Your current school math work is the starting point for our discussions.  Your goals become our goals for the session.  We will work problems to help you make progress on homework, review for quizzes and tests, and further explore concepts that are yet unclear to you. 

I have an immense collection of resources that I have created to aid in practicing, learning, and discussing math concepts.  We will use these resources along with your current classroom work to enhance each tutoring session.
