About Gayle


Bio

Math has always been a fascinating subject for me, and an equalizer across various professions and cultures. All disciplines use math in one form or another, so understanding its rules and applications is important for today's students.

As a Cum Laude mathematics graduate, certificated Math Teacher, and tutor for over 40 years, I've helped many middle- and high-school students gain proficiency with math.

Math has always been a fascinating subject for me, and an equalizer across various professions and cultures. All disciplines use math in one form or another, so understanding its rules and applications is important for today's students.

As a Cum Laude mathematics graduate, certificated Math Teacher, and tutor for over 40 years, I've helped many middle- and high-school students gain proficiency with math.

From the first meeting with a student, I establish a "safe" tutoring environment: I don't grade students and I don't judge them. I'm here to help them in those areas where they "just don't get it."

Students have obligations, too: 1) They have to tell me what they don't understand. 2) They have to practice the concepts and skills.

Working this way has helped my students improve their grades and their confidence.

One parent said it best:

"My child used to think that math was difficult and that passing grades were beyond a reasonable goal. My child now feels that math is 'easy' and understands concepts at a much deeper level. I feel this is due to individualized skills and techniques to meet the learning needs of my child. Ms. H has been able to establish a rapport with my child that enables a high degree of comfort, trust, and confidence. My child continually remarks how she can 'trust' Ms. H with giving her confidence in math and better grades."

In addition to review and practice, we discuss the student's goals and career options so that I can describe how math could be applied in those jobs. My careers inside and outside of classroom teaching, in addition to my involvement in many community-wide projects, enables me to relate real-world situations where math is essential.

I'm flexible about where to meet. The location should be a quiet space to minimize distractions. I can work at your house, at a nearby library, or you can come to my office in Red Bank.

As for scheduling, I appreciate your adhering to our agreed-upon times. I understand that unexpected situations can come up and try to be flexible to a reasonable extent. We can arrange a make-up session.

To ensure that I meet your expectations, I ask for both oral and written feedback from parents about the effectiveness of my tutoring.

As a personal bonus, I've learned a great deal from the students I've tutored. I discover the kind of person each one is and am heartened to hear of their plans for the future. I make sure that they are as prepared as possible to reach their goals.

I look forward to hearing from you. Reach out to me soon so, together, we can get your child back on track to confidence and success in his or her math work.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taught and/or tutored high school math courses for almost 20 years. Algebra 1 is one of my favorites because it introduces the student to the idea of relationships between objects. Algebra 1 is the foundation for all subsequent math courses, so confidence in Algebra 1 concepts is vital. I have the experience to help your child gain understanding and confidence in this course.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 serves two purposes: 1) it pulls together the skills from Algebra 1 and Geometry and 2) introduces extensions of those earlier concepts. From my many years of teaching and tutoring Algebra 2, I understand the challenges students can face in this course. At the same time, I try to use real-world scenarios to clarify where Algebra 2 concepts would be involved. Let me help you gain confidence and skill in this math course!
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a core subject in the math curriculum. It focuses on the physical properties of objects and their links to algebra concepts. Higher math curricula often rely on knowledge of geometry. I've taught geometry many times and like to emphasize its use in everyday life as well as its links to other math subjects.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Algebra is the foundation for math, science, and statistics investigations. Pre-Algebra introduces the foundational concepts used in all higher level math courses. I'm well versed in the Algebra concepts and can help your child understand them using clear language and real-life examples.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus deepens your understanding of and skills with various types of equations and graphs that are a lead-in to Calculus. I have taught Pre-Calculus and Calculus for years and understand how the features of these courses expand your array of equation types that you use in your chosen field.
SAT Math

SAT Math

Over the last eight years, I've helped many students prepare for the SAT so that their scores improved considerably. Students become comfortable with content, the types of questions, and how to budget their time. I can help your student, too!

Excellent tutor

Gayle is an excellent tutor. She has helped my daughter a lot in Algebra 2. She is very flexible and will work with you on the schedule and location of the sessions, as well as providing online sessions. I highly recommend her.

Vas, 30 lessons with Gayle

Knowledgeable and explained lessons clearly.

My son feels much more confident in the Precalculus and Algebra 2 subject areas covered after just one lesson. Ms. Gayle was punctual. She stressed the importance of letting her know what he didn’t understand, as well as the importance of completing practice problems.

Geralyn , 10 lessons with Gayle

Had 2 lessons and more are scheduled

My 13-year-old daughter likes her new tutor. Excellent communication, very flexible, always on-time. Geometry is not the funnest subject, but my daughter is enjoying it.

Natalia, 29 lessons with Gayle

Wonderful and Patient

Gayle worked with my 2 children online during the past school year. I had trouble finding a local math tutor, so I figured online was the next best thing. It was a wonderfully, easy experience considering she is in New Jersey and I am in North Carolina. The white board that Wyzant uses for them to work on is great because Gayle and my kids can both use it. It’s an interactive experience. The biggest bonus is that Gayle is so smart and kind and really knows how to break things down for them so they completely understand the math they are doing. She also works really hard to reschedule appts if the one you have isn’t going to work that week. I would recommend her to anyone and we are definitely getting on her schedule when the school year starts up again.

Jody, 23 lessons with Gayle

Great session

Gayle assisted me in understanding graphs and coordinate systems. Mostly, we touched on finding the center of a circle and it’s radius.

Paul, 127 lessons with Gayle

Incredibly Helpful

Gayle broke down concepts and made them understandable. My student (11th grade precalculus) earned a 98% on his quarterly exam! He went from struggling to confident. Thank you, Gayle.

Heather, 30 lessons with Gayle

Instills confidence

Gayle really helped my child to realize she really has the knowledge and is on the right path of analysis. She is excellent at explaining the concepts and encourages her students to ask questions

Nancy, 23 lessons with Gayle

Help with Algebra 2

Gayle has been great helping my son prepare for his last few tests. I really appreciate her friendly and respectful approach. She has been very responsive and reliable. My son also seemed very comfortable with her from their first meeting.

Nicole , 24 lessons with Gayle

Very Knowledgeable, patient and nice to work with

We went over my exam study guide dealing with solving quadratic equations, solving using interval notation, word problems, graphing quadratic functions, circles, polynomial functions, rations functions, exponential functions and simplifying the difference quotient. She was very helpful and made it very easy to understand. Very professional and personable, will definitely use her again!!
