About Tammy

I have a 4-year degree in mathematics, plus a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Degree. I taught for Salem-Keizer Schools for 10 years and am now teaching sixth grade at a private Christian school in town. I love math, however, and am always looking for tutoring jobs to help students gain an understanding and love for math as well! My specialty is Algebra, but can also help in pre-algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. I have a 4-year degree in mathematics, plus a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Degree.

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.

Algebra 1

I absolutely love algebra! I taught it in the public schools for 10 years, at both the high school and middle school levels. I hope after meeting with me, you also would develop a love of algebra. I enjoy helping students have a better understanding of what goes on behind the scenes when solving algebraic equations and also the joy of solving for that "mystery number"!

Algebra 2

I absolutely love algebra! I taught it in the public schools for 10 years, at both the high school and middle school levels. I hope after meeting with me, you also would develop a love of algebra. I enjoy helping students have a better understanding of what goes on behind the scenes when solving algebraic equations and also the joy of solving for that "mystery number"!

Bible Studies

I have a degree from a Christian liberal arts college where everyone graduates with a minor in Bible. I have read the entire Bible. I attended a Bible teaching church and currently teach at a Christian school where the Bible is taught.

Precalculus

I absolutely love algebra! I taught it in the public schools for 10 years, at both the high school and middle school levels. I hope after meeting with me, you also would develop a love of algebra. I enjoy helping students have a better understanding of what goes on behind the scenes when solving algebraic equations and also the joy of solving for that "mystery number"!

Swimming

I was on the varsity high school swim team for four years.
I taught swimming lessons for 5 years at the high school pool.
I was previously Red Cross life guard certified as well as Red Cross Water Safety Instructor certified. These certificates are currently expired, but I still retain that knowledge.
As an adult I taught the "mom and me" swimming class at the local YWCA.

Amazing results for a senior student

My daughter was failing Algebra 2. Tammy is helping her get back to where she needs to be to graduate by June. I couldn't be more grateful. Her re-test went from an F to a B. Thank you so much Tammy.
