I've been helping people understand math for a long time, from helping classmates in middle school, through college tutoring jobs, and even as a teacher for 12 years. We'll fill in your blanks - even draw pictures, sing songs, use colored pencils or whatever else it takes for you to understand. From "big picture thinking" to ways to approach the problem, techniques for your situation are provided. Life is TOO short to let a math class stop you from doing what you want to do!

I'm a credentialed teacher - ten years in the southern CA area, more in the Midwest - so I'm familiar with the standards students have to address.

I look forward to working TOGETHER to see your successes!

Algebra 1

I love Algebra, and have a lot of ways to help you understand the basics that your teacher never taught you. I have hands-on manipulatives that really help. Together we can help you understand it and use it in your classes!

As a Kansas and California Credentialed math teacher, I have taught Algebra 2 in high school for PAY - as a full-time teacher and as a tutor.


Former member of a geometry teacher team at my school, created to increase state test scores (we were successful!).
I'd be happy to help you understand proofs, principles, and how to be successful with your class.
