Tutoring has been my passion and drive for more than 12 years now. I love seeing the faces of my students when they 'get' a difficult concept or math problem. I have had amazing success in tutoring children up through college in Math, Algebra I and II, geometry, statistics, chemistry, physics, and French.

I was a pre-vet major and took many math courses including Engineering Calculus 2 and science such as Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. I am Phi Beta Kappa and have three full BAs and have been inducted into the French Honor Society. I am fluent in French and lived in Paris working as a bilingual secretary for a large corporate firm.

Most of my tutoring has been in math where I approach it as a way to help students succeed in the world. Many of my students have gone from D's and F's to A's and B's. It may take a while, as confidence is often the key factor. My approach consists of detailed comprehension and lots of praise even in the slightest gain in understanding. Praise definitely works. If you are looking for professional help with your student or yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me through this website. Blessings!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is foundational to a student's life and ability to succeed in any area in today's modern world. With lots of tutoring success stories over the years, I see that the challenge of doing well in Algebra 1 is crucial to their self esteem and desire to take any more math. Let me help your student succeed and enjoy math, contact me today. :-)

Algebra 2

This year I have had a lot of algebra 2 honors students. One of them came to me with a 28 grade point average. She now has a 90+ grade point average. As I share a few insights, they can often grasp and succeed in areas of algebra 2 that prior were not understood. Success is often a state of mind and I approach tutoring with the idea that the student feel like they are succeeding in even the smallest areas of improvement. This often carries over to making their dreams of not only passing but increasing their grades by many letters come true.

Art History

While attending FSU in Tallahassee I had the great priviledge of living abroad in Florence, Italy. During the six months there, I was able to study art history from the birthplace of the Renaissance. After that I also studied art history in Paris, London and New York City. I obtained my BFA from the University of South Florida and entered their Master's program in painting/printmaking.
I also have a degree in Cultural Anthropology that gave me the opportunity to study aboriginal art and cave art. The study of art history is the study of the voice of a culture, how that culture views itself and its existence. If you need help with this field of study, I would welcome the opportunity to help.

ASVAB

The ASVAB is a very important test for anyone's future career in the military. If you need help, let me know today and we can set up a tutoring schedule that will help you achieve your dreams!

Bible Studies

The call of God has been on my life since a child. I have pursued that call and became ordained through Liberty Fellowship of Churches in 1999. My husband and I have been in fulltime ministry for 20 years. Currently I am completing a book on prayer and intercession. If you would like to brush up on your knowledge of the Bible or pursue and in-depth study, I would love to help you pursue your dream. Contact me through Wyzant and we can be like the Bereans (Acts 17:11) and search the Scriptures daily.

Chemistry

Chemistry gets to the very foundation of what this world is made up of. This is the approach that I use that inspires students to be more interested in and thus improve their grades. They often find a drive to succeed in chemistry.

French

French is such a beautiful language and one that can be acquired with patience and diligence. Having a BA in French, being a member in the French Honor Society and having lived in France all help me be a tutor that can help you learn French with confidence.

Geometry

Geometry is often misunderstood by students because of the concepts that are being taught, that differ from algebra. With some help, I have seen many start to enjoy geometry and see the importance of doing well in this important subject.

Painting

Since pre-teen years I have drawn and painted and won awards. The love of painting and art grew and I pursued it at Florida State University to receive it as a minor. I travelled and lived in Paris,France, Florence, Italy and New York City learning of the great Masters and viewing and studying original artwork. The love of painting grew so much that I pursued and obtained a BFA at the University of South Florida and entered their Masters program. I won best of show in painting at their Fine Arts Student show and received a years scholarship to continue studying art.
Acrylic, Oil and watercolor are my favorite painting media. Along with Mono prints and multi media graphics. Would love to share the love of painting with you. Painting can enrich your world.

Physics

As my Physics teacher explained, Physics is about understanding how and why things move and react as they do. I tutor from the standpoint that Physics is basic to life and fascinating!

SAT Math

I scored 100% on the SAT Math certification test. I have been tutoring students for the SAT for years and have found a few ways to help students gain confidence and skills to increase their scores. May I help your student achieve his/her dreams by excelling on the SAT test? Contact me today!

Summer is a time for students to get grounded in the basics of their challenging subjects. It is especially helpful for their self-esteem to grasp concepts that have eluded them in class with the help of a one on one tutoring session.
