About Lori


Bio

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 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.

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.
