In addition to my own education, I have taught Algebra both at the college and high school level, as well as tutored many students from a variety of backgrounds over the years.

My preferred method of tutoring involves allowing the student to ask questions and then helping them with their confusion first, then ushering in additional concepts to supplement their understanding. In this way the sessions are efficient as well as helpful in [more]
