Do you need help in math
? I am here to help! I am an experienced tutor and my favorite subject is Algebra
! I currently tutor students that are home schooled, are from private schools (Gilman, Bryn Mawr, McDonough, St. Paul's, Roland Park, Immaculate, St. Joseph, and more) and are from Baltimore County public schools at all levels, including Gifted and Talented. When I'm not tutoring, I teach Algebra I
and Algebra II
to undergraduate students at the University of Baltimore.
I can explain Algebra in easy to understands terms. I understand the different ways students learn and can use appropriate methods to insure success. I have experience with all ages - elementary, middle school, high school, college, and adults returning to the classroom after a long absence. I love math, but I understand that many of my students do not! I can make math easier, and you may be surprised with some fun along the way.
I am available for either one-time refreshers - if you are preparing for a test, for example - or for weekly sessions that last the year, the semester, or a few weeks. Summer is a great time to get a refresher, or to prepare for the next math class. Let me know how I can help you!
Tutoring times are flexible. You can come to my home in Timonium or we can set up tutoring sessions at the Cockeysville Library. I also offer online tutoring, so please ask if you are interested.
I graduated with honors from Bryn Mawr College and earned my Master's Degree from the University of Baltimore.
You are good at math, perhaps you just don't know it yet.

I know what you mean! No one likes fractions, but we can get rid of them in algebra problems. This technique is called "clearing the fractions." The best way to describe it is my example.
Let's say you have to solve for x:
2/3 x + 1/4 = 3/2
We know we have to get x all...
In these types of problems, you will get two equations: the first equation relates to the dollars and the second equation relates to "how many".
OK, lets call advance tickets = a and door tickets = d. These are our unknowns.
The first equation is about the money. $7a+$9d=$5740...
Dear Students and fellow tutors,
There are so many resources out there to help you succeed in math. In fact, are there too many? If you do an internet search on a math topic (linear equations, for example) are you overwhelmed by the response? How many hours will you waste looking at bad
OK, stop wasting time and go to the library to check out these books by mathematician...
