If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have been teaching for more than 18 years in mathematics, physical education, and health. My best talent is to make difficult subjects easy to understand and fun by using everyday language and real-world examples. I also have a love for the creative use for technology which allows me to make instructional videos for student remediation. I have benefited from extended time with a large variety of student populations, from AP students to at-risk student populations. I did this to be able to learn how to help all students, not just the high achievers. I firmly believe anyone who is willing to learn can. I always take time to help students learn and not just how to learn math. I will be more than willing to help you learn how to save time and frustration by learning how to correctly take notes and study. This, believe me, is half the battle in making learning fun again. As long as you are willing to learn and make it a priority, I guarantee your success. I hope to hear from you.
