"I teach math" is much more common than "I give math classes".  "I teach" gives the impression that the classes are ongoing, continuous, such as what you would find in a school, university, etc.  "I give classes" implies that the classes are very limited in number.  Maybe you teach once, twice, or three times.  This is what we would expect of a tutor, someone helping students with specific problems or areas of math.  I cannot imagine a high school teacher saying "I give math classes."  It sounds odd.

 

Does that make sense?
