Math Tutor (Elem - College)

I have a very strong math background through my Electrical Engineering major in college. I taught math students of various levels for approximately 15 years. My work experience ranges from teaching close to one-on-one up to 35 students in a classroom in private and public school setting. I love to teach students with different learning abilities and I tailor my teaching style to facilitate a successful learning environment. I feel that individualized teaching is the most effective and pro... [more]
