I have a Masters in Mathematics and am a former instructor at Sonoma State University.

I like to keep things simple. Instead of presenting the student with a parade of ideas, I help the student to see each new topic as simply a new expression of ideas they already know. At the end, the student sees all of algebra as essentially an expression of these first few ideas. I find this approach makes learning much much easier, much much faster, much easier to retain.

Test Preparation:
SAT Math

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Prealgebra

Although I taught at university level, it has been my pleasure to continue to work with younger children, helping them with their mathematics and study skills, throughout my life. I've found that most problems older students have with more advanced mathematics can be traced back to an insufficient grounding in the most basic ideas. I enjoy helping students make sense out of what too often has become mysterious and mechanical.
