About Doris

I am a retired teacher with 30 years experience teaching in both the elementary level (mostly upper elementary) and middle school math. I have also
taught at Kalamazoo Valley Community College teaching courses in pre-algebra,
Algebra, and business math. During these past two years I have been tutoring students.

I enjoy working with students of all ages, but I specialize in grades 4-8. I am willing to tutor at your home or meet your child at a local library, whatever works best for you. I can help your child with homework, work on skills needed to be successful in class, studying for a test, catching up on missed assignments, and in general.

My training in college was elementary education with a math major. My graduate work was in the field of learning disabilities. My strengths are taking math problems and helping to break down the pieces of the problem. I accomplish this by interacting with your child and seeing where the breakdown of understanding
Math is occurring. Using the techniques I have been trained with and adding what I have learned from my years of teaching I can assist your child to a much better understanding of mathematics.

I enjoy teaching it is my passion. Through tutoring and working much more intensely with students I find I am able to meet students where they are and help their understanding of steps missing.
