If you, or your child, is insecure about math, or is an under-performing student, an artistic or creative one, a learner with math anxiety, a woman who prefers a female role model, an adult returning to school after a hiatus, or a student who misunderstood important math basics, send me an e-mail. Include the topic, course, or grade level being studied, past history with math, plus any information or concerns that will help me get know you. I return my e-mails promptly.
We work at the student's pace and I explain concepts as often as is needed. Students "learn how to learn," not just how to memorize the steps in a problem to turn in the homework. We look at the big picture, then focus on the concepts involved, one by one. If I discover gaps in prior knowledge, we stop before moving on.
My goal is to help students become independent problem-solvers, so that outside the tutoring session, s/he can perform well in school. In fact, one student told me he hears me reminding him to check his work after each step during a test.
After 20+ years as a math educator and counselor, I have learned a lot of math tricks and tips for keeping cool and focused. ALL of my students' grades and skills improve. Most of my dedicated, long-term students earn A's.
I tutor Math 3-4-5-6-7-8, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus, as well as the math portion of the ACT, SAT, GRE, CBEST and home school students. I tutor math for grades 3 through community college pre-calculus.
My rates are low because I work out of my Emeryville condominium. There is an extra charge to come to your home.
A note to those reluctant to enter credit card information:
Entering your credit card information on WyzAnt is like reserving a hotel room or an automobile. Your card is not charged until after you and I have our first session. After you enter the information, we are free to set up an initial appointment.
