About Lois

As a math teacher/tutor for 30 plus years, I am proficient in and have tutored/taught Algebra 1 and 2, geometry, pre-calculus, trigonometry, math prep for SAT, ACT, GRE, GED, COOP and PRAXIS.

My graduate degree is a BA in mathematics from Montclair State University, with a secondary teaching certificate (grades 7-12), as well as elementary math certification. I have also worked (for 2 semesters) as an adjunct at Bloomfield College, teaching algebra and geometry to returning students.

My approach is simple and straight forward: find and diagnose the problem areas if they're not already known, and teach them is a "simple and understandable" language format, since most math texts are extremely wordy and take forever to get to the point. It has worked beautifully with my many students over the years, and they often comment on how easy it seems after my explanation, and i'm very proud of the fact that i can get through to students who have been struggling. It's very rewarding to see that "light" go on, as i'm helping them to succeed. I really love my job!

Feel free to contact me with any further questions/comments/ concerns you may have. I'm looking forward to helping you!
