I tutor pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, and geometry. My services are available to students that come from the traditional public school system, private schools, home schools, and community colleges in North County San Diego: San Marcos, Carlsbad, Encinitas, and Vista.

WHAT I DO:

1. Help you master concepts you are learning in your math class.
2. Help you develop excellent critical thinking skills so that you can solve problems independently and accurately.
3. Help you cultivate healthy study habits to continue succeeding in life.

WHAT I DO NOT DO:

1. Complete assignments, quizzes, tests, or projects for students.
2. Homework. Your homework from class must be completed outside of our tutoring sessions.
3. If you are looking to improve in two weeks or cram for a test, then I am not the tutor for you.

I'm a UCLA Bruin at heart and graduated in 2005 with a BA in Economics and a minor in German. After a few years in the corporate world, I stumbled upon tutoring in the fall of 2010. A close friend of mine desperately asked me to tutor her for the intermediate algebra college course she was taking. She had failed the class three times and it was the only class she needed to get her AA degree. How frustrating, right?! After everything was said and done, she passed her class. She was so happy! I was so happy for her!

To have been able to help my friend on such a huge level inspired me to pursue tutoring professionally. I'm so glad I was able to help her and was proud to be at her graduation ceremony.

If it sounds like we would make a great fit, please contact me!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 builds on the concepts studied and practiced in pre-algebra. I can help you understand the concepts, so that you can complete math problems on your own.

Geometry

Geometry can be tricky if you don't start out knowing the basics very well. I'll help you practice and understand all the basics, so you can master more advanced geometry later down the road.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra takes elementary math a step further, as well as prepares you for the concepts in algebra. I will help you review and practice so that you are best prepared to take your math to the next level.
