Hi there! I am an experienced teacher who excels in one-on-one tutoring. I have tutored and taught in a traditional classroom for over 5 years, and understand different ways to teach math to students. I have bachelor's degrees in mathematics and sports science, along with a master's degree in finance. I teach courses from middle school math to calculus. Last year 100% of my geometry students passed their end of year SOL. Please let me work with you to improve your understanding!

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.

Basketball

Division II collegiate basketball player who led team to regional finals. I have played basketball since the seventh grade, and led my high school team to our first state appearance in school history (class 5A). Highly skilled in offensive and defensive skills, particularly at the guard positions.
