I have been working with students to improve their math skills for the last 5 years in many different settings. I have worked with elementary students to help bolster their basics, middle school students to build their algebra skills, and high school students to understand the fine points of geometry. I use my love of math to find the best approach for each student.

That being said, I try to make math fun. Math is a challenging subject for many people out there! Even Einstein was a poor mathematician. My approach to teaching math includes hands-on lessons, strategies, math games and problem solving. I try to bring a little fun to a stressful subject.

I have my degree in math and I am currently pursuing a Master's in education.

When solving a system of equations in 2 varibles by substitution, solve one of the equations for x or y and then sustitute that value into the other equation. In your example: x + y = 2(y - x) and y = 3x - 1 The second equation is already solved for y. We can now substitute 3x - 1 for y in...

Very Pleased — My son was struggling with geometry and as a result began to shut down. We recently contacted Tracey to help him with his challenges. As soon as the first session, he came away more positive and confident. Tracey was quickly able to identify concepts that need to be focused on. We highly recommend Tracey as she is very knowledgeable in the subject matter, patient and flexible. We look forward to ...
