About Tammy


Bio

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 middle school math and science 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, pre-calculus and trigonometry.

A consistent, patient, rewarding, procedure

Tammy is a wonderful tutor. My 7th grade daughter has a solid understanding of pre algebra and problem solving that she did not have before. It's through constant and consistent reinforcement of procedures my daughter and Tammy have connected, and my daughter is retaining because of this!

Diana, 12 lessons with Tammy

Positive and Knowledgeable

Tammy came in with a positive attitude and quickly adapted the session to meet his needs. She quickly diagnosed what he needed and used the time extremely efficiently. They had a great first session!

Calvin, 11 lessons with Tammy

knowledgable and patient tutor

Tammy is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient, and her positive attitude towards learning math is very encouraging to my daughter. We have had two lessons with her so far and are very happy we found her

Mariam, 15 lessons with Tammy

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Tammy met with my daughter to help her prepare for a math test that she had failed once and was retaking. Tammy is patient and explains things in simple terms my daughter could understand. My daughter passed her test the second time after Tammy’s help!

Christi, 3 lessons with Tammy

Tammy is terrific!

My son is quite bright, but has dyslexia and dysgraphia. Tammy has helped him bring his Algebra 2 grade and SAT scores up in only a few tutoring sessions. Thanks, Tammy!

Micky, 13 lessons with Tammy

Fun and patient tutor

This was the first class, so I was sorta nervous! But my tutor was pretty calm, and if I got something wrong, she wouldn't get all mad or anything, she was patient. I like that about her! I loved the class!

Jayna, 1 lesson with Tammy

Positive attitude and patient!

Tammy is actually getting Leah to do homework! Thank you for your patience with our daughter. Her learning style is a little slower than some kids.

Joan, 7 lessons with Tammy

Knowledgeable, patient, conscientious

Tammy has developed a great rapport with my son. She is patient and kind yet is able to keep him on track during his sessions. His grade in Algebra 2 has improved, and she even keeps him a little ahead of the class. We look forward to having Tammy tutor our son next year also.

Jacque, 63 lessons with Tammy
