Are you or your student dreading taking the SATs? Avoiding reading the assigned novel for English class? Unsure of the best way to organize and complete homework, school assignments and projects? I can help.

I worked as a professional tutor and instructor at a well-respected independent learning center in Frederick, MD, for over three years, have over 17 years of tutoring experience, and am excited to be helping students and families again.

I work with elementary through high school age students to help them succeed and earn higher grades in a variety of subjects including SAT test prep, literature, writing and grammar, and elementary math through algebra 2. I can also help you or your child study better and learn faster with more efficient study skills.

I know what the best strategies and resources in each of my subject areas are, but I also know that one prescribed method won't help every student because each student is unique and has different learning styles and strengths. Each session will be tailored to suit how you or your child learns best and what will help him or her gain the most academic achievement in the shortest amount of time. I'm not afraid to try new techniques or to think outside the box to discover what works best for the student. Let my expertise and knowledge help you or your student to do better and begin to enjoy learning.

I am a member of MENSA. I live in a smoke-free home but am comfortable tutoring in smoking and pet-friendly homes.

Elementary (K-6th)

As the Assistant Director of Afterschool Programs at Mindworks Learning Institute from 2005 to 2008 I have worked with students as young as five years old to help them improve their communication, reading, writing, and math skills. When working with elementary school students I always try to incorporate something fun yet challenging into each tutoring session to help them see how learning can be exciting instead of dull and boring. By getting your elementary school student excited about going to school and learning new things it sets him or her up for future success in middle and high school. Just as with older students, each elementary school student is unique and has different learning styles. My five plus years of experience working with a diverse group of students has given me the experience and expertise needed to tailor my tutoring sessions to best suit your young child's needs and learning styles and I have many different techniques and methods to make even the most challenging concepts more accessible for elementary aged students. Let my enthusiasm, experience, and expertise help your child discover how fun learning can be.

I helped write and develop the study skills curriculum at Mindworks Learning Institute when I was the Assistant Director of Afterschool Programs from 2005 through 2008. I have experience helping students in the 4th through 12th grade improve their study skills, test taking abilities, and organizational skills. Even when tutoring in other subjects I make sure my students are using the best study skills strategies to maximize their tutoring and learning experience. If you or your student has a messy locker, disorganized binders, or a backpack crammed full of crumpled papers, I can help. If you or your student completes the homework on time but then can't find it to turn it in, I can help. If you or your student took notes in class but now can't find them to study for the final exam, I can help. Finally, if you or your student needs help getting organized for a science fair project or term paper, I can help. Let my knowledge and expertise help you improve your study skills, earn higher grades on tests, and alleviate the frustration of not being able to find that really important piece of paper you're looking for.

She makes the lesson enjoyable , and she is reliable

Tracey heip my son with all middle school subjects' Homework. she is patent.. encouraging and supportive. She will make sure my son understands a lesson before she continues. Her classes with my son are enjoyable. My son said she is the best teacher ever. He is always looking forward to doing his homework. He never would like to do his work until now. Thanks to Tracey. She is definitely an awesome teacher. I will recommend her to anyone whose child doesn't like to do his homework or get so frustrated when he does know what to do..

Tracey has been a great support for my son

Tracey has been tutoring my 9th grade son on organizational and study skills along with whatever else he needs help with depending on what he is working on in class (writing thesis statements, parallel structure, etc). She sends resources for him to use after the lesson as needed. After the lesson, my son has a better understanding of the topics they discussed. Tracey's tutoring has been very helpful so far. She is patient and encouraging with him and provides a very detailed summary after the lessons.

Knowledgeable Positive and Accessible

Tracy is a godsend. My daughter was having difficulty with managing the volume of work in junior high which just compounded with covid. My daughter felt so comfortable with Tracy she was able to open up to her. Tracy is super positive and knowledgeable. Tracy even likes to help with Algebra!!! We adore her!!!

Ruth, 11 lessons with Tracey

Wonderful

My daughter was not excited at first to begin tutoring. Her first meeting with Tracey went so well. Tracey is extremely organized and knowledgeable. She makes the most of every minute. I am so excited to see how all these skills will help my daughter become a better scholar.

Session 2

Tracey continues to impress both myself and my daughter with her preparedness in the tutoring sessions. She has accurately determined the areas of strength and areas in which my daughter needs to improve. She is successfully helping to build her confidence with each successive session.

Great tutor

Tracey has been wonderful to work with. She clearly understands what is needed for Acuplacer testing requirements. She provides a review shortly after our lessons, too. Very helpful on recapping issues, too.

Excellent Tutor

Tracey is an overall great tutor. She's very patient with her students and works with them at their own pace. She also explains everything thoroughly, allowing her students to understand each subject they're taught. She's very easy to reach by e-mail and is also very flexible with scheduling. Tracey is also very nice and my experience with her as my tutor was great.
