“I love math, and have enjoyed teaching it to students who need help. I understand that math can be complicated, and it is not something you get right away. I believe with practice and skill one can be better able to understand it. I know this because I also grew up not liking math but, ironically, ended up teaching it. I believe we need to be patient and understand what the student is good at and where the student struggles in order to effectively teach math to students. Relating math to real life examples can make it more interesting and fun for students.”

### Michael M.

Subjects:

Loves tutoring because:

“I get to interact with so many curious and motivated students on a daily basis. In the outside world, people's eyes tend to glaze over when you try to start a conversation about math, physics, or statistics, but in a tutoring session you can talk about those subjects as much as you want, and the students are interested in what you have to say. It is also inspiring to see the students' courage as they work through their confusion and frustration to find and understand the solutions to the problems. Every once in a while, I get a new problem that I have not seen before, and I get to personally go through the cycle of confusion, frustration, and final victory as I wrack my brain trying to solve the problem. Those are the questions I remember the best.”
