Ontario Certified Teacher with Master's Degree excited to tutor students for **Math**, high school and university

Methodology

The toughest part about math is that a lot of concepts build on previous ones. So if you missed something about the previous material, you may find it difficult to understand the new concepts at times.
When I teach, I help the student determine what they *do* know. And from there I build on that knowledge, bit by bit. I help them discover the solutions and this way my students feel that they actually understand the material. I prefer this instead of just telling my students how to do a question and having them watch me work out a problem.

Background

I have a Master's Degree in Math and I am an Ontario Certified Teacher for Secondary School. I've tutored students one-on-one and I was a Teaching Assistant in University for 1st year math courses.
Currently I tutor students for a living and I absolutely enjoy it! The best part about my job is seeing my students achieve the goals they had set for themselves at the beginning of the term. At the same time I make math fun to learn - the proof? My students' testimonies!!

1) Any sessions cancelled within 12 hours of the start of the session - the student/parent must pay the full fee of the session
2) If the student is late for a session, I will not be able to extend beyond the original finish time. However I will take the fee for the full session
3) If I am late, the student will be able to choose one of the following:
-I will extend the session to make up for the missed time OR
-I will make up the time at the next session OR
-I will prorate the fee so that I only get paid for the time I tutored the student
**I will never take money for time that I did not work**
