Overcoming the Fear of Math with a Teaching Strategy Designed to Fit You.

Methodology

My teaching methodology differ from student to student. I identify the student(s) weaknesses and strength and work from that angle. For instance, if the student's strength is in Art, Music, Reading etc, I'm able to relate math to the subject and then explain to him/her how another student may be having serious problems with his favorite subject because he or she hates it. The idea is to inject the appreciation and love for math in a very subtle way and once a little interest is created the rest follows effortlessly.

Background

I am first degree Math holder and a current student of Ms Data Science. I've been tutoring Pre- Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Statistics and S.A.T and A.C.T preps since 2008. I've taught and mentored kids from various backgrounds to develop absolute command over math, who have gone further to pursue math and science courses in college. I'm gifted with the skill of developing unique teaching approaches that best fit my students. The results have been overwhelming successes and satisfaction. My students have extremely high confidence, respect and trust in me because I show them utmost respect, patience and accommodation.
Their performances are evidence to the strong and cohesive team work, I create and it's very satisfying to see my students move from fear, dislike or hate of the subject to appreciation, love and command over the subject.

Mr.Sam is a very excellent teacher! He helped me to tackle my weaknesses in algebra as a 8th grader. He is very patient, kind, and understanding while handling your weakness. As a 9th grader, I am now way ahead of my class because of all the lessons he helped me with and also instilled a great knowledge of lessons ahead of my grade level. Because of Mr.Sam, I won the award for overall mathematics award for all of 8th grade. I am most likely the best in math in my 9th grade Algebra 2 honors class. I strongly recommend Mr. Sam as your math tutor because you will benefit from it greatly! Oh and FYI.... He’s also my dad :)
