My personalized tutoring is based on over 20 years of experience as a teacher, school administrator, and 1:1 tutor. I have taught middle school and high school math and science classes, and hold teaching credentials in both Biology and Mathematics. In addition, I have served as a high school administrator and an elementary school principal. I also have many years of tutoring experience.
My education includes a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction (very useful!) and a Bachelor's degree in Biology. My tutoring focus is built on listening to what you are struggling with, recognizing the key issues, and unlocking them with you quickly to build both your knowledge and your confidence.

My math experience ranges from elementary lessons to Calculus, with an emphasis on Pre-Algebra, Algebra and Geometry. I first became a teacher when I remembered how much fun math can be. My goal is to share that joy with you to turn your current pain into the pleasure of understanding.

I have an integrated understanding of the foundational areas of science. I have studied and taught Biology, Earth Science, Physics, Chemistry, and Climate Change. My math experience serves your work on the application of key problems. Information that may seem overwhelming can be organized and communicated clearly to increase your success and lower your stress levels!

Please contact me so we can schedule a session! I look forward to helping you.

Great teacher

My nephew felt extremely comfortable with him. Terry was able to give him tips on how to study. He is very patient and has a great personality. I would highly recommend him

Susie, 3 lessons with Terry

Probability Problems

Terry helped me understand the concepts of probability. He was able to break it down to a level I could visualize and understand. He is very patient and knowledgeable. I will be using him again...

Knowledgeable, insightful & patient

Terry is an amazing tutor and we have worked with several. He tutored my son in Algebra. My son went from failing to receiving an A on two exams.! Terry takes the time to understand how your student thinks and has incredible patience. He helped my other son with Physics. Terry helped my older son to be clear with his communications with his teacher, be more organized and understand what he needs to learn and focus on. This guidance helped bump my son's grade up 2 levels. My sons are very different people and Terry was able to understand their needs, how they think, and teach them what they needed. I highly recommended Terry as a tutor.

Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor

Terry has been helping my son for the past month with high school geometry. He has been wonderful to work with as a parent - easy to communicate and arrange appointment times. My son reports that Terry explains things in a way he can understand. He's encouraging and patient. We would both recommend Terry to other students.

Maureen, 7 lessons with Terry

Patient, thorough, and knowledgeable tutor.

Terry is very adept at explaining the material we are covering. He invests the time needed to offer an excellent tutoring session. I have a challenge communicating in general, but Terry is skilled in presenting the information in a way I can understand.
