About Elizabeth

My name is Elizabeth. I have had the pleasure of helping students reach their academic goals in mathematics for the past 25 years. I have taught middle school through college level mathematics in both Broward and Martin County. I am now tutoring in Precalculus, Trigonometry, Statistics, SAT/ACT Prep, Geometry, Algebra and College level courses. I have always loved the study of Mathematics. In the early years I had my own struggles with how to study Mathematics sucessfully. This is why I relate so well to those who are challenged by their Math courses. In a patient and understanding way, I can apply my struggles to the issues that perplex many of us as we study Mathematics. We will work the problems together as I move you toward improving your confidence and competence levels. I am excited that you have selected me, and look forward to a positive and productive relationship.

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.

She doesn't only explain how to do something, but carefully, patiently works through the problems with the student.
