I taught applied microbiology at a leading university for over 14 years. After a 12-year career as a scientist in Health Services research, I became a Math and Science tutor in an after-school college prep program called Upward Bound for seven years. For the past five years, I have been tutoring math at a technical college. In my math tutoring, I concentrate on the basics of arithmetic and the fundamentals of algebra. I have successfully guided high school and college students through Algebra I, Algebra II (high school), Basic Math, Intro Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra and Trig. I have consistently obtained very high ratings from my 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 tutored Algebra I in a college-prep program called Upward Bound for seven years. I am therefore quite familiar with the contents of that course. I know what the major pitfalls are and can help your son navigate them successfully.

Algebra 2

I tutored Algebra II in a college-prep program called Upward Bound for seven years. I am therefore quite familiar with the contents of that course.

Prealgebra

I spent seven years as the Math and Science tutor in an after school college prep program called Upward Bound. I tutored basic math, Geometry, Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Trig. I also helped students prepare for the Minnesota State standardized math exams as well as the ACT. I know where the stumbling blocks are and how to help students overcome them by focusing on the fundamentals of math.
