I have more than 25 years of experience teaching and tutoring math from Pre-Algebra through Geometry and Algebra II. I have taught math in grades 5-11 to students of all abilities in independent and public schools from Massachusetts to Delaware, including my most recent positions at Milford High and Delaware Military Academy. I take great pride in helping students realize that they can be successful at math, as my strength lies in my ability to explain both the "how" and "why" of math on terms that students can understand. I have had terrific success with SAT Prep tutoring both in a classroom setting and in one-on-one situations; with some students raising their math scores as much as 100 points.

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.

SAT Math

I have taught SAT prep classes to small groups at Milford High School, St. Thomas More Academy, and Delaware Military Academy over the course of the past 7 years. Additionally, I have tutored individual students privately. In all cases, parents and students have been happy with the improvements that they have seen, and one student was able to raise her score from 610 to 710 after only 4 1-hour sessions.

I focus on both skills review and test-taking strategies. I require that students do additional practice outside of the instructional sessions, as practice is the single most important key to improvement. There is no substitute for becoming familiar with the format of the questions in concert with the review of skills and strategy development.
