How is my child going to learn Trigonometry? It is nothing like the math I learned as a kid.
The best way to learn Trigonometry and for me to teach Trigonometry is by using real world examples. Research shows that students are more likely to understand and remember how to solve a problem if it is related to a real world scenario. The goal is to get the student to keep these mathematical processes in their long term, rather than short term memory. This is possible by linking the concept to something concrete, rather than just memorizing.
How will you help my child become successful in Geometry?
I can stream my laptop page and create written demonstrations without actually having to be in the same room. In Geometry, it definitely helps to draw the shapes while explaining. I also will create problems that assess and directly tend to the student's areas in which he/she needs to improve.
What resources do you have to ensure that my child is learning the material?
As a teacher, I know how to access to the curriculum online and I am knowledgable about different resources that can be used for students to practice the material they are struggling with. I can provide individualized practice that hones in on specific concepts. I am fluent in math and will have done all the work/math out prior to our tutoring session to ensure that time is not wasted with me having to "check" if the student's answer is correct. I also can provide resources for the student to use/work on outside of our tutoring session which can lead to achievement as well.
