I recently graduated from graduate school at Concordia University with my Master of Arts in Teaching - Secondary Math Education.

I also graduated from De Paul University with a Bachelor's in elementary teaching with a math specialty. I am a licensed teacher and love helping students understand concepts and am empathetic towards their learning.

I believe every student can learn and succeed. I think tutors should explain things in simple ways and work until the student fully understands a concept before moving on.

I have acquired more than 900 hours of tutoring experience over the past 6 years. Throughout that time I have tutored algebra, geometry, trigonometry, ACT, PSAT, HSPT and SAT prep.

When tutoring for test prep, I use an individualized approach. I teach content as well as test taking strategies. I utilize practice tests to give the student a real feel of what the official test will be like, as well as for use as practice passages to gain confidence.

If you have any questions or concerns, just let me know!

I have effectively tutored a few students in the COOP/HSPT test for admittance into high school. I use prep books to teach content as well as test taking strategies for the COOP/HSPT.


I have tutored test prep for over 4 years. I have helped students with the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). The following sections are on the ISEE: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, mathematics achievement, and an essay. There is a lower level (for grades 5-6) a middle level (for grades 7-8) and an upper level (for grades 9-12). I can help prepare for all sections.

I have tutored test taking strategies and test prep for a few years. I use an individualized approach and am deeply interested in helping students improve their scores.
