I am certified to teach grades K-8, and High School Math, in NJ and PA. I have successfully taught 2nd and 5th grades, 7th grade math, and high school math, with 9 years public school experience. I tutored math and language arts at a nationally recognized tutoring center for 4 years. Since September 2011, I've done math tutoring with Wyzant, for students from 4th grade to 12th grade, as well as SAT Math, ACT Math, and ASVAB Math prep. I have amassed over 500 successful tutoring hours. I very much enjoy working one-on-one with students, or with small groups, tailoring the experience to exactly what they need. I provide student-centered academic support.

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 have a great deal of experience helping students bridge between elementary math and algebra prep into algebra proper, whether the student is in middle or high school. I make sure my students have the prerequisite skills needed, to study and be successful at algebra.

Elementary Math

Many students need support to fully understand and be able to apply the key skills that are learned in elementary math.
Sometimes it is just more practice that is needed, but in any case it is very important that students know math facts, operations, decimals, fractions, ratios, percents, and proportions extremely well. They must also have general "number sense." I bring a lot of experience helping students learn these basics, which are the key building blocks of all future success in math in middle and high school and college. I make sure my students have the prerequisite skills needed.

Geometry

When I work with students who are preparing to study Geometry, or currently studying it, I start by making sure all the prerequisite Algebra skills are well known. Once I can see that those are mastered, I help the student learn the new vocabulary, concepts, and relationships on which Geometry focuses. Then I coach them on beginning to construct proofs.

Prealgebra

Many students need support to bridge between elementary math into algebra prep and then on to algebra proper. Prealgebra is usually taken in middle school and many of my students are of this level, so I bring a lot experience in helping them. I make sure my students have the prerequisite skills needed, to study and be successful at algebra.

SAT Math

Many students need support to bridge between typical high school math and into the challenging realm of the SAT Math test. I bring a lot of experience helping students learn strategies and become knowledgeable about key topics that get tested on the SAT. I make sure my students have the prerequisite skills needed, to take on the challenge of succeeding on this important test.
