I have spent the last five years tutoring mathematics for the Academic Achievement Center at Bridgewater State University. My tutoring experience includes teaching topics in college algebra, precalculus, trigonometry, calculus I,II & III, statistics and discrete math. Additionally, I have operated my own private tutoring business during the same time period and have taught many students ranging from elementary school through college level in many math topics including high school geometry.

I have a bachelor of science degree in mathematics from BSU and am currently completing a minor in education. I have been accepted into the Professional School of Education at BSU and am preparing for Massachusetts teacher licensure for secondary level education. Also, I am a member of PI MU EPSILON, a Professional Math Society.

My teaching philosophy is simply that every student can learn, achieve and succeed in mathematics if they have the correct, positive attitude and are willing to work hard. I am passionate about teaching mathematics and enjoy seeing students develop excellent study and learning abilities over time. I include a lot of positive reinforcement during my tutoring sessions, reassuring my students that they can learn and succeed. My positive approach allows my students to relax and start focusing on the material to be learned. I have had excellent success in motivating students and creating real results in academic achievement.

I welcome the opportunity to share my mathematical knowledge, effective study skills and positive learning approach with new students.

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

I am familiar with many of the difficulties that challenge algebra I students. The teaching experience that I have in this subject along with a very positive approach to learning has been key to my success in tutoring algebra I students. I welcome the opportunity to help you with your tutoring needs with algebra I.

Prealgebra

Over the years, many of the students that I tutored through my private tutoring business needed help with prealgebra topics.

I have a deep understanding of the different types of learning issues that can arise in middle school math and possess the necessary experience needed to correct them.
