Mathematics and Political Science student offering my 4 years of expertise to all students in Los Angeles

Methodology

The way I teach is through the method of applying real life experiences and scenarios to the concepts in the subjects of mathematics, political science, and history. I usually provide lessons to all students of every level of education, my spectrum of students is very broad. My approach as a tutor is to figure out what a student likes and dislikes about a subject. From there, I try to use aspects of their life that they enjoy and apply that to their disliking of a subject.

Background

For the past four years I have been providing lessons and tutoring individuals at the college, middle school and elementary level. At all levels of education I continue to help a few students every semester but the overall number is around 30 students so far. With my expertise many of the students I have tutored garnered good grades and applied the many methods I taught them to their homework and tests.
