About Pamela

Hello! I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010 with a Master's degree in Mathematics. During my time there, I worked as a teaching assistant for every class in the standard calculus sequence. As part of that job I led calculus recitations and tutored students in a variety of math classes at a math assistance center.

I have a Certificate of Eligibility to teach mathematics in New Jersey. Since moving to New Jersey in July of 2013, I have been working as a private tutor for middle school, high school, and college students in subjects including algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. I have also helped students prepare for the math sections of tests such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, and PRAXIS. I will try to meet you at your current ability level, and help you build an understanding of the subject so that you can begin to approach problems with confidence.

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.

Calculus

While I was completing my master's degree in math, I worked as a teaching assistance for all three classes in the typical college-level calculus sequence (Calculus I, II, and III). I have also tutored high school and college students in calculus classes.

Linear Algebra

I took an undergraduate course in linear algebra at the University of Maine in 2005, and two graduate level courses in linear algebra at the University of Pittsburgh in 2008 and 2009. I received an 'A' in each linear algebra course that I took. I also passed the preliminary exam in linear algebra for the Ph.D. program at the University of Pittsburgh in 2009.

Praxis

I have a master's degree in math, and I took the Praxis II Mathematics: Content Knowledge exam in May, 2013. I received a Certificate of Excellence for my score on the exam. I have also successfully helped clients prepare to take the Praxis I or Praxis Core test in mathematics.

Excellent Math Tutoring for Middle School Student — We were lucky to find Pam for tutoring my daughter this summer. Pam was very flexible with her times and was able to fit us in for two sessions per week over the summer. We have had 10 sessions with Pam. My daughter is starting a new school and we wanted Pam to help with the transition from the current math program to our new school's math program. My daughter can get anxious about math so we we ...
