I became a math major because I couldn't imagine school without doing mathematics. I've worked with students who feel exactly the opposite: they can't imagine enjoying school when "doing" mathematics is part of the equation. In my eight years of teaching (Pre-algebra through Precalculus) and 13 years of tutoring (Pre-algebra through Calculus), I have discovered that many students who just didn't "get math," achieved understanding in a one-on-one setting. Freed from distractions and peer influence and given space to ask all of their questions, they start to "get math," they grow in confidence, and mathematics (especially Algebra and beyond) becomes something they comprehend and appreciate.

If you're one of those students or a parent of one, let me partner with you to achieve understanding and success in mathematics.

Great math tutor — My daughter desperately needed help with her IB Math SL. She was frustrated and overwhelmed. She hadn't given up but she was pretty close to it. Her teacher got Gerry's name from other students that she was tutoring in Honors Pre Calculus and we started with Gerry in October. She has helped our daughter bring up her scores in all the areas.
