Montana State University (Master's)
I have loved math and science all my life. I earned a BA in Physics from Grinnell College, a Master's degree in Physics from Colorado State University and a Master's degree in Science Education from Montana State University. I have been teaching math and science for the past 30 years, in the classroom and as a tutor. I have experience teaching and tutoring physical science, chemistry and physics at all levels: elementary, middle, high school and college. I have taught and tutored math for middle school, high school and college. I think that learning should be FUN and do my best to connect new content to prior knowledge and, when possible, personal interests.
Weekly sessions are great, but sometimes questions come up in between. I will be available via email between sessions and am happy to communicate with your teachers to help personalize your instruction. Most of all, I want to be part of the team of people helping you to reach your goals!
I am passionate about science and math. I have enough classroom experience that I am comfortable varying my teaching techniques until we find the one best suited for your needs. I love answering questions and am happy to explain a single concept a million different ways if that is what you need!
I look forward to hearing more about you, your challenges and your goals. I can't wait to be part of your team! I have loved math and science all my life.

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.
I currently teach a math review course for an online university. It includes integers, fractions, percents and linear equations. I have also 13 years of classroom experience teaching Algebra 1 for a private school in Denver.
I am a classroom teacher who has homeschooled my own children, so I understand the needs of a homeschool family. Having taught all age groups in the classroom, I am well versed with math and science curricula from KG through high school. I specialize in Math and the Physical Sciences.
In addition to an advanced degree in Physics, I spent 13 years teaching physical science in the classroom. I love problem solving and writing lab reports!
I have earned two degrees in Physics, a Bachelor of Science and a Master's. I know the content very well and have the classroom teaching experience to be able to communicate it well to students.
