Lesson Details

Elementary Math

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
I'm knowledgeable and patient. I believe it is important to build on the student's confidence as well as their skills, because panic hurts performance almost as bad as being unprepared. 

I have a Masters and a degree in Economics from Southern Illinois University. My undergrad minor was Mathematics. I am a professional economist with a heavy background in math and statistics. I've been active in this discipline for over 30 years in a wide variety of industries. I was also in the Air Force. 

I have good rapport with young children, and tutor from Kindergarten to adult. It would be helpful to know what textbook your child is using so I could work from the same text (which I would either purchase or rent online).
