Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is often a huge hurdle for young students. My role as their tutor is to give them the skills, understanding and confidence to succeed! My affinity for math, and algebra in particular, led me to complete a college concentration in Math Analysis. One of my success stories involves a rising sixth-grade student who worked with me through the summer and successfully tested into seventh grade math. I strive to bring that same success to every student by approaching each tutoring session with patience and positivity.
