About Marti

Permanently certified to teach secondary math in Pa., for the most recent 11 years teaching I taught and tutored Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Remedial Algebra and SAT preparation for the Kimberton Waldorf School and for private clients.

My private clients have included more than 50 students. What I do best as a tutor is establish a positive rapport, discover what is easy and difficult for the student, and work with the individual's learning style in order to join him or her in the learning process. Patience and enthusiasm are at the core of my practice.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra I for at least 14 years. I have also tutored approximately 20 students in Algebra I. My experience also includes both teaching and tutoring Remedial Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

As a former middle school math teacher, I am permanently certified to teach secondary math in PA. The last 11 years I have taught Algebra II.

Prealgebra

Over the years I have tutored many who start to struggle with math as it becomes abstract. Permanently certified to teach secondary math in Pa., my first position on graduating from college was as a middle school math teacher. For the most recent 11 years I have taught and tutored Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Remedial Algebra and SAT preparation for the Kimberton Waldorf School and for private clients. My private clients have included about 50 students.

What I do best as a tutor is establish a positive rapport, discover what is easy and difficult for the student, and work with the individual's learning style in order to join him or her in the learning process. Patience and enthusiasm are at the core of my practice. I particularly enjoy working with middle and high school students. (Although I have taught a couple of college students.) I come to a tutoring session prepared to engage with my student, often with a newly purchased copy of the student's text (my cost).

SAT Math

Permanently certified to teach secondary math in Pennsylvania, my first position upon graduating from college was as a middle school math teacher. For the last 11 years I have taught and tutored Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Remedial Algebra and SAT preparation for the Kimberton Waldorf School and for private clients. My private clients have included about 50 students.
