## Caught up and on track!

Cathy, 21 lessons with MaryMy son was struggling and behind in class, with Mary's help he got caught up on his homework and his understanding of the topics already covered in class. Now she helps keep him on track with homework and even work ahead a bit so my son feels confident in class when new skills are presented.

I am a retired mathematics teacher from Denver Public Schools. During my tenure as teacher, I taught Algebra 1, Geometry (both regular and honors), Algebra 2 (both regular and honors) and Pre-Calculus. My students scored well above the district mean in district wide tests. Additionally, my students who took the TCAP tests scored well above the 50th percentile.

When I lived in a suburb of Chicago, I began my teaching career as a full-time tutor at a high school. Looking back that was...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I am a retired mathematics teacher. I taught Algebra 1 for 17 years at the high school level both in Colorado and Illinois.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I have taught both honors level and regular level mathematics. In teaching Algebra 2, I have tried to emphasized modeling real-world data and the functions that allow us to model this data (linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric) in order to make sense of the techniques that we use to solve them. Additionally, I emphasize the use of the TI-84 plus in order to facilitate the complex work that is necessary.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I have taught both honors and regular level Geometry. In teaching geometry, I have both utilized the use of discovery as well as abstract mathematical proofs to help students understand Geometry.
As a tutor, I have tutored many students in two column proofs as well as in angle chases using the conjectures (theorems) available to them.
It is indeed my favorite subject because I believe that the logical thinking that students acquire in Geometry will support them in their work in future mathematics courses.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

I am a retired high school mathematics teacher. I have taught for over 17 years in both Illinois and Colorado. In Illinois, I taught 3 years of pre-algebra to 9th grade students.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

Precalculus is an exciting subject because it makes sense of previous mathematics courses and looks forward to calculus which has so many applications.
It is a difficult course because many of the topics seem unrelated to each other. I believe that sense can be made of the myriad of topics covered by viewing the topics as a body of work that models real-world situations and that the techniques you learn are to help you solve the real-world situations. By giving the topics purpose, you can get a better understanding of why we do what we do.
Hopefully, this approach will help students in their study of precalculus.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

I am a retired Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus teacher. One of the requirements is to prepare students for the SAT. I have been successful in preparing students though instruction in mathematics and additionally with a focus on the types of questions asked on the SAT. I focus on test taking strategies and on possible distracters that cause students to choose the incorrect answers. Additionally, I direct students to focus on exactly what is being asked and whether there is an easy solution to the problem. I utilize both the Princeton Review test reviews and the Kaplan Test Reviews to prepare the students.

## Top notch geometry tutor

Mary tackled a wide variety of problems with my son, and really looked at what he needed to improve on as an individual. She reviewed dozens of his practice problems and tailored the approach to drill down into his weak spots. Mary also came up with extra practice problems. She went above and beyond and we are so happy to have found her!
