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.
