About Beth


Bio

I am now 2 weeks past my second shot! If you would like in person tutoring (and are not allergic to cats) you may come to my home in Cary (with a mask). I am also available virtually.

I have more than 18 years of professional experience tutoring students ages 8-80+. I have worked extensively with middle and high schoolers, college students, and returning adult students.

I taught high school math in North Carolina (Intro to HS Math all the way through Calculus BC) for four years. I hold...

I am now 2 weeks past my second shot! If you would like in person tutoring (and are not allergic to cats) you may come to my home in Cary (with a mask). I am also available virtually.

I have more than 18 years of professional experience tutoring students ages 8-80+. I have worked extensively with middle and high schoolers, college students, and returning adult students.

I taught high school math in North Carolina (Intro to HS Math all the way through Calculus BC) for four years. I hold a teaching certificate in ESL/ESOL (English for non-native speakers). My undergraduate degree was chemical engineering, which gives me a strong background in chemistry and physics.

I have a minor in Spanish from NC State and speak well. Most of the music I listen to is in Spanish and there are many Spanish speakers in my life. So I can help students in Spanish classes, or people who want a practical grasp of Spanish.

The time I have invested learning a foreign language has given me a better understanding of how English sentences are structured. So, my grammar and writing are excellent and I enjoy helping others express themselves effectively.

I can teach all portions of the SAT and ACT and have lots of experience doing so. My GRE scores were very high as well. I have taught for big-name companies and know that private tutoring with me is the best help available. But, please note that tests like the SAT and ACT are different than tests on specific concepts, so scores are less plastic than grades in a class.

I navigate academic settings well and like to help others reach their full potential in their classes and personal endeavors. As a Caldwell Scholar alumna, I have interviewed students applying for scholarships. As a high school teacher, I helped students with college applications and saw 3 of my students win prestigious full scholarships.

Contact me with any questions and I will reply promptly!

Fantastic Tutor

Explained things very clearly and was very helpful. Definitely recommend! We went over some Algebra 2/precalculus equations. Also very impressed with her use of technology.

Jessie, 1 lesson with Beth

Knowledgable tutor; positive experience!

Beth has been teaching algebra I/II and beginner Spanish to our freshman. She’s knowledgeable and flexible to meet our scheduling needs. It’s been a positive experience.

Michael, 46 lessons with Beth

Very good first session

Beth went over Algebra with my son - he reported that she made things easy to understand. He was not very receptive to online tutoring, but was very pleased with how it went and we are looking forward to the next session.

Nora, 9 lessons with Beth

Excellent tutor

Our daughter very much enjoyed her session with Beth, and after the session seemed confident that she understood the work and motivated to pursue the subjects with more focus -- which was a big part of our original goal.

Elysa, 6 lessons with Beth

Algebra lesson

She was amazing. My daughter understood everything she said. She knows how to talk to kids, and knows her math!

Leah, 30 lessons with Beth

My teenage son liked her:)

Beth was able to get my reticent, math challenged teen to apply himself for an hour and he didn’t complain afterwards! She was patient and encouraging while pushing him to be more independent. Total win in our house!

Elizabeth, 3 lessons with Beth

Beth helped me with analyzing data for my research study

Beth is an expert in statistics. She read my paper to get a good understanding about what my goals are. Beth helped me to understand how to use excel for data analysis of my study and create expert graphs. Great experience!

Maren, 2 lessons with Beth

Really great tutor!!! I highly recommend her.

Beth is an amazing tutor. She knows her stuff inside and out, and is completely reliable and flexible if you are in a bind. She helped my son with high school math and chemistry, and she was able to jump in and help him where he was at right away with upper level concepts and problems. She has been a lifesaver!

Jay, 177 lessons with Beth

Great tutor overall

Mrs. Beth has only met with me twice and I already am so thankful I picked her to be my tutor. She's on time and very nice but most important, super helpful. She knew absolutely everything and did great on teaching me the information in just two days!
