ExperienceI have years of experience teaching math both as a certified NYC Math teacher and as a private math tutor. I hold a Master's degree specifically in the science of teaching math to students in the 7th-12th grades. This means that I not only have mastery of the material, but also of all the ways to tailor instruction to match the learning style(s) of your child. Even a tutor with a PhD in math won't necessarily know how to teach it. In fact, often tutors who have always had a high affinity for math make the worst and most frustrated tutors. Bottom line: I know math, I know the NY curriculum, and I love to teach.
There's nothing wrong with hiring a college or graduate student looking for extra spending money. But as in all cases, you get what you pay for. If you want the best results, hire a professional teacher.
