I recently retired from teaching after 30+ years in the classroom. By choice, I spent many years working with struggling students. I hated math until I was a sophomore in high school and finally ran into a teacher who could explain math using real work examples and told me stories that helped me remember the steps to solving problems. I could then see how all these problems were related and how each step led logically to the next. I now see math as a beautiful world that all hangs together and makes sense. Balance and symmetry make it all understandable.
I moved to Alaska ten years ago to be with family and enjoy my grandchildren. My husband and I have three dogs, a bird, a cat and a chinchilla that somehow moved into the garage when I wasn't looking. My quilting room is fully stocked with a fabric stash. My days can be busy, but somehow not quite fulfilling. I miss teaching and working with students. I want to help you succeed in the today's classroom and, more importantly, to grasp a true understanding of math so that you can move ahead confidently.
I have spent the last thirty years working with struggling students. I have taught by choice the entry level math classes in middle school and high school. I worked before and after school with students who missed classes, or had missed concepts. If you want to learn, I will be there to help you.
I am looking forward to helping you. I have a flexible schedule. Please call to schedule an online or in-person session. I recently retired from teaching after 30+ years in the classroom.

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.
