About Norma

My objective in tutoring is to help my students reach their goals. In practice, this means that I work hard to assist my students in understanding the subject matter while also teaching the student to become an independent learner. My years of experience have given me the skills to put concepts in terms that students will understand.

I have many years of experience tutoring students ranging in level from high school through the first several years of college math. I am as comfortable showing a young student how fractions work as I am in demonstrating graphing to an adult who is struggling with algebra.

In addition to my many years of working as a private tutor, I also have experience tutoring in a walk-in community college math center. This has given me quite a bit of skill working with a wide range of adults on many levels.

I look forward to hearing from you. I hope I can help you reach your goals!

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.

Geometry

I have tutored geometry over many years, and have seen how the teaching of the subject has changed. I have adapted my tutoring approach as the curriculum has been redesigned, always with the needs of my students my first priority.

SPSS

I have experience working with SPSS for analyzing data and explaining statistical concepts.

Statistics

I have been tutoring general high school and college statistics students for many years. Over the past several years I have tutored individuals privately every semester, both in person and online. I also tutor students at a drop in math center. Additionally, I've taught applied statistics for the social sciences and business. Because of this, I've learned numerous ways of explaining things and numerous ways of figuring things out (including calculators, Excel, StatCrunch, R, SPSS, etc.)
