A little kindness goes a long way. When a 9th grade Wisconsin Army National Guard student was struggling with Algebra, he was able to log on to Tutor.com for US Military Families, connect with Rebeca M. and get the help he needed from a “super kind and helpful” tutor.

What is your favorite subject to tutor?
My favorite subject to tutor is Algebra, but I enjoy helping students with any math subject.
What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject was Geometry. I really enjoyed learning how to apply all the theorems and postulates to a problem to find the solution. It’s like finding the answer to a puzzle with every problem! I also enjoyed writing proofs because it makes you think through the theorems in such a logical order.
What is your favorite homework tip?
If you find yourself stuck on a math problem, step away for a short time. When we are really involved with a problem, it can be easy to overlook some important information or miss a mistake that we’ve made. After a short break, you can often come back and see the problem in a new light.
What is your favorite thing about tutoring?
In many problems in math, there are different approaches to get the same answer. I love helping students find the way that works best for them when solving a math problem and hearing them say, “It finally makes sense this way!”
