About Blaine

Teaching and helping youth has been a passion of mine since I was in high school. I majored in Elementary education immediately following high school and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary education in 2011 from the University of Pittsburgh. I did a portion of my student teaching in New Zealand, where I learned some of the best math strategies in the world.

I am now a certified Elementary math teacher with 4 years of experience in grades 5 and 6. I have received extensive training in some of the multiple skilled common core strategies that students today are seeing in their math classes. Some attributes of mine are bringing high energy and enthusiasm when teaching math. I will take the time necessary and pay attention to detail in order to identify any mistakes a student is making which may cause them to answer a question incorrectly.

Some of the areas I specialize in are: whole numbers (all operations), decimals (all operations), fractions (all operations), geometry (perimeter, area, volume, surface area, circumference), one and two step equations, word problems, multiple step problems, greatest common factor, least common multiple, place value, comparing/ordering numbers, ratios/proportions and converting among fractions, decimals and percents. If I encounter anything unfamiliar I am very diligent when it comes to researching and learning all the strategies.

I hope I can provide a valuable service to your education and help fill any gaps of information that may not have been taught at school. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would be interested in my help!

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.

Elementary Math

I have taught 5th and 6th grade math for the past 4 years. I have thoroughly studied and covered all areas of the 5th and 6th grade math curriculum. Teaching multiple strategies and using engaging methods to teach kids is a key to success!
