I enjoy working with students and take great pride in the grade and test score improvement they have shown under my teaching and tutoring. With 17 years of math teaching experience, I have taught most math courses from grade 6 through grade 12. The courses I have taught include Math 6, 7, and 8, Pre Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Probability and Statistics, Functions, Integrated Algebra, SAT and ACT Prep, and a few computer courses. I am certified through 2016 to teach K-12 Mathematics in Virginia. I was a basketball, baseball and softball coach and enjoy mixing in sports examples into my tutoring.

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.

ACT Math

While teaching at Hargrave Military Academy I was quite successful at getting the Post Graduate Athletes qualified for division I sports by helping them boost up their Math ACT and SAT scores. I have a large data base of ACT and SAT sample question along with the knowledge of special techniques to use when taking either an ACT or SAT tests.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra to the middle school and high school student for over 10 years. I am very familiar with the SOL requirements and can concentrate on filling in knowledge gaps or if it is getting crunch time, the necessities for passing the SOL test. I enjoy working with the student especially in a one on one situation.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra II to the high school students for over 5 years. I am very familiar with the SOL requirements and can concentrate on filling in Algebra I knowledge gaps or if it is getting crunch time, the necessities for passing the SOL test. I also have a good collection of ACT and SAT algebra II questions so that we can incorporate that into the tutoring.

Geometry

I have taught Geometry to the middle school and high school student for over 7 years. I am very familiar with the SOL requirements. Geometry is significantly different that the Algebra that the student has experienced previously. I have been quite successful in getting the student at ease with the theorems and postulates and getting them to make sense of the more visual Geometry.

Prealgebra

I have taught Pre-Algebra to middle school students for over 10 years. During that time I have experienced a wide range of different learning styles and comprehension levels. I have been very successful elevating students' math aptitude. Also I am all too familiar with the SOL requirements and can help your child overcome some of the pitfalls. I enjoy working with the students especially in a one-on-one situation.

Precalculus

I have taught Precalculus (Functions) to high school student for about 2 years. I have a good working knowledge of the subject.

Probability

I taught Probability and Statistics to the Hargrave Military Post Graduate students for one year. I have a good working knowledge of the subject and can help the student grasp the Probability and Statistics concepts.

SAT Math

While teaching at Hargrave Military Academy I was quite successful at getting the Post Graduate Athletes qualified for division I sports by helping them boost up their Math ACT and SAT scores. The math classes I taught all were geared to getting good scores on the SAT and ACT. Most of the test and quiz questions I gave were similar to ACT and Sat questions. So now I have a large database of ACT and SAT sample questions along with the knowledge of special techniques to use when taking either an ACT or SAT tests.

SOL

I have 15 years' experience teaching math in Virginia's middle and high schools. Twelve of those years I shrived to get my students able to pass these SOL tests. I have spent countless hours reviewing previous SOL tests, making questions that simulate SOL questions, and getting other states, with similar requirements, end of the year test questions. I have a good data base of SOL type questions and the knowledge of where the common downfalls occur.

Trigonometry

I have taught Trigonometry as part of Geometry and Algebra II for about 5 years. I am very familiar with the subject and can help the student gain further command of this subject.
