“**Knowledgeable and patient tutor**”

I am retired from teaching all levels of high school math, including calculus. My most recent position was at an American school in Switzerland with American students from selective prep schools in the U.S. I have taught in independent schools in several states. I have tutored students, both in groups and individually in subjects and also for

In-person lessons

Margaret has in just a few lessons been very helpful in reducing my sons fear and anxiety over math. She is able to explain Algebra in a way that is easier to understand.

Margaret did a great job for my daughter on Algebra 1. She was willing to drive an hour each way, and took us on with short notice.

Math:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have taught Geometry, including proofs, for over 20 years. I try to have my students see proofs as puzzles and have fun doing them. I warn students to think about relationships, not merely memorize theorems.

I work to give students a real understanding of the relationships that tie the various topics in precalculus together. I want the student to find patterns that apply to many topics rather than memorizing how to do each problem. I would like for my students to learn to enjoy math.

I have worked with students preparing for both SAT and PSAT test for many years. I want the student to relax, look at the test as a game and see how a few tricks can help. Most students can raise scores by many points with just some guided practice and helpful hints.

I work to help students understand the many uses of trig and to be able to apply their knowledge. Patterns are emphasized over memorizing. I expect students to be willing to put in the time required for mastery of trig.
