I am hopeful I will make your learning both satisfying as well as fun! I am a certified teacher in Pennsylvania and Texas. I also have two masters degrees from Wilkes University. One is in technology and the other is in leadership. I have taught middle school math and science for more than 20 years. I understand the mindset of this level of student. I have also tutored students in algebra and geometry. Having served as my school district's math specialist, I am familiar with the requirements needed to be successful on standardized tests. In addition, I have done extensive private tutoring and enjoy the satisfaction gained when my student "gets it!" My tutoring has usually been done face-to-face, but I have also been very successful using technology such as face-time and text messaging to help my students understand. I am looking forward to this opportunity to help you, my future student.
My ability to listen and desire to understand you and where you might be “stuck,” make me an outstanding math tutor. I have extensive experiences in techniques that work and am willing to try various approaches to suit your needs. I will start with the basics and from where you are solid in your understanding while also addressing your immediate learning needs.
I have successfully tutored students who have been enrolled in cyber-school programs. I am willing to go above and beyond for my students.
Please contact me to see if I am a good fit for you or your child. Parental contact is requested before I work with your child.

Knowledgeable and Patient
Pam S. is an absolute Blessing to our family. My husband and I were going bonkers trying to help our nine-year-old with his Math and Reading. She has been meeting with him for about three months and he is doing so much better. He looks forward to their sessions. She is dependable, patient and very knowledgeable of what is expected with the Common Core Standards. She is getting ready to start tutoring our 11-year-old too. We have found a jewel.Vanessa, 40 lessons with Pam
Caring & Patient tutor
Pam has been working with my son who is struggling with eighth grade math. He enjoys working with Pam and says that she explains everything thoroughly... he is being taught in class by the teacher who shows a video rather than teach the students which is not a good fit for him. Pam has been very accommodating when it comes to finding time for tutor sessions... I highly recommend Pam!Cathy, 1 lesson with Pam
She's Awesome !!!
Pam is amazing, patient and fun! My son loves that she makes learning fun and loves working with her. 5th grade math has been a challenge for us but Pam has made it easier to understand and complete. She's very passionate and its obvious that she loves to help children reach their fullest potential, she is much appreciated.Chad, 4 lessons with Pam
Pam was amazing from start to finish. She asked us for pics of my son’s review sheets before the session so she would be prepared to help him for his exam. She connected immediately with my son and helped work through review problems. She has such a positive attitude and a lot of patience. My son felt very comfortable and enjoyed working with her. She then followed up after the lesson to see how he did - so thoughtful!!Chet, 3 lessons with Pam
Pam is THE. BEST!!
My daughter needed tutoring because she was failing every math test and quiz at school. Coming home with F’s every week and feeling very discouraged. So she started tutoring with Pam about a month ago, and she is already getting high B’s on her tests and quizzes now, plus she has a confidence with math that I have never seen before!! She finally understands the concepts and Pam is so encouraging and explains things so well to her. We are so grateful to have found Pam, and I highly recommend her!!Hannah, 13 lessons with Pam

Great interaction with my 6 year old.
She is absolutely wonderful..I would highly recommend her. She spent time to get to know me and my son. She asked lots of questions and provided ideas for next steps.Amber, 28 lessons with Pam
Her years of experience truly show!
We’ve had a few lessons with Pam so far and have loved every minute. My seven-year-old daughter struggles some days more than others with focus and drive. Pam meets my child at her level, where she is at in that moment emotionally. One lesson was particularly difficult because my daughter was not cooperating and didn’t want to sit through the lesson. Pam saw that struggle and encouraged her, worked with her through that and by the end of the lesson, my daughter was focused and engaged. She has a way with kids, that’s is very clear. She wants the kids to love learning first and then she imparts the knowledge when they can receive it!Madison, 15 lessons with Pam
So glad to have picked Ms. Pam for my daughter. She is very patient, she always asks if there is anything we would like to cover or if A is having trouble understanding anything and if so she covers it. If A has homework she doesn't understand we know we can count on Ms. Pam to help. Ms. Pam checks on progress during the week, and also sends practice work if needed. We will continue to use Ms. Pam for as long as needed.Tanya , 23 lessons with Pam
