I am a lifelong resident of Easton and currently only tutor out of my home so that I can accommodate the most amount of students. I have my masters degree and have taught high school math in public & private schools since 2000. I currently home school my youngest child & tutor only at my home so that I can see more students. I have current clearances. We have a timid greyhound dog but the dining room we will tutor in have fully open glass doors so the dog cannot come in. Parents can either go on errands at many nearby stores or relax in my living room.
The true success of the tutoring is in the hands of your student. Students who are not interested in getting help will not gain much. I will try my best to motivate them. Because of the few spots I have for new students, I am interested in those who are going to really TRY their best. Students can show me that they are interested by trying problems and showing me their work so that I can see for myself what step they are struggling with.
If you are not happy for ANY reason at all with our tutoring session, PLEASE just let me know directly and I will not charge you for the session. I feel that I am a straight forward, step by step instructor. I really do understand why many people struggle with math and try to explain things in several different ways. Building a strong math foundation is important. Understanding math is very similar to learning an instrument or a different language. With practice, you will eventually get it, IF you do not give up. The higher math you have, the more options & opportunities you will have.
Please contact me today so that we can get started as soon as possible. We can accomplish a lot in 1 hour!
Tina hasn’t set a schedule.
Tina is a knowledgeable, patient and accommodating teacher. She is very approachable even between sessions. When my daughter had a problem in between , Tina responded immediately and showed a step by step solution to the problem. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor.Lisa, 28 lessons with Tina
My son loved Tina, she was very nice and worked great with him. She was very honest with us about Trig identities and suggested if we could find another tutor to help my son in more detail to please do. She helped him get passed his homework last night so that alone is great. Thank you for going above and beyond what you needed to do and was still sending information the next day. I would highly suggest her as a tutor. Thank you, Tina!!!Cristie, 1 lesson with Tina
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Tina is a super tutor. My 16-year-old son really benefited from his sessions with her. Great communication and flexibility for tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend Tina as a tutor.Sara, 2 lessons with Tina
Highly Recommend Tina!
Tina helped an incredible amount with my summer college algebra class at Northampton. I have failed at math my whole life and struggled more than I'd like to admit and have been out of college for 6 years so I was completely rusty but Tina explained everything to me in way that made me understand more clearly and sat with me until I understood. She spent 3 hours with me one day just so I could get all my online assignments done! She was more than willing to fit me in to her schedule whenever she could and even let me borrow her calculator for my class. She always answered my texts right away and was just a huge help in getting me an A. I would never ever have been able to do it without her and I am so thankful to her for helping me get through that class. If you need help in any math class she is your girl. I 100% recommend her. THANK YOU TINA!!Amanda, 9 lessons with Tina
Many thanks to Tina!
Tina tutored my son in preparation for the math section of the ACTs. Tina is a kind and patient teacher. My son felt comfortable working with her immediately. She helped build his confidence and strength his skills. Tina is so flexible about scheduling appointments. I only wish we met her years ago!Terri, 9 lessons with Tina
Knowledgable, patient and kind
We have tried several tutors over the years. The first session my daughter had with Tina was a huge success!! Tina's approach on how to determine my daughter's strengths and weaknesses and how to teach her were spot on. After her first session, my daughter said Tina was "amazing!!" It was music to my ears. We look forward to having our daughter's understanding of algebraic concepts flourish under Tina's guidance.Alison, 21 lessons with Tina
Informative and Knowledgeable Tutor
My son was happy to gain practical test taking skills needed for the ACT Math section and fundamental functions/formulas needed to excel and improve his score. He is happy to be able continue more sessions with Tina. Thank you.Susan, 9 lessons with Tina
Excellent, knowledgeable, patient tutor
Tina is working with my twin sons for SAT math prep. From the very first lesson they felt they learned something immediately, and have gained confidence with the second lesson because she explains everything patiently and clearly. They are enthusiastic about the tutoring because they see it making a difference and actually said they are "excited" about taking the SATs because they feel like they will do well!Susan, 16 lessons with Tina
Increased Math ACT from 20 to 26...thanks Tina!!!
Our daughter is an 11th grader and hasn't had Algebra I since 8th grade and Honors Geometry since 9th grade and so she needed a tutor to review some of the concepts again prior to taking her College ACT Board Exams. Tina provided our daughter approx 6 lessons over 2 months and mad a MAJOR difference fo our daughter. Initially, she had 2 sessions with Tina prior to her first ACT exam and she scored very low in Math with just a 20. Her composite score on that Exam was a 25 so Math was dragging her Overall Composite score down significantly. However, we continued with 4 more tutoring seesions with Tina prior to her 2nd ACT sitting and it paid off in a big way. Our daughter increased her ACT Math score from a 20 the first time to a 26 the 2nd time!!! Tina made some key suggestions after her 1st ACT test, identified need areas, and focused in on those need areas. The strategy worked! Without Tina's guidance our daughter would not have made that type of improvement which has now opened up MANY more merit scholarship opportunities for our daughter. Tina is patient, responsible, professional, able to relate to kids, and is priced appropriately for the level of service she provides. I would not hesitate to recommend Tina for Math tutoring. My daughter's academic profile: 3.97 UW GPA, Top 5% of her class, many Honors courses and a few AP/DE courses.Brian, 7 lessons with Tina
Very helpful and made me feel comfortable
She gave me a clearer understanding of my algebra skills and is very friendly. Looking forward to tutoring with her again.Matthew, 12 lessons with Tina
