I have taught elementary school (5th grade, and worked with students from grades 1-6), and middle school math (mostly 6th and 7th grade, with some 8th grade algebra thrown in) for more than 16 years. I like making math understandable, and I use manipulatives and investigations to help students gain a more concrete understanding of topics. My greatest joy is to have the "lightbulb" go on inside a child's head when they finally "get it"! Having worked with middle school students for so long, I feel I have gained a lot of insight into their thinking, and I have become much more patient with them.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for 4 years in public school. I have materials for lessons available for use in home teaching.

CBEST

I passed my CBEST on the first try as a sophomore in college. I have taught for twenty years, four of them as a 5th grade teacher, and the other sixteen as a middle school math teacher. The CBEST goes no higher than Algebra, which I have taught for four years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher for the last 20 years, many of which were spent mostly in upper elementary. I have taught grades 1-8, and am sure that my experience will help me in any grade level, though I prefer grades 4 and above.

Elementary Math

I have taught grades 1-6, focusing on math centers and hands-on lessons. Math is my strength, and I thoroughly enjoy aiding students with understanding concepts.

GED

I have taught both elementary and middle school for the last 20 years. I hold both an English and Mathematics supplementary credentials and have experience in teaching reading, writing, and mathematics up through Algebra 1.

Grammar

I have taught reading and writing in both elementary and middle school. I have a supplementary English teaching credential, and a lot of experience with writing, proofreading, and editing.

Prealgebra

Having been a math teacher in public school for the past 16 years, I have a lot of experience teaching middle-school mathematics.

Pre-algebra is one of my favorite areas of mathematics because skills learned in earlier years are deepened during this time, and there is an exposure to algebra.

I enjoy working one-on-one with students to enlarge their understanding, and have many different methods for helping students learn.
