My name is Irene R. and I come to you with many different experiences that allow me to help you develop a true understanding for how math is used in the real world!

My name is Irene R. and I come to you with many different experiences that allow me to help you develop a true understanding for how math is used in the real world! I graduated from Marquette University with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. While working in a vehicle design company for many years, I pursued my Masters degree (MBA). After working several years as a design engineer, I decided to try tutoring as a personal business. This business was quite successful and I had a variety of elementary thru high school students I tutored for about 10 years. I truly enjoyed helping students develop their understanding of math concepts and their applications. As a result, I decided to work to become a certified math teacher. Once I completed the certification process, I worked as a middle school math teacher in 6th grade for 13 years. At this point, I am reaching out to help students once again as a personal tutor so that they can be more successful in middle school and beyond.

I develop lesson plans and teaching tools based on each student’s needs. These may include hands on approaches, practice in a variety of forms, math games, and individual support in your own school’s curriculum.

I have extensive exposure to math to on both academic and real-world platforms. I am able to tutor elementary thru high school students because of my own school and work experiences.

I would love to help you become a more successful math student and hopefully give you real world insight along the way. We need more engineers and you are on your way!

Please contact me for any help you may need and we'll work together to help you meet your goals, schedule lessons, or work on assignments.

Prealgebra

As a design engineer, I used algebra on a regular basis to create mechanical parts. Then, as a teacher, I was able to help students make connections between algebra in the classroom and real-world applications. Providing opportunities for students to Seeing how math is used their own lives uses was also a goal for me as a teacher.

Patient and engaging teacher

I am 10 years old and needed math help. I like miss Irene because she was taught me how to do the box method for multiplication. I understood this very fast. I also liked how she explained things, she was very patient and made sure I got it. We also played games at the end which was fun. I want to stay with miss Irene because I am comfortable learning with her.

Fun and engaging tutor!

Irene used real life, practical examples of fractions to engage my son in the math lesson! When asked how he liked the session, he said it was good. That is high praise from my 11 year old!

Doletta, 5 lessons with Irene

Great first session

Irene was able to build rapport with my son very quickly by honing in on his interests. He was motivated to continue working on math after his first session and is looking forward to meeting with her next week!

Knowledgeable, patient, and flexible

Irene is a great teacher. She is knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and very supportive. During online learning our son had lost interest in math altogether. She has found a way to motivate him and keep him interested.
