Fantastic article this month from Costco Connection on page 33! In this article, you'll find tips on helping your student with homework, and in the right column - "When to call a tutor." It is a popular misconception that only students who are failing should sign up for tutoring.
Other reasons parents have signed up for tutoring with me include the desire to:
1) improve confidence in math
2) prepare for a career in science or engineering
3) to prepare for a school transfer and math placement exam
4) lessen family stress caused by math homework and grades
I work with a variety of students, and can help students to think through their math problems with logic, control their anxiety levels, and develop an appreciation for mathematics. I assess and give frequent feedback to improve organizational and communication skills, so that my students are able to be the most powerful agents in their own learning!
