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.

ACT Math

I have been a part of many districts' efforts to raise ACT scores. As a result I have access to plenty of resources to help raise your ACT score too. I have been a teacher and tutor for ten years. I have the ability to help you gain basic skills and confidence needed to be successful on this test.

Algebra 1

I have taught a variety of Algebra classes at the high school and middle school level. I have also been a collegiate level Algebra tutor. I anticipate and sort out common misconceptions students might have with the material in this class. I have the ability to relate the content to real world situations giving students an incentive and ability to learn it.

Algebra 2

I have been in the teaching field long enough to see the changes that have happened to the algebra 2 curriculum. When I started teaching students were not required to pass algebra 2 in order to graduate. I have seen how various district have dealt with this new graduation requirement, and am capable of helping you beat this challenge too. I can help you pass algebra 2 as well as actually understand it or even prepare for your lessons ahead of time. My ten years of experience can work to your benefit.

Elementary Math

In order for students to be successful in upper level math, they have to have a good foundation. I can help your students develop their basic math facts. I help them discover facts and patterns instead of having them memorize so they are more invested in their learning. I have been a teacher for ten years and understand how to break down different tasks for individual student needs.

Finite Math

I have taught finite mathematics at the high school level. I have worked on district wide curriculum teams to develop consistent assignments and tests across the all math topics. I know what will be expected of you as far as the content of finite math is concerned, and how to best prepare you for college. I am able to find different ways to explain the content to you that will help you become more confident with the material. I have ten years of teaching and tutoring experience that can be put to work for you.

Geometry

I have a good grasp of the misunderstandings students come across in Geometry. I have taught all different levels of Geometry for ten years. I am able to predict what material is going to give them trouble and supplement their regular class work with extra examples and real world applications.

Prealgebra

I have taught and tutored pre algebra. It is a foundational class for success in high school math. I have plenty of extra materials to help you find success in this course. Your pre algebra student can rest assured they will be getting the one on one attention the need and deserve to gain knowledge and self confidence in this course and to move on to higher level math.

Precalculus

I understand the unique challenges that a pre calculus student faces. This course is often times seen as a bridge from algebra 2 to calculus. Students often times have a hard time making connections between topics or being able to see the applications of their work. I have been a teacher and tutor for ten years. I have many ways for meetings these challenges head on.

PSAT

I have ten years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have a wide variety of resources available for preparing for the PSAT. I can help diagnose what areas a student most needs help with and build up those skills. If needed, we can always just practice a little of everything!

SAT Math

I have multiple resources available to use for SAT math test prep. I have acquired these by being a teacher and tutor for ten years. I have helped many students improve their SAT score over these ten years. I am also well versed with the changes that are being implemented to the 2016 SAT test.

Trigonometry

I have taught Trigonometry in a project based setting and at public high school. I have many ways to bring to topic to light for you. I am able to make connections between the content in order to help you better understand it. I have tutored and taught this content for ten years.
