Hi there!
I have been tutoring math since 1994 and I am a high school/jr high math teacher. I have a Illinois Teaching Certificate in Mathematics/Secondary Education. I've worked at the high school level and have taught as an adjunct instructor at Lincoln Land Community College and at the University of Illinois at Springfield. I am also a Master Tutor at Heartland Community College in Normal, IL.
Lots of people struggle with math. Studies show that 4 out of 3 people struggle with math...

Lots of people struggle with math. Studies show that 4 out of 3 people struggle with math (haha). I'm a great tutor because I understand the struggle. Yes, once, believe it or not, I also struggled with math. I do believe I've made every mistake in math known to man. But, then I was fortunate to have a great teacher who opened the door to understanding for me. The math code was broken! It is my mission in life to help others break the mysterious math code (and join the "mathematicians club").
I tailor my methods to each individual student and their learning style, whether it be visual, audial, or kinesthetic (you need to see it, hear it, or do it).
My students have had much success (one even went on to get a Ph.D.!) I think the best compliment I ever got was from a third grade student who sent me a card saying, "Thanks for making me a real mathematician!"
