I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.
I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn math whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!
I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Through a series of writing exercises, reading out loud of written pieces, and discussion, we'll work through finding your unique writer's voice. Topics can range as widely as you'd like, but will also be assigned by me. You can use these techniques for fiction or nonfiction, historical or observational writing. We'll also discuss your audience and the message you're trying to convey.
As an award-winning author and long time writer for music publications and other subject and lifestyle blogs, I'll put you on the right path to find total comfort with your writer's voice.

When I was 9, I won a Mother's Day poem-writing contest. My first thought: "I can't believe no one else entered."
Several decades later, I *still* don't know if that's why I won, but now that I'm the published author of 80+ books for children, I do know this: writing creatively is an adventure.
It's also a must. If you are going to write at all, write with flair! (You would eat a bowl of ice cream as is, but if offered a topping, wouldn't you take it?) It makes the experience more delicious for the reader, but also for YOU, the writer. The entertainer!
This is not your typical writing session. High impact. Low stress. I make it fun and funny. My writing challenges are unlike any you've done. If you're an avid writer, this is for you. If you're a reluctant writer, same! I've worked with all kinds of kids.
Each session will involve lively discussion and mind-blowing tips...you won't want it to end. So let's get started!

Your favorite athletes all work with coaches. A football coach creates plays and helps players adapt to the game on the field.
