My name is Gretchen and I am a seasoned tutor of students of all ages. I began tutoring math when I was 12 to high school seniors and have expanded my clientele to people of all ages (from 8-50) in subjects such as Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus A-D, English, Literature (Shakespeare included), History, and High School Sciences. I also provide SAT, LSAT, GMAT and BAR exam test prep.

I received my B.A. from Yale University (double major in Economics and Japanese Studies) at 20 years old and a law degree (J.D.) from U.C. Berkeley, Boalt Hall at 23. I currently run my entertainment law practice from home and home school my daughter.
The one that made the difference. — My daughter has struggled through all of her math classes. Some she just barely passed, others she just didn't understand the material or the concepts. After 3 lessons with Gretchen, the transformation has been unbelievable and quick. My daughter actually "gets" it and so wishes we had found her sooner. If you need someone to make a difference in your child's math grade, stop looking. You've foun ...
