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 I - my experience varies from ambitious 6th graders to adults needing refresher for other courses. I also enjoy helping students who "hate math" to make it fun and learn to love it!

Algebra 2

Algebra II - There are lots of processes and formulas and I help my students break these down and find ways to make it easier and memorable.

Calculus

I love to help students understand Calculus better. I won't give you all the answers, but I will help you find them. Discovery is the most important part of the learning process!

Geometry

Geometry is a tricky math subject. Many students who "get math" have trouble with the newer concepts learned in Geometry, reasoning, proofs, formulas, etc. I help my students understand the "why" behind these concepts.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is usually the beginning of where parents stop being able to help their students with "math" -- even if you did well in school, you have probably forgotten the harder concepts. If you don't have the time to re-learn them all, give me a call!

Precalculus

Precalculus (also known as Math Analysis) is the bridge between Algebra II and Calculus. A strong understanding of Algebra II is required to do well in this class, so an individual tutoring plan is very useful to ensure success!

SAT Math

SAT Math is not difficult math - but it is important! Working individually with a student I am able to determine what techniques and concepts they need to understand better and put my students on a fast-track to testing success.

Statistics

Statistics is not your everyday math class. There are formulas and concepts that are different from what you have previously learned, but are foundational for many sciences and social sciences. It's not easy, but I help my students rise to the challenge!

Trigonometry

I love Trig!!! I know that makes me sound crazy, but I think I can help you love it too, because when you understand it better, Trigonometry becomes just a puzzle to solve where all the pieces fit right together.

Wonderful tutor - super patient! — My daughter is struggling with the way her teacher is teaching. Karenleigh shows her other ways to learn the material that sticks for my daughter. She is super patient and positive without talking to my 16 year old like she is 5. This works wonderfully with my daughter and she is able to remember the tricks that Karenleigh shows her. I highly recommend her as a math tutor. ...
