Are you looking for help in Algebra, Geometry, Pre-calculus or Calculus? Let me help you master these subjects.

I am an experienced college level tutor, with experience as a peer tutor at the College of DuPage. While there I helped many students achieve success in their courses. I can help with common areas of trouble from simply understanding and interpreting the information in class homework to addressing specific areas of difficulty such as solving equations, factoring, graphing functions, working with trig identities, finding derivatives of functions and using them for problem solving, integration and its applications, and many other topics.

My approach is to help you identify and learn the information you need to understand your subject and connect it to the knowledge you already have, in a friendly, informal, intuitive way. I am knowledgeable, patient, and sympathetic to your struggles as a student. You deserve success for the hard work you've done, and I can help you achieve it.
