John D. ...I taught Algebra 2 a number of years at an international school. This is one of my favorite subjects to teach because it tends to be a "make or break" class for students to either love or hate math. I love applying reality to the mere methods of mathematics.

David H. ...However, it is no problem for me to travel to another location if that is better for the student. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy but can offer makeup classes if necessary. Also, I offer a free consultation meeting to help set goals and gain an understanding of the challenges each student is facing.

Roger M. ...When I teach math concepts such as Geometry, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to the language of math so I'll discuss the etymology of unique math terms. Math has a natural connection to history and science and Geometry especially connects well to the arts and architecture.

Christine O. ...I use a multi-sensory approach with emphasis on phonics to take the guesswork out of reading. Methods I use include Lindamood-Bell, Orton Gillingham, and "Brain Gym". Attitudes change quickly from "I can't" to "I CAN!" I have proofread professionally while I was employed by The Academy for Future Science from 2005-2013.

Kristin R. ...I taught trigonometry for seven years, as part of my school's Algebra II and Precalculus classes. Let me help you understand the relationships between angles and sides, degrees and radians, and the unit circle and other graphical representations of trigonometry. Trigonometry is actually quite beautiful when you fit all of the pieces together; I'd be happy to help you see that too.
