my time at San Francisco State University I took several courses in Linear Algebra including an upper level class. Since I have been tutoring at the College of Alameda I have had several chances to refresh my understanding of the subject.
