Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have tutored in various math subjects for 20 years now. I believe that anyone can learn this stuff; they just need to be taught correctly. I am also a former graduate teacher assistant for several undergraduate courses, where I led problem-solving sessions and interacted one-on-one with students of various learning styles. I specialize in “breaking down” concepts to make problem solving as simple and straight-to-the-point as possible.
