I have over 500 hours of experience tutoring math. Why? Because I enjoy doing it and because I am good at it.

What makes me good at tutoring? Knowing math, knowing my students, being good at drawing people out, and being good at adjusting how I teach so that it suits the unique individual I am working with.

To learn, students must feel comfortable, interested, and challenged. When students are too challenged they feel overwhelmed and discouraged. When students are not interested or challenged they get bored. I am expert at finding each person's sweet spot where s/he is comfortable, interested and challenged - where learning feels less like work and more like play.

Learning can be fun, not frustrating!

Wyzant offers discounts, and sometimes I do too. Whether or not I discount my rate depends on several factors, including the math, how busy I am already, when appointments will be and how far I'll need to drive to get to them.

My daughter enjoys math tutoring with Holly for the last year. She now looks forward for Holly to clarify any questions she had about her math lesson or homework.

Holly works so well with my son. She is very patient and my son is improving in his math with every session. I'm so grateful for her help!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 two years of experience helping 3-5th graders with their homework in an after school program. I also taught elementary math to high school students for a year and a half. I often recommend (free!) web sites where students enjoy reviewing and practicing the basic math I teach them.

I am tutoring students taking “Introduction to Logic” at UCSC this quarter. The teacher, catalog number and textbook are Bowin, PHIL9 and “The Logic Book” by Merrie Bergmann.

I did well in the Logic class I took years ago, then used the material in upper division Computer Science classes and when I worked as a Computer Engineer. I know the material well, but frankly I don’t have enough experience tutoring Logic to feel comfortable charging full price for doing so. I can see that I’m helping the Logic students I tutor, and that they are happy with the tutoring I provide, it’s just that I know that I will be even better at tutoring Logic once I have more experience doing so.
