I am a certified Math teacher with a degree in Mathematics and a degree in Political Science. I've tutored for the SAT, GED and High School proficiency tests; as well as "homework help". I've taught various math subjects including Basic Math, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry and Trigonometry.
I'm a former Peace Corps Volunteer spending 2+ years in St. Vincent (West Indies) and 2+ years in Fiji (South Pacific) teaching Math and Art. I've also taught several years here in New Jersey and currently teach at a teen rehabilitation facility.
I've found 90 minute lessons to be most beneficial and give 90 minute lessons at $40.
Instead of rehashing the same "methods" previously taught, I will try to find new and intuitive ways to explore problems, ideas and relationships ... leading to HOW to think about solving the problem at hand. WE will "solve" problems more by understanding them, instead of just "doing the math" to get an answer.
