About Wendy

My name is Wendy. I have a secondary school (middle and high) teaching certificate in math, and an endorsement in psychology, and experience with most other subjects. I have been teaching for most of the past 20 years, usually in math, but often helping with many other subjects. I have developed a number of little tricks to help with remembering many steps and different methods. I try to make learning fun and develop a comfort with it. I don't want math to be boring or tricky, so I try to meet those issues. As a tutor, I promise to be punctual, reliable, and fair. I will do my best to help you to achieve your academic goals.

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.

Geometry

I have taught geometry for much of the last 15 years, and doing so successfully. I have found that approaching geometry like another math or algebra class does not help with understanding. Instead, it takes a retraining in the brain, and I see my job as facilitating that training.
