About Lori

I have a BS degree in mathematics and had a provisional NJ teaching certificate that I never pursued. I started my career as an actuary and have passed several exams.

I have been working as a systems analyst for over 30 years and tutoring on the side as I enjoy teaching very much. Many years ago I tutored English for the Fortune Society which assisted ex-offenders pursue their high school GED.

My interests are math and music, both of which require practice, practice, practice! As I tutor I can definitely help your child succeed but please don't make the mistake of thinking one hour of tutoring the night before the final exam is going to make up for a lost year of hard work.

I am an avid reader and although my bachelor's degree is in mathematics I have spent almost an equal amount of time tutoring English and Social Studies. I emphasize critical analysis, prompting students to think past their initial conclusions. Reading truly is the key to success in all subjects, including math.

I have a special knack at helping students with algebraic word problems.

I will gladly travel to your location around Bergen county NJ most evenings and Sundays. My rate is discounted if you are tutored in my home.

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.

Algebra 1

I possess a BS degree in Mathematics (cum laude) from SUNY Albany. I grew up in NY State where I passed the Algebra Regents exam with a score of 98. In addition I have passed the Society of Actuaries exam 100 which encompasses subjects up to calculus and linear algebra. I have been tutoring algebra since high school and have done so on and off for over 30 years.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring algebra since high school and have done so on and off for over 30 years.

Microsoft Excel

As part of my job as Systems Director for a Fortune 100 firm I have taught technical skills both formally and informally over my 25+ year career. Microsoft Excel is a staple in every position I have held throughout this time. (Of course we started with Lotus way way back!). I have taught more advanced concepts within Excel such as the valuable VLOOKUP command, relative vs absolute referencing, and macro scripting.
