I strive to make learning fun and productive. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring math and science, especially elementary and middle school students. I have many hands-on math activities, worksheets and math games to help students learn concepts and then improve their speed. I can provide many hands-on activities to understand physical science concepts, then teach students how to accomplish the accompanying math problems.
I have developed a large math website that is free to users. It has thousands of problems for students to practice hundreds of topics in elementary and middle school math, algebra and into geometry.

I am certified to teach both math and science in 7th - 12th grades. The sciences I have taught include earth science, physical science, chemistry and physics. The math classes I have taught include all middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra and geometry. I have coached for the Science Olympiad, Science Fair and the middle school math competition, MathCounts, and have had several students qualify for state level. I have also had the enjoyment of providing math tutoring and math enrichment at a local elementary school for several years.

I look forward to helping students in expanding their understanding of math and/or science.

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.

ACT Math

I have taught and tutored math, algebra and geometry for over 20 years. I have tutored a student for the math portion of the ACT test. I like to help students pull together their skills to be able to practice for the test in order to have a mindset to be confident and competent when taking standardized tests.

Algebra 1

I am certified to teach math and science in grades 7 through 12 and have several years of teaching experience. I have provided tutoring and have coached for math and science competitions.

Algebra 2

I have taught and tutored physical science, chemistry and physics. The math involved in these sciences covers decimals, percents, exponents, solving equations, radicals, logs, and setting up and working problems that involve polynomials. I enjoy helping students learn and practice these topics in their Algebra 2 class and look forward to helping more students.

Elementary Math

I have volunteered at a local elementary school for 12 years. I have provided tutoring, been a guest speaker and after-school enrichment classes for kindergarten through fifth grade.

GED

I have over 20 years of teaching and tutoring math and science. I also developed a volunteer math tutoring program at an elementary school, then coordinated it and was a tutor for the school for 4 years. I have coached for math and science competitions as well as for computerized trivia contests for several years. I was employed as a tutor by D11, for 4 years, for students who were homebound due to a medical issue or because they were suspended for the remainder of the semester. As a tutor for the homebound I tutored their math, science, English and history. I consider myself very capable to tutor for the GED test.

Study Skills

I have taught math and science for almost 20 years and have helped students 'learn how to learn'. In addition I often tutored after school. I have been a tutor for D11, for students who are homebound. In addition to teaching & tutoring, I have been a volunteer in D11 for over 20 years in areas such as coaching for math & science competitions, tutoring, teaching enrichment classes and more. I enjoy teaching students how to learn and analyze. My decades of experience shows I am capable of tutoring study skills.
