She helped our son prepare for a test and made sure he understood the concepts before moving on. He felt more confident with the material after, which is exactly what he wanted.

Thank you for the positive feedback. It was a pleasure working with you son.

Nicole spent the entire time tutoring my child in pre-calculus. I was very pleased with her.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Studying for a standardized test can really pull you ahead of the crowd. I would love to help you reach your goals. I think that it is important to play to your strengths. The first thing we would need to figure out what type of learning you are and how you best remember information. Once we know that, we can work with those skills to exploit your best possible score as we reinforce your foundation in the tested topics.

I have taught Algebra I in Massachusetts, Texas and Pennsylvania. I have seen this course change as I moved but also I have seen this course go through some fundamental changes as the Common Core standards were adopted and state testing became the norm. I know what the state tests are looking for, but I also see why they created the Common Core. It was created to provide more time to dedicate to each topic so there can be an exploration of the beauty of mathematics instead of the memorization of facts.

Algebra 2 is such a great course. Once you have the basics of the Algebra 1 under your belt you can really explore the more stimulating concepts of high school Algebra. I have tutored and taught Algebra 2 on many occasions over the last 12 years. It was one of the first subjects I started tutoring while I was in high school.

My first experience in a class was a volunteer in public school pre-K classroom in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. I fell in love with teaching there. Later I was a co-teacher for the summer program for this public pre-K. It was amazing and inspiring to see the growth of these young people every day. In 2008-2009 I was a tutor for a group elementary school students. We would meet once a week and sit around a big table and I would help with with any topics that they needed. It was one of my favorite tutoring experiences. I was also a tutor and teacher for K-3 math in 2010 at the Nepalese Society of Texas for their Saturday school. I really enjoyed working with these students.

I have taught or tutored almost every level of mathematics from Pre-K with special needs to college. I am comfortable with the entire spectrum of math concepts and I can help you child where they are show them the next level up so they are ahead and feeling confident.

I have a lot of fun with technology. I am always the first one to try out some new classroom technology to see if it is helpful. I am known as the "tech teacher" at any school I go to. I also worked for a company for two years where I helped teachers install and use software and hardware so I have experience teaching and training people to use computers and technology.

I have been a high school teacher for ten years. I have taught in three different states and I am certified in each of those states. I have classroom experience teaching PreAlgebra, Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus and Trigonometry.

I also have experience at a Fortune 500 company on the sales team. I spent time as an internal and external trainer and inside sales. In order to do my job I had to be adept at Microsoft PowerPoint and Word.

Microsoft Word is the industry standard for word processing. It can be intimidating and you can start to feel like everyone else working around you is very comfortable with this tool while you are struggling. I have used this program quite a bit as a teacher and in the private sector while I worked for a Fortune 500 company. I understand what it feels like to be "left behind" while everyone is using a new technology tool. I would love to help you feel more confident. As a side note, I am certified in PA to teach business technology, including Microsoft Word.

Prealgebra is where things start to get fun. I taught this class right out of the gate in my first three years. I was so lucky that the school I was at allowed me to make this a more hands-on and interactive course that integrated some new technology and I really loved teaching it. This course is so important to get a good footing on pattern recognition and the use of symbols and the language of Algebra. If you can feel confident here then the rest of your math education will feel so much more satisfying. I would love to help you get there!

Precalculus is one of my favorite topics to teach. I was just teaching this in PA last year and the material is so detailed that you can really get a sense of what higher level math classes have to offer.

When I took the SATs I remember having a great time on the math section. The way that they ask questions is different from other math tests. There always seems to be two methods to approach every questions. One method has you calculating through to the right answer, but the other method has you recognize a pattern or theorem that you can quickly apply and move on with confidence. Seeing through the questions to what they are trying to test is key and can take the anxiety of this test down.

Trigonometry if often bundled into the Precalc course now, but I have experience teaching both. I have taught this subject in MA and PA. It can feel like it is very rule-based with a lot of memorization, but I would love to show you the dynamic nature of the unit circle that underlays all those relationships.
