About Margaret

Currently I am an adjunct instructor at two local junior colleges, Moraine Valley and Triton. I teach a variety of developmental mathematic courses. These classes are for students who are unable to place into college level math. I find that many people who take these courses have missed key concepts from elementary, middle and high school. Some have always had difficulty with this subject and for the first time begin to feel successful. That is one reward I am able to see after a semester of hard work.

Prior to my current position I was a middle school mathematics teacher. I was able to teach some accelerated classes as well as remedial ones. I did this for ten years and then decided to stay home with my three children when they were young.

I have tutored children and adults in mathematics skills, concepts, problem-solving along with test preparation and algebra.
I love those "light bulb" moments when the students realize they know what they are doing! I am able to come to you or to a mutually convenient place for instruction. I will provide feedback and will assign homework upon request. My goal is to make your child successful.

I ask that if you must cancel you give me 24 hour notice but I also know sometimes that is not possible so if that is the case, we can arrange a make-up session. I look forward to helping your children overcome their math issues. I have told students that I don't expect to convert them to math lovers but at least they like the subject!
