...When I teach math concepts such as Precalculus, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. I also find realworld applications for the Precalculus concepts whenever possible, so students see how relevant math is in their lives.

My experience is that many such students have troubles adding and subtracting fractions, and my first task with such students is to make sure that they have mastery of that kind of calculation.

Recently, one of my acquaintances requested me to tutor her 13 year son in Physics. I happily agreed. Couple of months down the line, I realize that not only is it interesting to teach, but it is equally interesting to interact with kids and to see how their unique behavioral patterns are intimately related to their ability to learn.
