About Tracy


Bio

Hi!
My name is Tracy. I love tutoring kids and adults in Math. I am a retired Engineer (from Ford Motor Company) and an Engineering graduate from Michigan State University. I have over 20 years experience in tutoring. I thoroughly enjoy explaining concepts in a concise way that resonates with the student so they walk away understanding well enough to explain it back to me.

I prefer tutoring at the local library by appointment.

Most students I have tutored have pulled their grades up...

I prefer tutoring at the local library by appointment.

Most students I have tutored have pulled their grades up by a whole grade or more in a short period of time. I have tutored students in middle school, high school and many adults getting ready for various tests that involve Math with a great success rate.

Continuing lessons with awesome Tracy!!

Another terrific lesson for ACT/SAT preparation! Patient and great connection with student! Plan to continue weekly lessons with Tracy. Great meeting location, too.

session 2

Great progress, I think it would be beneficial to check over the completion of his homework packets as well just to make sure he is applying it to his graded work, thanks again.

Tutor responded:

I am so proud of how well Josh has done in these few weeks! He is a Rock Star setting a goal and turning his grades around!

Very helpful!

Tracy has helped me prepare to take the SAT after not taking a math class for three years, she has been extremely helpful in bringing those skills back! I feel more prepared to take the SAT and score high enough to get into the teaching program at EMU.

Thank you Madison, for your kind words! I am excited for you and your future!

Excellent Tutor

Tracy has been an excellent tutor. In a few months time my daughter has brought her geometry grade up from a D - to a B. She comes out of each session with a better understanding of that week's material. Highly recommend.
