When I retired from the United States Air Force I swore I would never get up early again. But I still wanted to do something to continue making the world a better place. So I turned to something I had done for my friends in High School, my troops in the field, and my neighborhood kids, TUTORING! I have been doing it professionally now for over ten years. I love it when my student's understand a new concept. Their eyes light up, they smile at me and say, "but that's easy!"
Most students who come to me have been having trouble for a long time, but managed to get by. My first goal is to help them with their current difficulties and homework. But then I take them back to the beginning, find out what they missed learning, and correct that. Math is like building a brick wall, each layer relies on a solid foundation. If you didn't learn fractions or the multiplication table, you're never going to get through Algebra. But by filling in the knowledge gaps, then each new concept is just a small, logical step...and Math becomes not just easy, but fun. And upon request, I can give the names of many of my students who have said just that! When I retired from the United States Air Force I swore I would never get up early again.

Nadine has helped my daughter feel confident about math! She is a great teacher and always available when we need her.
It is very hard to write a review about Nadine because it is hard to describe how much more she is than just a tutor or a teacher.
First of all, Nadine is easy to reach by phone. Scheduling a tutoring session last minute has never been a problem. It is almost as if she knew the student's grade will depend on it.
You can tell right away that Nadine has had a lot of experience teaching individuals who have a difficult time grasping math. For my boyfriend, he found math to be intimidating and he did not have any confidence in himself. He had problems completing problems during tests because he just drew a blank. Nadine has the patience to help the student build the blocks of understanding and develop the ability to solve more complex problems. She can recognize gaps of understanding, and she fills those gaps like the way workers repair a strip of road that is heavily used during commute hours.
Without Nadine's help, I think my boyfriend would still be struggling with math. She helped remove whatever fear he had about taking tests and restored his faith in himself. Nadine is a wonderful, caring human being who knows what is at stake. Intermediate Algebra was the one class that kept my boyfriend from graduating. The semester is not yet over, but he is in very good shape because of his sessions with Nadine. He has a much more positive outlook on everything beyond passing a math class.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this woman!!! Nadine is a wonderful tutor- I am an adult student who must pass College Algebra to graduate from my university and she has been so patient with me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Math and love it-
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.
I have a BS degree in Math from Michigan State U, a Master's in Computer Systems from Ais Force Institute of Technology, and completed PhD coursework in Geophysics at U.C. Berkeley. I have tutored two students so far in Basic Calculus including differential equations and Integration. My basic method was to make sure they understood what differentiation and integration were and how they worked before moving on to using all the shortcuts.
I have a BS degree in Math from Michigan State U, a Master's in Computer Systems from Air Force Institute of Technology, and completed PhD coursework in Geophysics at U.C. Berkeley. I have tutored (as an estimate) over a hundred students so far in elementary and advanced algebra. My basic method was to make sure they understood what slopes and intercepts were and how they worked before moving on to show how different forms of the basic Y = mX + b linear equations, (including the point slope, and two point method) were evolved.

Although I haven't taught any students in Logic, my years as a computer programmer for the US Air Force made me amply familiar with the vagaries of logic (and how easy it was to get it wrong). At one point, I programmed database selection logic using an easy for the user to understand method I invented myself, rather than using the common Polish select notation. At other times, I helped users build email sieves to select all the incoming mail that they needed to see, while screening out the rest.
