About Simone

Hello! I'm Simone G., a certified middle math teacher (pre-k to grade 12) with a passion for mathematics and teaching. I have taught and tutored for several years, both as an Instructor for Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth (Competitive Mathematics, Cryptography), the Sylvan Learning Center and private tutoring. My current position at a math teacher affords me the opportunity to work with a wide range of students, and teach a variety of courses which include; general math (grade 6, 7), pre-algebra, algebra 1, and geometry.

I attempt to be creative in my approach and focus on students' conceptual understanding, modeling the rigor emphasized by the Common Core and Mathematical Practice Standards. In between sessions, I expect students to complete any assigned work and review assigned materials. My ultimate goal is to increase students' confidence, grades and conceptual understanding.

We can begin sessions at your earliest convenience whether in person or online. Online sessions are conducted via the Wyzant platform, which utilizes a whiteboard, audio and video to create an productive learning environment. If you are hesitant about online sessions, take some time and tour the platform at https://www.wyzant.com/online/enterdemoroom/.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please let me know. Looking forward to helping you become a MATH ROCKSTAR!

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 currently teach algebra 1 to seventh and eighth graders, and have done so for the past few years. My experience teaching lower and higher-level math courses, affords me the opportunity to identify essential skills and common misconceptions. I enjoy both helping students conceptually understand the material and achieve better grades.

Elementary Math

I am certified to teach mathematics in pre-kindergarten to grade 12. I have experience working as an Math Intervention Coach for third grades. As a coach, I identify lacking skills and provide individualized instruction to improve their conceptual understanding of math.

Geometry

I currently teach geometry to eighth graders, and have done so for the past few years.

Prealgebra

I currently teach pre-algebra to eighth graders, and have done so for the past few years. My experience teaching lower and higher-level math courses, affords me the opportunity to identify essential skills and common misconceptions. I enjoy both helping students conceptually understand the material and achieve better grades.

Very Impressed

I find Simone to be extremely thorough. She would ask my daughter questions to really understand just where she is at in her thought process, how much she knows about the subject matter and how to help her. She took her back to the basics which is what she requires. Now she is building on that foundation. I am very impressed by this. She did not assume she already knew. She is taking the time
