About Libby

I am a graduate level, private tutor specializing in mathematics: Algebra 1, Prealgebra, and ALL Elementary Math. I teach all grade levels (Elem - HS). I am a Certified Teacher in Texas and am "highly qualified" to teach Elementary Education PK-6 and Special Education PK-12. I have a Master of Education (MEd) in Special Education and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology and Business from the University of Texas at Austin. I am also VERY tech-friendly and can tutor Word, PowerPoint, and General Computer Skills.

I have privately tutored over 60 hours and have had great success with my students. Please view my reviews here: https://www.wyzant.com/Tutors/CT/Newington/8960740/#Tab-StudentFeedback

I tailor each session to the student's needs. I also create color coded visual supports to reinforce learning and to create a concrete and easy to understand way for students to learn.

I am an accomplished writer and have 2 journal publications in scientific peer-reviewed journals and an entry in The Encyclopedia of Special Education. Therefore, I also provide proofreading services.

I LOVE tutoring and working with students (of all sorts)! My true passion is education and teaching others. Learning doesn't have to be boring.... it should be fun and rewarding! In my sessions you'll work hard, but have FUN learning. School IS cool!

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.

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education. I have experience with mild disabilities such as ADD/ADHD, and am successful working with these students. I am patient and have the ability to work with students that need extra help with organization and tutoring.

I have worked with children with Autism (Asperger's included) for 10+ years. I have a Master of Education in Special Education in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA Therapy). I have been practicing as a Behavior Analyst for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder for the last 4 years.

Great results with Libby! — Libby has been helping my 7th grade son with math. She has focused on the areas he needs help with and helped him master them. She has gone above and beyond by coming prepared with extra practice problems and visual aids where needed. I highly recommend her! ...
