“**Great tutor, very patient!**”

I have taught high school math for 12 years. I have taught freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors in all levels of math classes. Most of my experience is in a traditional classroom setting, but I also have taught block classes. I have taught Read more

Jen G. was great with my daughter. My daughter understood her and really enjoyed working with her. We are looking forward to working with her again. Thank you.

Test Preparation:

ACT Math
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

For many years, I have taught junior level math classes. I am familiar with the ACT math test and reading comprehension section. I have helped juniors (in all levels of math classes) prepare for the ACT, and I have many tips that help them. For three years, I also taught a reading comprehension class, which focused on helping students to actually learn how to take a reading comprehension test.

I have taught all levels of Algebra 1 (beginner through honors) in traditional and block settings. The topics I covered are, but not limited to, radicals, systems of equations, rational expressions, rational exponents, polynomials, graphing, quadratics, factoring, etc. I love algebra now, but I remember feeling very lost in my algebra class as a freshman in high school. I know that students feel frustrated when they don't "get it." Because of my understanding and patience, my algebra students have been successful over the years.

I have taught Algebra 2 (a beginner level class) and Advanced Algebra & Trigonometry (a middle-of-the-road class) for many years. The topics I covered were, but not limited to, matrices, unit circle, right triangle trig, systems of equations, graphing, word problems, laws of sines and cosines, etc. I have found that if a student truly cares about learning and works hard, then that is when they find success.

I love geometry! I have taught all levels of geometry (from beginner through honors) for many years. The topics I covered are, but not limited to, proofs, circles, area and volume of two- and three-dimensional objects, similar figures, congruent triangles, planes, polygons, etc. Recently, I had a student who struggled during the first three chapters, but I encouraged her to keep working. Toward chapters 4 and 5, this student finally began earning good grades, and she became the top student in my class. I inspired her and she chose to take three math classes as a senior, and she wants to major in math...all because my love for geometry is contagious!

I taught pre-calculus for 6 years and loved every minute of it! The topics I covered were, but not limited to, matrices, right triangle trig, unit circle, sequences and series, conics, derivatives and integrals of trig functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, the product, quotient, and chain rules, position, velocity, and acceleration word problems, etc. My notes are easy to understand and I teach it in a way so that students actually understand what I'm saying. It's a great class and I can't wait to tutor students in this area of math.

I have taught trigonometry for many years. This is one of my favorite branches of mathematics! The concepts I covered were, but not limited to, basic trig functions, trig identities, proving trig equations, solving trig equations, unit circle, right triangle trig, word problems, laws of sines and cosines, inverse trig functions, etc. When my youngest sister was a senior in high school, I tutored her in trig. She then taught some of her friends in that class. On the next quiz, the only students who passed were my sister and her friends. They succeeded because I helped her to understand the trig in a simple way.
