I am a certified teacher in the state of Illinois with ten years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have a BS in Mathematics, MA in Mathematics Education, and an Illinois Certification for teaching math 6-12. The math classes I have taught include Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus. I have taught efficient problem solving strategies giving students a leg up on math competitions. I have also helped students improve their scores on the SAT, ACT, GED, and the GRE.

I believe every student can learn to be successful. With simple, clear, and straightforward explanations, students will understand concepts, experience success, and gain more self-confidence.

I am a math specialist with more than 1000 hours of tutoring experience, tutoring students of all grade and ability levels.
