I have taught math for 33 years in public schools. I have experience in tutoring children at many levels. I believe that all children can achieve and should be encouraged to do so. In my tutoring sessions a positive environment is created for learning. A good line of communication will be set forth to achieve the student's goals.
Many of my students have successfully passed the HSA for Algebra to satisfy the requirement in Maryland for graduation. I believe being patient,encouraging students to work problems out step by step and providing relevant definitions for topic vocabulary increases achievement. My goal is to help a student develop good math skills to the best of their ability and feel good about it.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught math for 33 years. I taught math for 5 years to children in grades 6-8 and was head of the math department. Also, I was the director of a licensed learning center in MD where I ran the tutoring program for children in K-8.

Praxis

I was a teacher mentor for several years at the high school level. I tutored teachers who requested help to pass the math portion of the test with much success.
