About Gerry

I became a math major because I couldn't imagine school without doing mathematics. I've worked with students who feel exactly the opposite: they can't imagine enjoying school when "doing" mathematics is part of the equation. In my eight years of teaching (Pre-algebra through Precalculus) and 16 years of tutoring (Pre-algebra through Calculus as well as Integrated Math 1-3 as part of the Common Core Curriculum), I've discovered that many students who just didn't "get math," achieved understanding in a one-on-one setting. Freed from distractions and peer influence and given space to ask all of their questions, they start to "get math,"; they grow in confidence; and mathematics becomes a subject they comprehend and appreciate.

I've also worked with students who enjoy "doing" the math but find that one-on-one tutoring enables their surface level understanding of certain concepts to morph into a deeper conceptual level. This deeper understanding reduces frustration (for both students and parents alike), increases confidence, and frequently leads to improved test scores.

If you're a student experiencing either of these realities or a parent of one, let me partner with you to achieve understanding and success in mathematics.

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.

CBEST

I have multiple years of experience teaching and tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. I would love to help you gain confidence in those areas of mathematics in order to pass the CBEST and begin your work in the classroom.

Fantastic Tutor !

My daughter had Gerry as a tutor for Trigonometry/Pre Calculus. She was struggling with understanding the complexities of this subject area, but we found Gerry who made the complex easier to understand. She was very patient, was very thorough in her explanations, and was very encouraging . Each time we left a tutoring session, my daughter felt a sense of relief because she walked away empowered
