I am a High School Math Teacher with over 18 years of experience. I can teach and tutor all areas of High School Math, but most importantly, I can teach your child how to take tests to get the highest score possible. My teaching style is best described as interactive. Your student will be working with me to see where the problems are in their mathematics areas. We will then focus on filling or overcoming those parts that are not quite up to par.

I have developed math courses for students that are challenged academically as well as worked with gifted students. I consider it my job to be able to help them look at problems and concepts in a way that will help them to remember the material and how to apply it. My philosophy is to help the student to be able to link their learning to what they already know. It is important for the student to be able to be able to use what they are learning in the long time future, not just for a test the next day.

My own background in teaching is unique. I have been a certified teacher for over 18 years. Prior to that I worked in sales, as a teamster, and as a carpenter. I even owned and managed my own martial arts school for over 10 years. With my diverse background I can find ways to help your student be able to master the math class that they are currently in.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Algebra I or College algebra (for college students) is the cornerstone of their mathematics career for their school. I specialize in working with algebra students and, with their cooperation with assignments and their textbook, can help them to excel in this subject.

Algebra 2

Algebra II used to be called College Algebra. In this course the student will take the basic skills that they learned in Algebra I and refine them. They will also bring in their geometry knowledge from the previous year as they start to work with Trigonometry. I have taught these subjects and can help your child master Algebra II.

Geometry

Geometry is a study in shapes, but more importantly in relationships. To truly do well in this subject it takes special care to work on definitions as well as maintaining and sharpening the skills that were learned in Algebra. To do this you need someone like myself who has taught both subjects.

Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra is the one class that can make or break a student's math experience. This is the class where all the basics are explored to determine how someone will do with the rest of their education experience. If I had to choose the one topic where an experienced tutor would be needed, it would definitely be pre-algebra.

Study Skills

As a certified High School Math teacher for over 18 years, most of my time is spent teaching study skills. I also spent a great deal of time with my students making sure that all of them understand how to prepare for tests of all kinds.
