I have over 12 years of experience tutoring middle school and high school mathematics, as well as SAT, PSAT and ACT math prep!

**LOCATED IN THE DOVER/MAGNOLIA, DE AREA**

From 2006-2011, I owned a test prep and math tutoring company in my hometown of Tampa, Florida. There I worked with over 300 students and had amazing success helping my students improve their math grades and test scores. In 2011, I moved to California and for three years I worked with about 40 students in college and high school math courses and test preparation for the PSAT, SAT, ACT and AFOQT (math portion of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test).

I know how to explain mathematics to my students in a very clear way that is easy to understand. I always help my students make study guides or concept flash cards for their tests to help them memorize formulas and concepts better. I am an expert tutor in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry and Trigonometry. As well, I have thorough understanding of how to approach the math sections of the SAT and ACT, and I have taught students how to take these tests for over 12 years! My students often see their scores increase dramatically on their college entrance exams. My students tell me that their confidence and general attitude about math improves after working with me. I absolutely love what I do and would love to work with you!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 over 11 years experience tutoring ACT math. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your ACT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students come to me with a specific ACT score in mind (for a college application) and I am able to help them achieve this goal!

Algebra 1

I absolutely love teaching Algebra I and Algebra II! These are my favorite two courses to teach and I have worked with over 300 students in FL and CA in these courses and have over 11 years of experience teaching these two subjects! I can making learning Algebra fun and my students have told me I am excellent at explaining ways to memorize formulas and definitions necessary for these courses.

Algebra 2

I absolutely love teaching Algebra I and Algebra II! These are my favorite two courses to teach and I have worked with over 300 students in FL and CA in these courses and have over 11 years of experience teaching these two subjects! I can making learning Algebra fun and my students have told me I am excellent at explaining ways to memorize formulas and definitions necessary for these courses.

Elementary Math

I love working with younger children and inspiring them to enjoy mathematics! I have over 11 years tutoring experience with Elementary math. I am a warm and friendly person, and children are comfortable working with me. I can explain things to them in a clear way and can teach to a wide range of learning abilities. If your child is in 1st through 6th grade needing help, please contact me!

Geometry

Geometry can be a tricky class for many people because of all of the formulas, definitions, rules and postulates that must be learned. In this class, I help my students keep all of these rules straight by making flash cards and building a study guide out of the definitions as we move through the class. I also focus on the Geometry concepts that are often on the SAT or ACT so that my students can strongly understand the concepts that they will see again on those tests. I am excellent at explaining graphing and constructions! I have over 11 years of experience tutoring Geometry.

Prealgebra

I have worked with many pre-algebra students and my students always tell me that they enjoy working with me because I make the learning fun and I explain things in a way that is easy to understand. I have over 11 years of tutoring pre-algebra and have worked with middle school and high school students on this subject. I believe that having a strong background in pre-algebra makes a student struggle much less with Algebra, so I really enjoy teaching this course and helping students increase their confidence in math!

Precalculus

I have tutored pre-calculus courses for the past 11 years and consider myself very proficient on this subject. Pre-calculus can be a very hard class for students to learn as there are SO many topics involved. I enjoy showing students how the topics on this course build on each other. I am great at explaining function graphing techniques, LOGS, trigonometry functions, systems of equations, conics (circles, ellipses, parabolas, hyperbolas), and sequences/series problems. Pre-calc can be fun!

PSAT

I have over 11 years experience tutoring PSAT MATH. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your PSAT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students have improved their PSAT (math scores) significantly!! This test is also a great way to prepare yourself for the SAT, taken during Junior or Senior year of high school.

SAT Math

I have over 11 years experience tutoring SAT and PSAT math. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your SAT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students have improved their SAT (math scores) over 60-120 points!!

Trigonometry

I have tutored trigonometry courses for the past 11 years and consider myself very proficient on this subject. Trig can be a very hard class for students to learn as there are SO many topics involved. I am great at explaining trig function graphing techniques, the Unit Circle, trig identities and trig function rules, translations of graphs, vectors, polar functions, and conics (circles, ellipses, parabolas, hyperbolas). Trigonometry can be fun!

You are AMAZING! — I really struggle with math. My first meeting with you left me feeling very confident. You have this amazing ability to break each problem down so that it makes perfect sense.
