A Few Tutor Qualifications
Have an A in college algebra.
I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my Naional Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12). I passed the SAT exam for this subject area and I'm very strong in reading, vocabulary and study skills. I look forward to helping you on your SAT score.
In high school among my programming courses was a course called directed studies. In directed studies I was allowed to do my own self directed programming projects. The main language I used in my 3 directed studies classes was C#. I am most comfortable with this language and have created many applications in C#.
25 years experience teaching elementary math as a SPED teacher.
VA "highly qualified" to teach elementary math.
Trained in the "Voyagers" mathematics program.
Experienced one-on-one tutor using manipualtives, games, concepts to excite students to believe that math is fun! (and that they can be successful!)
Programming background includes major projects using Fortran, C, Assembler, Pascal, and most recently JAVA and Perl. Training of support staff in these languages was a good portion of my job.
Written programs from classroom work for compliers, Perl applications for websites and actual code in use in communications Satellites.
I teach Finance and Personal Finance at the university level.
For several years, I served the University of Tampa in their Counseling Office, initially placing incoming students into their first semester of courses to ensure they were headed for success in college and in their major. The job expanded with me checking graduating seniors to ensure they had met the requirements of their major for their degree, and helping them, as needed, with their plans for graduate school, which, for many of them, included getting into medical school.

I have been a runner for over two decades. I have run in marathons, half-marathons, and triathlons, and through this experience I have a keen understanding of training regimens and workouts. I also coached Track & Field and Cross Country at the high school level.
I have been a public school teacher for 16 years. I encourage good study habits and skills that are transferable over a wide range of subjects. I have also been a student for over thirty years and have used various study skills and habits in order to be successful in and out of the classroom.
All those grammar concerns, commas, apostrophes, subject-verb agreement, that pester you, as well as long readings that baffle you, will cease to disturb after I assist you. As in all my instruction, I present you with the materials and skills to overcome those challenges on your own. You come away not only possessing the knowledge to make correct choices quickly and within test time limits, but internalizing the knowledge to apply this learning to other areas (writing, for example) and other subjects, history, civics, even math, where, yes, language counts too.
Twenty years of working with individual test takers and college applicants have helped me hone my own techniques. Teaching English on the college level, including a specialization in Latin American Literature in Translation, hasn't hurt. My own publications appear in the Metropolitan Diary of _The New York Times,_ in many letters to the editor sections, and in poetry journals. I look forward to working with you on the SSAT.
