I am a mature and caring tutor with experience and great references! I ran my own tutoring company in Maryland for 6 years and have been tutoring in and around San Antonio for 2 years. 2014 was a great year for my SAT students, with score improvements ranging from 200-700 points! I work well with students of all ages and abilities, and I have experience with IEPs and other special needs. I am adept at modifying lessons and my style to adapt to the way individual students learn. My primary areas are elementary math, middle school math, pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, SAT, ASVAB, ISEE, SSAT, phonics, reading (beginners and up), writing, grammar and spelling. I LOVE working with middle school students, especially in math. One of my favorite math areas is fractions; I find that many students have difficulty understanding fractions and how they relate to ratios, proportions, decimals and percents, and I have had great success with students in this area. I understand the frustration that many parents and students feel when things are not going well in school, and I can help you and your child get to the root of the issue, find a way to remedy the situation, and move forward with confidence.

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)

As the director of my own tutoring facility for 6 years, I worked directly with students of all ages and abilities. I worked very closely with the principal and counselor of the local elementary school, both of whom sent students to me on a regular basis. The majority of these students were several years behind in reading and math, and many of them had behavioral issues and/or learning disorders that required IEPs and 504 plans. I was successful in bringing these students up to and ahead of grade level, decreasing their frustration, and helping the school meet their goal of keeping students on track.
