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 13 years of tutoring (Pre-algebra through Calculus), I have 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 (especially Algebra and beyond) becomes something they comprehend and appreciate.
If you're one of those students or a parent of one, let me partner with you to achieve understanding and success in mathematics.

Tutoring sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice (except due to emergency) are charged 1/2 hour of tutoring time. Hourly rate for sessions located outside of travel radius is $55/hour.
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 to tackle the assignment with confidence. Gerry really boosted my daughter's confidence (and knowledge) so she could tackle the difficult math problems. As a result of having Gerry as a tutor, my daughter raised her grade to an "A" this semester ! There would have been no chance of this success without Gerry's help. You will not be disappointed in the expertise of Gerry, her patience in working with your child, nor her great communication with you as a parent. I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience and would HIGHLY recommend Gerry is your student is struggling in Trig/Pre Calc. I only wish we would have found WyzAnt and Gerry sooner !!!
Love, love, love Gerry! Excellent tutor, very versatile in terms of teaching techniques, organized, personable, and works with complicated schedules. I struggled with math all throughout my childhood and was very concerned academically once I got to college and began taking math courses. She was the missing link to my success in algebra and was able to fill in the gaps where my professor wasn't able to. Highly recommend her to parents looking to acquire a valuable resource for their child(ren) to ensure their academic success and to college students looking to finally gain comprehension in various mathematical concepts.
My daughter desperately needed help with her IB Math SL. She was frustrated and overwhelmed. She hadn't given up but she was pretty close to it. Her teacher got Gerry's name from other students that she was tutoring in Honors Pre Calculus and we started with Gerry in October.
She has helped our daughter bring up her scores in all the areas. We will definitely be using her again for the second half of IB SL.
Our daughter never complains that she has sessions scheduled and even asks for more because she has a better understanding of the subject from working one on one with Gerry. She is even working with our daughter over the winter break.
I would recommend Gerry to any student that is having trouble with math, even at the advanced levels.
Gerry is an excellent tutor. She demonstrates patience while teaching and is very knowledgeable about the course work being studied.
Gerry has been the perfect tutor for pre-calculus and trigonometry. She always sends reminders and reviews. She has been understandable and helps with all questions.
Gerry is an excellent tutor. She worked with my son in AP calculus, and has helped him achieve A's on his last two tests. She is on time, always well prepared, and utilizes the time very efficiently. She has in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and teaches it in a way my son understands. I highly recommend her.
For anyone looking for a focused and patient tutor to help your child in algebra, Gerry A. is absolutely someone that I would highly recommend. She spent the last 2 semesters with out 8th grader, helping her build confidence in her math skills and bring her grade up from a "C" to an "A" and most importantly prepare her for the challenges ahead in high school math.She was always right on time, always flexible to whatever we felt was needed to tweak in her focus and my daughter became comfortable with her very quickly. Phenomenal Tutor!
Gerry has been tutoring my 11 year old son for about a month now and I am very impressed and grateful for her work! She communicates thoroughly, is flexible, and is always on time. More importantly, she has a wealth of knowledge and expertise and is able to work with my son in a patient manner. She asks good questions and helps him to articulate his thinking. I highly recommend her.
We appreciate all of the feedback that you have provided for our son after his lesson. We also appreciate that you ask for a list of topics that he is currently working on so that you are prepared for our next tutoring session. You are always very fast in responding to our emails. We are so happy that we found you and would recommend you to anyone looking for help with math. Thank you so much!!
Gerry has been a great help to my daughter!!! Taking advanced math levels is tough and having another way to explain did help her in better understanding! Would recommend Gerry to all!!!
We have been sending our 15 year old son to Gerry now for the last couple of weeks to go over areas in Geometry that he is/was not grasping in the school classroom. Gerry is able to explain and go over the fundamentals so that our son understands them. Would highly recommend her.
My son has been tutored by Gerry since March of 2013. I am absolutely impressed with the work she's done with him! My son was failing Geometry and within 6 weeks, his grade went up to a 78%!! Also we started weekly tutoring sessions with her this Fall for Algebra 2 and my son is doing great! He is able to begin the school year with an understanding of the skills he's required to master. I owe his success to his tutoring sessions with Gerry!
Gerry was a wonderful tutor, I have struggled with math since I was a child and in order for me to move on to Sac State I was required to pass Business Calculus. Gerry was prompt, professional and very patient. Each week we would go over homework assignments and she would explain to me how to do each step no matter how long it took. She was very nice and personable while also getting down to business, we would often meet at the library and she always arrived on time. Prior to this class I have never had a tutor and I would say Gerry is a gem, she helped me pass the one class that I was extremely anxious about. We went over problems again and again and she helped guide me to the correct answers. I can't say enough great things about her and I would recommend her to anyone with math anxiety!
It was difficult to find a tutor for AP Calculus, but we found a winner for our daughter in Gerry. Our biggest problem was not calling her sooner. Having a tutor is for some reason an embarrassment for young kids these days as they think and wish they knew it all! It takes time and lots of practice, but Gerry was patient and knowledgeable in every aspect and even spent extra time helping and/or following up to make sure everything was going well. I highly recommend her for Calculus assistance. She was very solid. Thanks.
Gerry has done an amazing job helping my son excel in calculus. When my son first started with Gerry, he not doing well in the class and was ready to give up. In a short amount of time, Gerry was able to help my son catch up on what he was behind on and he is now grasping the new material on his own. He earned a B on his most recent test, is consistently getting As on his homework assignments, and is well on his way to a passing grade for the semester. I anticipate him earning As and Bs next semester because of what Gerry has done to help him comprehend the material. Can't say enough good things about Gerry! I highly recommend her.
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.
