If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I am a retired medical doctor, having practiced family medicine for about three decades. Since retiring I have tutored small groups of junior high and high school students in the Puyallup AVID program. I have also tutored several students one on one in their homes. I have been able to build strong rapport with most students and thus help them quickly improve their understanding of the subjects with which they are struggling.

I have a strong math and science background but also have a good understanding of English and history subjects. If I am informed about the subject to be worked on prior to the tutoring session I am willing, if necessary, to review the material before the actual tutoring session. I look forward to assisting you in your efforts to master your school subjects and feel pride in your accomplishments.

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 been tutoring junior and senior high students for the last four years, both in their schools and at home. I am knowledgeable in several math subjects, including algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry. I enjoy tutoring and have several very satisfied clients. References available. Please see my resume and contact me if interested.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am interested in teaching elementary school students the basics of math, science, and reading. I have experience tutoring students in this age group since I mentored an elementary student for two years and raised a son who went on to do well in college. I have tutored junior high and high school students in these subjects in the Puyallup AVID program. I am presently tutoring an 8th grade student in math and a 10th grade student in geometry. I feel confident I can be effective in tutoring students at all elementary school levels.

Organic Chemistry

I studied and excelled in several semesters of organic chemistry while a university student.

I am NOT very good at math, but he was able to explain and break the problems down so that I could better understand them. Haven was even able to show me some helpful problem-solving techniques not in the textbook or discussed in class. He even moved plans of his around to accommodate my work schedule, which I very much appreciated. Overall, I highly recommend Haven f ...
