About Betty Ann

I have a love of Math that is contagious and want to help you enjoy it too! Tutoring is very rewarding; I love when "the lightbulb goes on" and the student understands the material. I have helped many students with IEP's and struggling students as well as students who want to get ahead. I'm the teacher who can help adults and children understand math more easily. I will show you tricks, strategies and play games to reinforce skills.

I am currently a math specialist with over 23 years of experience teaching and tutoring. I have my Master's in Math Education, Highly Qualified in Language Arts and familiar with the Common Core and NEW SAT. I have tutored students from elementary school level to preparing students for the Accuplacer/SAT/ACT college entrance test. I have had the pleasure of helping many students and adults realize their own potential and see their scores and confidence improve!

One of my goals for each session is to keep the you challenged, but not overwhelmed. I will assign homework each lesson or help with your college class assignments. Periodic assessments will be given with feedback on how to solve problems successfully.

Look no further, I am the caring math tutor with a sense of humor and mad math skills you have been looking for. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies by working together.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored SAT/ACT Math prep for over 12 years. All the math they have ever been taught in school is suddenly on a test that may affect the college they desperately want to attend and students tend to shut down with all this pressure.

Math suddenly seems like a foreign language; I will teach your child in a language that they can understand. Not only will I teach you content but I will teach you test taking strategies. After working with me they will feel more successful in taking the test.

I will break down the material and teach them test taking strategies to improve their score. Students typically see a significant rise in their score!

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored algebra for over 20 years. I love Algebra, it is the foundation of all Math. It can be a difficult concept, because suddenly the alphabet is along side numbers and students tend to shut down. Math seems like a foreign language, but I will teach you in a language you can understand.

I will teach you tricks and strategies to help you understand concepts! After working with me you will feel more successful in the classroom and your grades will improve after just a couple weeks!

Algebra 2

I have tutored numerous students in Algebra 2 and have helped them see their grade increase. Algebra 2 focuses on advanced mathematical operations, such as those pertaining to complex numbers, factorization, linear systems, matrices and elementary functions, which comprise the essential knowledge base for trigonometry and pre-calculus. Often times, students struggle because they lack the essential foundational knowledge or skills to work through the problems with speed and fluency. When teaching Algebra 2, I first focus on instilling proper technique and effective problem-solving habits that are not always covered thoroughly in standard high school courses.

Algebra is my favorite subject to tutor, it is the foundation of math courses.

Common Core

I am a public school teacher and very familiar with the New Common Core and PARCC test as it relates to students. Concepts are not taught in the way that parents were taught. Students are taught to use mathematical reasoning and number sense when figuring out a math problem.

I will teach your child in a way that they will feel more successful in the classroom.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Early Intervention Specialist in an Elementary School. I have taught both the advanced learner and the learner that needs extra assistance. I teach in a language which they can understand stand. I have many tricks up my sleeve.

I bring materials geared towards your child's need to help them feel successful in the classroom.

Geometry

I am a Math Specialist Certified in K-12. I have tutored many high school students in Geometry.

Geometry is very different from Algebra, sometimes students that are good in Algebra have trouble in Geometry. I will teach them tricks to help remember different concepts.

Your child will feel more successful in the classroom after just a couple sessions.

Handwriting

I am Elementary Certified Teacher who has taught at all levels. It is important for students to be able to write in both print and cursive. On a daily basis, I help students improve their handwriting successfully. Let me help your child improve your students handwriting.

ISEE

I taught a private program in ISEE/SSAT Math for eight years prior to becoming Dean of the program then overseeing the entire ISEE/SSAT preparation for both Math and Language Arts.

In addition, I have tutored students in ISEE/SSAT Math for several years to help them increase their scores.

I know how to dissect an ISEE/SSAT Math question and will teach strategies to eliminate answers.

Praxis

As an educator who scored the Praxis for years for ETS I know what they are looking for in their responses. I can give advise on classroom management, pedagogy, and other useful info.

I've also tutored adults in preparation for the mathematics section of the test as Math is my specialty.

Prealgebra

I am certified in Mathematics from Elementary to High School, I taught in Middle School for over 2 years!

I have taught and tutored all levels of pre-algebra and can teach your child tricks and strategies to help them understand.

I bring materials with me to help make pre-algebra easier.

PSAT

I have tutored PSAT prep for over 12 years. All the math they have ever been taught in school is suddenly on a test that may affect the college they desperately want to attend and students tend to shut down with all this pressure.

Math suddenly seems like a foreign language; I will teach your child in a language that they can understand. After working with me they will feel more successful in taking the test.

In addition, I have tutored students in SSAT Math for several years to help them increase their scores.

I know how to dissect an SSAT Math question and will teach strategies to eliminate answers.

Study Skills

Study skills is important for students to succeed in school. Sometimes, it is a matter of time management, other times it is organizational techniques. Whatever the issue, I can help. It is also important to understand a particular student's learning style. When studying for my teaching certification, I took a class on learning styles in college and found that no two students are alike, and what works for one will not necessarily work for others. For study skills, organization, time management, and an understanding of how the student learns are the most important pieces. I will work with the student to create a learning and study plan that will meet his or her individual needs.
