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.

Getting the fundamentals underfoot and building on them each step of the way is vital. Finding out where you are and how best to help you move forward in the best possible way with the material is my goal. What is your best learning style? How can we use that in looking at the material and making it a part of you? I want to see you master the material, maybe even surprising me!

I've tutored in many settings: when I was in high school, helping fellow students; in college, again helping fellow students; graduate work - as a teaching assistant; outside work time helping students (both high school & college) in math and other areas of need. My accounting experience has also provided for the opportunity to help others in different branches of our company - on-the-job training / tutoring via phone or email when needed! My greatest joy is when a fellow student, colleague or student outpaces me and goes beyond his or her wildest dreams because he or she has caught the "bigger" picture.

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

All three of my sons have taken Algebra 1 (and Algebra II) and have done quite well. I have been able to help them and have tutored other students in the past before WyzAnt and helped them succeed as well.

Business

In working with accounting and operations on a daily basis, I see many problems and can help others process the same kind of material depending on their coursework needs. I have a minor in International Business & am currently employed by a large US corporation that works with many overseas operations.

Russian

Having lived in Russia for 5 years and spoken it while there and then while living in Kyrgyzstan 5 years as well & speaking it there as the main trade language, I can give you the basics in learning to read, write and speak Russian. Learning the Cyrillic alphabet is not as hard as it seems and once that is conquered, then it's learning the differences in the grammar. It's a wonderful language and there are many speakers here in the US as well as opportunities to speak it overseas.
