About Malgorzata

I have a B.A. in Mathematics (5-12) and this will be my tenth year teaching at the high school level. I have experience teaching and tutoring basic math (K-8), Pre-algebra, Arithmetic, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Advanced Algebra, Honors Algebra, Geometry, Business Math, Pre-calculus, Trigonometry, and ACT. I have also taught IMP 2 (Geometry) - Interactive Mathematics Program - which emphasizes project-based learning. I have experience teaching not only through a book, but also through projects and hands-on activities. Besides my math background, I have a few year experience tutoring ESL, beginners' Spanish, Polish, English, U.S. History, grammar, computers, science, music, and art.

I fluently use internet and major computer programs like Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Publisher. I have some experience with PhotoShop as well.

Got problems? Not anymore... Just contact me.

I can provide you with great tutoring services (in English and Polish).

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.

Algebra 2

I am a certified high school math teacher with experience working with students from K-12. I am a teacher for the last 8 years at the high school level and have been tutoring students from different grade levels for about 12 years now.

Elementary (K-6th)

Even though I am certified math teacher (5-12), I enjoy different subjects and students of any age. Prior my B.A. in Math, I spent about 5 years privately tutoring students from k-12. I have experience teaching them math, English (especially ESL - I myself was an ESL student), U.S. History, Language Arts, science, Spanish (especially grades k-5), music, P.E. and art. I am really gifted in many subjects, but since I had to decide about my major, I chose to obtain a B.A. in math. Besides teaching in high school, I continue working with some of the students from elementary. I enjoy working with them - they help me to grow as a true educator. I like to teach my "little ones"!!!

Elementary Math

I am a certified high school math teacher with experience working with students from K-12. I am a teacher for the last 8 years. I have been tutoring students from different grade levels for about 12 years now.

Geometry

I am certified with many years of experience teaching geometry and other math classes.

Microsoft Outlook

I was first introduced to Microsoft Outlook about 2 years ago. I really enjoy it. It made my life much simpler. Now, I use Microsoft Outlook every day to send and receive e-mails, plan different events, organize my weekly schedule, etc. One of the best features for me is the ability to see e-mails and calendar in the same window! I also like the e-mails with the alarm - reminders of some important meetings and appointments. The alarm is great as long as do not misuse the snooze button... :)

I think that Outlook has many wonderful features and I wish to let others know about them.

Polish

Polish is my native language... I was born in Poland and I attended elementary school and high school there. I finished my college degree in the USA. I speak, read, and write fluently in both English and Polish.

SAT Math

I am a high school math teacher and I am currently preparing my own students for their SAT exam on April 5th. We are covering math content as well as different strategies, tips, hints, short cuts, etc.

Spanish

I have experience tutoring/teaching Spanish at the beginner's and intermediate levels. I took several courses of Spanish myself - in school and online. Ever since I did learn Spanish myself, I started to teach it especially to the students from k-8 and just a couple of high school students. I use different resources to teach Spanish: my own expertise, songs, CDs, handouts, worksheets, books, and different activities that reinforce learning the new language.

Special Needs

I have experience working with special education students and teachers for at least 2 years now. I teach math in inclusion classrooms. I accommodate and modify my assignments and curriculum to meet the needs of students with special needs (gifted students, students with learning disabilities, students with 504 plans, etc.). Over these two years, I had a privilege to work with students with seizure, asthma, back problems, learning disabilities, emotional problems, and gifted students. I follow their IEPs to provide the best services and teaching experience to each one of them. Personally, I really enjoy working with special education students - they help me grow as a true teacher.

Study Skills

I have many years of personal experience of learning how to study. I was learning them from my teachers and classmates when I was in an elementary and high school. I was always trying to find different ways to learn and different ways to study. I knew that I had to be well prepared for college because if I would not know how to study, it would take me much longer time to graduate. Now, I am a math teacher who, for the last few years, teaches her students the most efficient ways to study. You can gain these skills too, if you want to. You decide.

Wonderful tutor

We are so glad that we found such a competent tutor in Malgorzata. My son is a upcoming senior in high school and is preparing for the ACT. His previous tutor had to stop tutoring for private reasons and Malgorzata was able to step in immediately and take over where she left off. She is very flexible in her scheduling and my son is very impressed with her knowledge and her kindness. She goes out o
