About Tracy

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 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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored several students in preparing for the Math portion of the ACT. Each student has commented on how much better he/she felt going into the exam than prior to the tutoring sessions.

Since I have approximately 20 years experience tutoring students in all levels of Math, and the ACT covers a variety of topics in Math, it is a very good fit for me to tutor kids wanting some extra help in preparing for the exam.

Algebra 1

I am a retired Engineer who has tutored for the better part of 2 decades in Middle School, High School and some college level math courses, including algebra. I explain a concept in a way the student can grasp it, do a problem or two with them, have them do a problem or two, and then have them teach me how to do one to ensure they have it down before moving on. I have tutored students ages middle school to mid 60s going after a degree; with great success.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring in most levels of Math for the better part of 2 decades. I am a retired engineer who has tutored middle school, high school and adults from Pre Algebra through Calculus with great success, including algebra 2.

Geometry

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering. I have tutored in Geometry (and several other Math courses) for almost 20 years. Specifically in Geometry, I have probably had 40 students. I have tutored 1:1, small groups and in the classroom in this subject.

Prealgebra

I am a retired Engineer who has tutored for almost 20 years. I have a BS in Engineering. I have tutored approximately 75 students (or more) in PreAlgebra who have successfully pulled their grades up remarkable. I have tutored in small groups, classroom size, and 1:1.

Precalculus

I am a retired Engineer with a BS degree in Engineering. I have approximately 20 years experience tutoring in Math. Specific to PreCalculus I have tutored approximately 30+ students in the subject. All of whom grasped the material much better after tutoring sessions. My goal is to explain the problem, do a problem then have them teach how to do a problem before moving onto the next concept.

SAT Math

I have 20 years experience in tutoring in all levels of Math; so test prep for the SAT fits right into my qualifications as it covers topics from several Math topics.

Trigonometry

I am a retired Engineer who has tutored for approximately 20 years in Math. Specific to Trigonometry, I have probably tutored 25 - 40 students over that time with great success in improved grades. Most of the Trigonometry sessions were 1:1 or as many as 1:3 small group.
