About Bee

I'm an educator with 10 years of experience and a great deal of patience and caring. It is my joy and my life's calling to help students overcome obstacles and build new positive relationships with subjects they've disliked in the past. I have a Masters' in education, and incorporate methods from the Making Math Real institute and Lindamood Bell.

I specialize in remediation for students with learning disabilities, helping them catch up to their peers and build confidence. I've taught kindergarten through precalculus, and can also help with test prep such as SSAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE. Additionally, I've helped students in foreign language and English classes, including early readers.

I offer a 15 minute free consultation so we can get to know each other and see if the fit is good. i'm free evenings and weekends, and can meet at a library, students house, or online as needed.

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.
