About Margaret

As a tutor, it is exciting to help students break through and learn something new. I am most passionate about finding many ways to help students think through problems until the moment when they feel feel confident in themselves.

I have worked as the program director for tutoring program that serves 1000 elementary students through School District U-46 for the past year. As program director, I also worked in the classroom with students and helped them work through math problems. I also have two years experience as nanny where I tutored students in math in elementary and middle school.

I live in Woodstock with my husband and newborn baby. I love music, enjoying life and its beauty, and visiting places I have never been. I also love the joy of really helping other people - probably the best experiences of my life have been through helping.

I can come to your home if it's not too far away, or I can meet you at the library or a coffee shop. I really look forward to helping you excel in math and overcome fears and obstacles to success.

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.

ACT Math

I am currently tutoring students in ACT math and am comfortable helping students improve their scores.
