My approach is to listen so I can learn how a student thinks. I take a detailed approach to teaching math in ways the student understands. I use a lot of examples and show multiple ways to solve problems. My goal is always to help students understand mathematics without feeling stressed.
I am a college-level mathematics professor and also a professional tutor. I love mathematics and helping others to understand it. I have a deep understanding of math, and have great empathy for those who need help understanding it. I am patient with students and appreciate everyone's unique way of learning.
