I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12) and have taught for over 10 years and have tutored privately for over 20 years. My original education and training was as a mechanical engineer. I worked in industry for 11 years prior to teaching. I have also owned my own retail and Internet businesses. I have raised two children (both two very different types of students) and have worked with young children as well. I enjoy kids and math a lot! I look to offer a different perspective and maybe even teaching style than what the student has already experienced. And my tutoring is grounded with encouragement and a lot of questioning so that the student will arrive at her/his own answer.

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.

Praxis

I have been tutoring for SAT math tests for over twenty years specializing in test taking tactics. I became a certified math teacher 13 years ago. I only had to take Praxis II because my SAT scores met the bar. I have been teaching math for the last 13 years by day and at night I tutor in math or teach SAT math prep. I have an undergrad degree in Mechanical Engineering and a masters degree in biomedical engineering. I would love to help people who are preparing to take the Praxis.
