I am a credentialed mathematics teacher. I have taught high school and community college subjects in math for thirty years. My bachelor's degree and two years of graduate work are in mathematics and statistics from University of California in Berkeley. I have a master's degree in educational technology from Peperdine University. I, also, have a master's degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from California State University, Northridge. I have been recognized and awarded as an effective and outstanding instructor of Calculus and, in general, mathematics. After graduation, my students keep in touch with me and thank me for the learning experience I provided them.

Throughout my teaching and since my retirement in 2010, I have been tutoring students and have enjoyed it. I like working with people, particularly, young people. I strongly believe that you can learn anything. We are born to learn. My approach in tutoring is to start from where you are. In other words, I first find out what you know and build on that. There is no one way of learning mathematical topics. If a student does not learn from one method of instruction, I try other methods. Passing rates in my Calculus classes have been close to 95%. Sometimes students who come to me for tutoring tell me that they are lost and do not understand the topic, sometimes they understand partially the topic but have difficulty in solving certain problems. Sometimes students need help with reviewing and preparing for a test. I welcome all.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am a credentialed teacher and have taught high school and community college math for 30 years. I am retired now and am tutoring and giving private lessons. I have been awarded for my high success rate. I have taught the full spectrum of math classes, from elementary algebra to calculus. Thank you Suzanne S.
Algebra 2,

Calculus

I am a credentialed secondary math teacher. I have taught higher level math classes for over 25 years.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have taught high school math from pre-algebra and calculus, including geometry, for thirty years with high rate of student success. Understanding Geometry is a prerequisite for future and more advanced math classes from algebra 2 to pre-calculus and calculus.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I am a retired credentialed, secondary math teacher. I have taught math for many years. I believe that math should be taught in two areas, concepts and skills necessary to understand the concepts. These two should be taught together in order for the student to make connection to the topics and understand them easily with common sense.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I am a secondary credentialed math teacher with over 25 years of experience. My students have a high rate of success.
SAT Math

SAT Math

SAT math consists of problem solving (word problems) that require application of pre-calculus math. Students need to learn techniques to rewrite and understand the question. Some students need help in that regard and some need a review of the skills. In both cases, my experience with more than 25 years of teaching the subjects will help.

Very knowledgeable

She is very knowledgeable and patient with my daughter. Also very positive and encouraging. She reviews the current chapter and previous material that was a struggle. She makes sure that my daughter understands by asking her questions and asking her to do math problems.
