Hi, my name is Teri and I love math! Recently I earned my master's degree online in teaching math for grades 5-9 but I'm credentialed to teach k-12 in California. I've taught students of all ages for many years. My goal is to reach each of my students according to their individual learning style, allowing each to have fun with the instruction materials. I live in Marin and have 4 kids of my own aged 15 to 23.

Teri explained things carefully and took the time to understand my daughter's teacher's expectations. She focused and stayed right on point making it less confusing. Good teacher!
Teri has been working 1 on 1 with my son for a few weeks now. His grades have gone from C- to A. She patiently guides him when he needs the help but she lets him lead. I really like her style of teaching which empowers and promotes interest in math. She also will stay past the hour to finish helping with homework if needed.
Teri is a very patient and experienced tutor. She could explain problems for my kid very clearly. She knows how to communicate with her student. My son likes her very much.
Thank you for the feedback.
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 love algebra and all its applications! There are many games to make learning algebra fun! As there is no single magic formula for all students, I find making the lessons individualized the most important factor in success! Knowing algebra is a basic skill that will be tested all through the high school years and beyond.
I have taught the math part to both the SAT and ACT prep courses through Silvan Learning for the past 3 years. I have helped my students raise their scores significantly with this program. Given one of the test prep manuals I can help you raise your scores too. Learning the test strategies and math practice are key in this process.
