Having me as a tutor is like having a fun, laid back, nerdy, baby-boomer Grandma who loves kids and happens to be really good at math, except Grandma might not charge by the hour or give discounts for multiple sessions per week, but I do!

I develop close working relationships with my students and keep tutoring them for years!

I am currently tutoring K-6, Algebra I & II, Trigonometry, & PreCalculus. Home-schoolers are very welcome.

The principal of my local elementary school, where I'm the volunteer math specialist, will vouch for my character, and I have some other great local references too.
