Bridgewater State College (Mathematics)
I am a certified math teacher, but more importantly have been tutoring students since 1987. I am eager to work with struggling students and give them the basic building blocks upon which to master the material. For many students the difficulty is understanding the language of math along with the bigger picture of how this particular material fits in with his/her life.
For example many students do not realize that while one text may discuss (for algebra) "input" and "output"; other texts use the terms "domain" and "range." As a result, when a student moves from one to the other, their confusion is understandable. Many students and parents often do not understand how Algebra I studies linear relations while Algebra II studies the curves. Geometry develops logical thought and is an important class for all students planning to attend college.
Many of my students return to me when faced with a new teacher or topic. I wish to aid your student in his or her success of mathematics.

Clare is great! She is very patient and has good advice for the student and parent. She is flexible to our needs. If we need to have Algebra covered or Physics covered, she is able to help. She helps my son find his weak points and listens to what he wants to cover. We can also bring test results or homework to focus on. She is very well-educated and my son says she is easy to work with. His grades have improved from Ds to Bs in one semester. I highly recommend her to my friends and parents looking for help.
So far my daughter has been going to Clare for 3 sessions. She just "aced" another quiz. My daughter is extremely happy with Clare, the confidence she has now is a huge relief. If your Major in college is very math intensive I highly recommend Clare; just don't take my time slot because I know I will be using Clare throughout my daughter's college years!
She is a very experienced tutor. She shows great patience with my daughter who struggles with Geometry. We are definitely seeing the difference on her exams.
Clare has been absolutely amazing through my online math course. It is an accelerated 5 week course and she has helped me tackle it week by week. I never thought that the last two weeks would be somewhat sad knowing I wont have our tutor time any longer! If anyone has an online class or any math difficulties, this is the only math tutor I have ever found in my many years in college that has made me feel confident, smart, comfortable, and actually grasp what I am learning. She is amazing and I recommend her to everyone, I look forward to the next two weeks with Clare and conquering this class!
Our daughter was struggling with Honors Geometry "Proofs" and Clare was able to break them down and explain concepts. She's great!
After one Algebra 2 lesson with Clare, my daughter was much more confident. After 2 sessions, she is now routinely getting "A"s and "B"s on her quizzes. Clare is a great resource - very patient with great communication skills.
Clare did a wonderful job tutoring my daughter in math. She showed up prepared, quickly assessed my daughters strengths/weaknesses, and got right to work!
Easy to talk to and was flexible with our crazy schedule, appreciated her sense of humor too. :)
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.
I have most recently taught Geometry using Jacob's Geometry, but have also taught with an online program. It is a really fun class to teach and pretty easy to learn when instructed one on one.
Preparing for the SAT is a smart move for any student planning on taking this college entrance exam. The Math portion of the test is a key element to student selection by colleges. The scores of these tests open you to many scholarship opportunities. The preparation seminar will point out to your student his/her strengths and weaknesses and when to utilize certain strategies to improve his/her scores.
