About Clare

I am a certified math teacher, but more importantly have been tutoring students since 1987. I am eager to work with struggling students and give them the basic building blocks upon which to master the material. For many students the difficulty is understanding the language of math along with the bigger picture of how this particular material fits in with his/her life.

For example many students do not realize that while one text may discuss (for algebra) "input" and "output"; other texts use the terms "domain" and "range." As a result, when a student moves from one to the other, their confusion is understandable. Many students and parents often do not understand how Algebra I studies linear relations while Algebra II studies the curves. Geometry develops logical thought and is an important class for all students planning to attend college.

Many of my students return to me when faced with a new teacher or topic. I wish to aid your student in his or her success of mathematics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Algebra 1 is the stepping stone for higher math and is incredibly important in the future success of your student's high school success.

Geometry

I have most recently taught Geometry using Jacob's Geometry, but have also taught with an online program. It is a really fun class to teach and pretty easy to learn when instructed one on one.

SAT Math

Preparing for the SAT is a smart move for any student planning on taking this college entrance exam. The Math portion of the test is a key element to student selection by colleges. The scores of these tests open you to many scholarship opportunities. The preparation seminar will point out to your student his/her strengths and weaknesses and when to utilize certain strategies to improve his/her scores.
