About Wendy

I have been teaching and tutoring for over a decade and enjoy working with students of all ages. During college, I tutored elementary school students. Following college, I was a middle school math teacher in Washington, DC. I have an undergraduate degree in business from Wharton at the University of Pennsylvania and a law degree from Georgetown. Between my education and employment over the past 15 years, I have used math and writing all the time. I LOVE teaching math and making it both fun and easy for students to learn and enjoy. I particularly enjoy helping students prepare for the math and English sections of the ACT and SAT. My theory on education is that every student can be successful. I help my students feel both successful and smart. My tutoring methods give students both skills and confidence. Given my educational and professional background, I am comfortable tutoring just about any age (K-12) in a variety of subjects.

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.

Criminal Justice

I have a law degree and did criminal defense work for juveniles for a year. Also, I spent a year doing a federal clerkship where I focused entirely on habeas corpus and prisoner civil rights cases. Also, during law school, I taught a course called "Street Law" where I taught criminal justice.

Elementary (K-6th)

During college, I took some education courses. The courses were service-learning classes where I would learn about pedagogy in a classroom and then apply my learning by teaching and tutoring in the Philadelphia public elementary schools. Also, I tutored elementary school students for all four years of college. Since college, I have gained extensive experience working with K-6 students in after school tutoring programs.

Study Skills

I was a middle school math teacher for a number of years. Because I worked in an urban school, I worked with all of my students, and particularly with my homeroom students, on study skills. Also, I ran an after school tutoring program for students where we focused a great deal on organization and study skills. All of the students with whom I have worked have benefitted greatly from focusing on improving their study skills. In addition, I have developed some good strategies for helping students develop good study skills that serve them well in all of their subject areas.
