I tutor in high school and early college-level math with an emphasis on practicality, application to the real world, and visualization. Subjects include Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Math SAT prep. I have 9 years of experience tutoring in these subjects for students ages 14-25. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from Virginia Tech. I have experience tutoring both in one-on-one lessons and in group tutoring...

I have a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from Virginia Tech. I have experience tutoring both in one-on-one lessons and in group tutoring lessons.
I know that learning math is not a one size fits all T-shirt so I spend time before each tutoring session preparing for your specific needs and preferences.
I hated math through most of high school because there was a huge focus on memorization and not on the application or visualization. My turning point was when I took a calculus course with an excellent, dedicated teacher who showed me how the things I was learning in the classroom could apply to real life. My passion is passing on the tremendous favor that the teacher did for me to my students.
Once I realized that I could be excited about math, I worked to get a BS in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. I graduated and became a Biomedical design and manufacturing engineer. During my studies, I tutored classmates in their math classes and in my professional work I mentored new engineers. Engineering is a heavily math-based course of study that builds on all of the essential basics taught from Algebra I through Calculus. My experiences make me uniquely qualified to help students who are looking for a little bit of extra support in math subjects and are passionate about finding a purpose for their studies.
I am so excited to hear from you about your specific challenges and come up with a plan to overcome them together. Please reach out to me with any questions! Select the orange contact button and we will get something scheduled!
Encouraging, knowledgeable, friendly and professional
My high school junior really enjoyed her first session -- Meredith was patient, thorough, regularly checked for understanding, and had my daughter set the pace. Meredith reached out before the session to get relevant background information and arrived very prepared and knowledgeable. My daughter was definitely feeling much more relaxed and confident at the end of the hour, and is looking forward to working with Meredith again soon.Chris and, 2 lessons with Meredith
Immediately helpful, patient and productive!
My daughter, very stressed and confused in honors pre calc, was immediately put at ease by Meredith. She felt more confident and able after just one session. We are grateful to have partnered with her to offset the classroom teaching style that is less effective for her as a learner. In addition to knowing how to reach and teach kids, she is highly communicative and very responsive.Kyle, 2 lessons with Meredith
Knowledgeable and very friendly!!!
Meredith was wonderful with my daughter Emily, a high school freshman, helping her with Algebra I. Emily was struggling with Algebra all year and my only regret is that we did not find Meredith sooner. She helped Emily improve her grade over the past quarter and helped her with Math confidence. Moreover she was very friendly and appreciated how Meredith would talk to her about things she enjoyed at school such as sports. I can't say enough good things and will definitely be reaching out to her again when Algebra II comes along.Elizabeth, 12 lessons with Meredith
so patient and kind!
Meredith helped me with my algebra class, im terrible at math and when i did not understand a concept she would always find a way to explain it in another way so that i could understand it. she helped me fill in the gaps that i was missing, and i feel much more confident in math thanks to her, if i need more tutoring in the future ill definitely come back!Tito, 6 lessons with Meredith
Excellent math tutor!
My daughter has now had a few lessons with Meredith and I can already see how much more confident she is in what she has learned. She would always get nervous during tests and after her first session with Meredith she did better on an Algebra 1 quiz than she had done the whole year. My daughter enjoys her sessions with Meredith and tells me after each one how she now understands the concepts so much more clearly than before. Meredith's math knowledge is extensive, but it's not just that - it's that she makes the sessions interesting, she has an abundance of patience, and she has the ability to identify what is going to most helpful for the student, and focus on that. If you're looking for a tutor, I wholeheartedly recommend Meredith!Elizabeth, 23 lessons with Meredith
Very patient, knowledgeable and engaging tutor
Meredith has been working with my high school freshman on Algebra 1 and she has been so helpful and patient. Our son understands the basics fairly well but tends to want to rush through the problems and not show his work. She is a master at getting him engaged without making him feel bad and already in just 3 sessions he is getting his homework done either on time or even early. We will definitely keep working with Meredith! She is an amazing math teacher and great with kids too.Susan, 5 lessons with Meredith

I like how Meredith is patient and gives me a chance to solve the question as well as give me helpful feedback
Meredith is teaching a great deal about logarithyms and helping me to become better. I am set to graduate in the 2022 spring semester with Bachelors of Science In Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) Degree in Psychology.Tyler, 7 lessons with Meredith
Fantastic tutor and very patient
Meredith is great working with our daughter in math. Our daughter is a sophomore in high school and has struggled with math confidence. Meredith has been kind, positive and very helpful for our daughter to gain understanding and confidence to succeed in her high school math class.Jeff, 2 lessons with Meredith
