Welcome to my tutoring site. I have been tutoring for 44 years. It started by helping my brother's friends through their high school math courses. I do this because I love math. Here is my story. Just recently (2012), I retired from the public school system after having taught for a total of 19 years. I taught for seven years in the archdiocese of Philadelphia at the middle school level. I have a master's degree in educational leadership and a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Due to my years of experience, I have compiled quite a variety of strategies that make math easier for all students to understand. I truly love tutoring because I watch that light bulb "go on" in my students' heads. Please work with me and together we will make amazing progress.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary (K-6) education is a field where I do have extensive experience. I have 2 sons who I raised by myself. They both did very well in school. I had my own special requirements for them regarding homework from Sept. through June. Homework was the highest priority. Then in the summer they had to do a page of math problems each day and also they had to read for 30 minutes. I also tutored several students in grades 2 through 8 during the summers. My nephews had trouble with math in grades 3 through 5 so I tutored them in math and especially the times tables. They struggled with those times tables before I began working with them. From 1986 to 1993, I taught grades 7 and 8. This included teaching math, science, language arts, reading, writing. Regarding study skills and strategies I employ a variety of these. Some strategies are pneumonics, flash cards, music/rap, visuals, hands on manipulatives, and software applications. I have a Bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in education.

Linear Algebra

I have a master's degree in educational leadership and a bachelor's degree in mathematics. I have taught for 19 years, grades 7 through 12. I have tutored grades 4 through college for many of those 19 years. I took modern algebra in college and scored an A.

Praxis

I have a M.A. in Educational Leadership, a B.A. in Mathematics, and Secondary Education Certification. I have already tutored 2 students in Math Praxis. All of them have raised their scores to the passing level or higher on the first try after tutoring with me. I also have taught grades 7 & 8 for a total of 7 years and high school for 12 years. Now I am a retired math teacher. I also have tutored SAT & ACT prep and math PASA prep. My PASA student took the math portion 3 times and failed all 3 times. She began tutoring with me & then took the test again. She raised her score by 44 points and was then eligible to get her elementary teaching certification in Pennsylvania. She would be happy to speak to you regarding the quality of my tutoring work.
