I have always enjoyed learning and teaching mathematics, and feel particularly effective as a tutor.

I have a B.S. in Meteorology, a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, and have tutored for the Penn State Mathematics Department as well as privately for over ten years. I have worked in several fields where I have had opportunities to apply mathematics, and appreciate it for it's application as well as for the discipline itself. My experience includes 8 years of teaching SAT prep for the State College Area School District, as well as teaching geometry online for a large cyberschool in PA.

I am certified to teach secondary mathematics in both Pennsylvania and Arizona.

I take pride and satisfaction in being able to get students to understand the mathematics they need to do well.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

My undergraduate degree shows taking and passing Differential Equations, as well as application in modeling weather. Substantial coursework in analysis and applied calculus during certification and pursuit of M.ED degree (Penn State 07) indicate familiarity with subject that allow me to help students working on differential equations. I was once employed by the PSU math department as a grader of math 251 (Differential Equations as commonly taken by science and math majors).

Praxis

I received ETS recognition of excellence in the Mathematics Subject area test. Over 40 credits beyond Calculus as well as Pennsylvania certification suggest I can tutor Praxis mathematics effectively.
