I have recently retired after teaching algebra and geometry for ten years at Greenfield High School. I also taught math and computer subjects at Bryant & Stratton College for five years. Before that my husband and I owned a retail computer store for 18 years. I also worked for a few months for Huntington Learning Center, working with individual students in math subjects. I have two married sons and five grandchildren.

I enjoy working with struggling students and helping to raise their math skill levels and their feelings of self-confidence in their math skills. I try to relate math to real-world activities to demonstrate relevance for the students.

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

Topics I can cover include operations with signed numbers and polynomials, graphing and determining slope of lines and equations of lines, solving equations using from one step to several steps, solving quadratic equations, factoring, translating word problems to algebraic language and solving.

Prealgebra

Before beginning to study algebra, a student should be able to perform all operations with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals, work correctly with percents, calculate ratios and solve proportions, solve one-step equations, calculate simple probabilities, solve application problems using the previously-listed skills, and calculate the perimeter and area of simple geometric figures.
