I have experience both teaching and tutoring many levels of math, including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. I have teaching licenses in both Indiana and Florida for teaching math K-9 (Algebra I)

I try to make math fun and interesting, tying the concepts to real life. I love the one-on-one aspect of teaching, finding that very quickly I can identify and correct problem areas.

I break down the steps involved in solving mathematical problems, and build upon students' prior knowledge to build success and confidence in students. Very often students are doing the majority of a problem correctly. When errors are identified and fixed, students can be successful.

I look forward to working with new students and parents.

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.
