I love to learn and I love teaching. That is why I recently retired fromba forty-three year teaching career. Most of my career was in Florida teaching high school students with the last eleven years in Georgia working with students with learning differences.
I have been trained by Emory University in teaching math to students with math difficulties. These one-on-one techniques have increase my effectiveness as a tutor. Students from fourth grade math to algebra have been able to realize their potential and have seen their grades improve.
I tutor students from fourth grade math to algebra. My tutoring goal is to teach students to understand why they arrive at an answer, not just how to do the problem.
I have taken the 40-hour Microsoft Excel training. Since then, I have used Excel extensively as a classroom tool constructing self-grading worksheets. I have written many Excel VBA (visual basic for applications) programs from simple inventory organizers to grade book databases.
Tutoring hours are from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. My base rate is $50. Tutoring is also available in my home. Please contact me for more information.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you excel in your studies. I love to learn and I love teaching. That is why I recently retired fromba forty-three year teaching career.

Thank you so much for helping my 10 year old daughter understand fractions. I was surprised to see that she was able to figure out the last problem by herself. My daughter enjoyed the time she spent learning fractions, he made it fun! She was very happy. Excellent job!
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.
During the past 10 years, I have been teaching basic math skills to students who learn differently from mainstream students. I have training from Emory University in their MILE program, teaching math concepts to students with FAS. I use much of what I learned to help teach all of my students from Math 3 to Algebra 2.
Prealgebra is a very exciting course to teach. It begins the student on their journey into the real world of math and word problems. I have been teaching this course for the past 8 years. I have participated in workshops at Kennesaw State University improving my knowledge and skills in teaching algebra.
