I have taught and tutored high school and middle school math since 1976 and currently teach math at Granite Oaks Middle School. There are four components to my tutoring:

1. Concepts and Skills: help students understand the concepts behind what they are learning and give them practice on the skills they need to become mathematically fluent.

2. Accuracy, Organization, and Efficiency: help students organize their work and become accurate and efficient problem solvers.

3. Study Skills: help students learn effective ways to study for tests and quizzes and help them review material as they go.

4. Errors and Gaps: identify errors students make and gaps they have in their understanding and give them specific practice to learn correct methods and mini-lessons to bridge gaps in knowledge.

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.

CBEST

The CBEST covers essential mathematics skills including estimation, statistics and probability, measurement, computation, basic algebraic manipulation, problem solving, and numerical and graphical relationships.

I am a K-12 Certificated Mathematics Teacher, have taken and passed the CBEST, and have a B.S. in mathematics from U.C. Berkeley. I can teach all of the mathematics needed to pass the CBEST as well as assist you with test taking strategies to help you do well on the test.
