- I am a teacher.
- I am an informal teacher. After 13 years at the Environmental Protection Agency as an engineer, with the birth of my second child, I chose to chart my own course. Since then I have made a living tutoring high school and college math and doing editorial work.Tutoring proved to be my thing. Students told me that with my help they could finally understand math. One student told me she was the most improved student in her class. I loved watching students get the concepts, watching them learn to work the problems, watching their grades improve as their math anxiety ramped down.Just now I am working half-time at a “real job,” at a community college math lab, tutoring students on a walk-in basis — which has become a Zoom-in basis — spending the other half of my working hours working to bring my tutoring business into the new, virtual world in which we find ourselves.Now I hope to offer a service that meets the needs of students schooling online. One-on-one tutoring is not much different from the tutoring we knew before covid, but it’s safer and more convenient. With help from Zoom, we can share documents and communicate as we would face to face.
Does this work for you or for someone you know? I would love to hear from parents of high schoolers about how I can tweak these services to meet your needs.
