Tutor in Long Beach, California

MATH COACH The students that I tutor get help with their homework, extra practice for upcoming exams and personalized instruction. Beginning with the first session I focus on content applicable to their existing math class. After assessing their work I can help fill learning gaps and develop a foundation for understanding math. Merely teaching math skills and processes is not enough. Assuring that students can demonstrate a mastery of mathematical concepts is critical for success. ABOUT ME I am an energetic and innovative teaching professional with the ability to bring lessons to life and cultivate eager and active learners. I teach the fundamentals, enhance student academic skills and prepare them for state assessments based on the Common Core Standards. Success begins with identifying individual learning styles and providing differentiated instruction. Building on prior knowledge ensures that each student grasps the new material in a meaningful manner while feeling a sense of accomplishment. Individualized instruction is an ideal strategy to assist struggling students achieve goals and reach their potential. EDUCATION 1987 B.S.
