When tutoring individuals or small groups I tailor my tutoring to the specific needs, interests and learning styles of the students while always inducing the student to confirm and display his/her understanding and mastery of the subject matter.
When teaching a class, I do the same with added emphasis in understanding the "why" and "uses" as well as the "how" of math topics -- with bits of history, puzzles, games and activities to inject some fun into the learning process.
I am a PhD mathematician who has taught and tutored thousands of student in all subjects in math, quantitative analysis, and fields where math is applied. Virtually all students whom I have tutored have improved their grades (usually to an A) and/or projects or doctoral dissertations successfully. I take deliberate approach the ensures understanding and being able to apply ideas and methods not only to homework and exam problem solving, but to real-world applications in business, physical and social sciences, and professions such as nursing, computer science, law, et al. Moreover, I am good at fostering enjoyment and appreciation of mathematics.
