MAKING MATH FUN!!! Based in Petaluma, CA this Math tutor LOVES the job.

Methodology

I am an experienced Math teacher/tutor who LOVES interacting with the students. My main focus is on middle school and high school learning but I also enjoy the younger students. I truly believe that MATH CAN BE FUN!

My belief is to make the Math concepts relevant to each student's interests and experiences (sports?, art?, history?, literature?, science?, travel?) Whatever the choice is, Math is relevant!


Experience

I have a Masters in Mathematics. I worked as a telecommunications engineer for nearly 15 years but missed the human interaction. I went into teaching. I have since 2005 taught high school classes, community college classes and (perhaps my favorite) done one-on-one tutoring where I can get to know and appreciate each student and their wants/likes/needs.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £22/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £22
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £18

Details

For elementary level I charge $30/hr. For Algebra/Geometry I charge $35/hr. For Pre Calculus and above I charge $40/hr.

Imbedded in those prices is my travelling to their homes. Webcam tutoring would be less.

==========================================================
I have, since the issuance of this resume, continued with various tutoring jobs via Thumbtack, Wyzant and plain old word of mouth.

I am also recently employed part-time at Mathnasium in San Anselmo, CA where we cover any age but typically K-12.
