High school diploma, Diploma in Business Administration, Bachelors degree in Business Administration and Accounting. All education ended in being at the top of my class. I have even home schooled my own children. I provide tutoring a wide variety of students, from primary all the way to college level classes; all you need is a willingness to learn. My techniques are determined by the course, time, and student. For example, small children might learn better with games while an older student might find learning through games to be silly. My method also changes a bit as I get to know the student and what they need. Some students require more thorough hand-holding, while others just need gentle guidance and knowledge they are grasping the concepts, such as showing an example and then letting them take the reigns. Most students generally learn well with the most general method used of showing example with explanation, doing some practice together, and then asking them to do some on their own. If this does not work well enough, then evaluation of where the struggle is occurring and searching for a better method for student to understand is provided.
I have home schooled my son who is nearly graduated from high school and an A/B student. I taught my daughter numbers, letters, alphabet, animals and their sounds, shapes, colors, and number of other things before she was even 2. I still continue to teach her at 4 years with beginning to add and subtract and trying to learn to read among other things she is continually curious about. She can count to 30 now without help and not just with saying them, but actual counting of objects accurately. I have actually tutored since I was in high school myself many years ago with fellow students, but I became more professionally invested while I was obtaining my bachelors degree in Business Administration and Accounting seven years ago. One of my possible career options I wanted to pursue was being a math teacher since I was little and tutoring was one way to pursue it while also pursuing other career interests.
It began by a student talking about struggling in their math course and I volunteered to help them. They pulled their F up to a B before the class was over. Unfortunately, it was impossible by then to pull fully to an A, but she was ecstatic and sang my praises, telling anyone she could that saw might need help too. I did not charge anything at the time as I was just looking to help, but I had a family and it took up a lot of my time while I was in school myself. My clients insisted on paying me something and pressed me to start charging for my time in appreciation for the assistance they received.
As long as I have been hired at or near the beginning of a course, no client has received less than an A. If hired too late to get an A, I believe they at least got a B, but most clients I have gotten to help before they had gotten too far into course. I have helped with a wide variety of courses, including basic math, Algebra (my favorite), Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Statistics, Accounting(basic and advanced), College math, Labs that include math, and finance classes as far as mathematical subjects go. I haven't kept count of how many students I have taught, but it has been at least a couple dozen, with more than one class with most of them.
While standard rates have been given, they may rise or decrease a little depending on type of class and needs of the student and if more extensive travelling is required. However, use of email, word documents, sharing sites, and/or phone can also make lessons available online if student has reliable internet access and knowledge of these things or able to learn using them so that no travelling is required by either party. In person is easiest way to learn, but not always the most convenient.
