I have been tutoring on staff at a large suburban high school for 7 years. I started out tutoring in English. Upon discovering the large number of students who needed math help, I switched to tutoring in math, which I've come to love.
Since my primary background is in words, and I've come to math relatively recently, I find I am good at explaining concepts to students in simple language. This is in contrast to math teachers who've been teaching the same subject so long that they can no longer explain it adequately because that can't remember what it's like to not understand the subject.
Having previously been a professional communicator, I can explain math concepts in plain English, without using math jargon or educational buzz words. My students often say, "Ah hah! If my teacher had explained it like THAT I would have understood it in class."
I look forward to helping struggling students improve in math. Please contact me for tutoring sessions in the evenings or on weekends.

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.
