About Judy

I taught AP Calculus at a private high school designated by the College Board in 2006 as #1 in the world for Advanced Placement scores. I sponsored JETS (Junior Engineering Technical Society) teams that placed #1 in California and #1 in the nation in engineering competitions. In a recommendation, the department chair stated, "I could always tell which of my students had Judy the previous year. They were generally the students who were the more independent learners and who were, without a doubt, well prepared. . . What makes Judy a terrific teacher and tutor is her approach to students and her caring. Judy can make something mundane seem fun."

I also spent 15 years writing and managing software for satellite mission control. I was nominated by Rockwell as subcontract manager of the year and was treated to a VIP viewing of a shuttle launch. My combination of academic and industrial experience makes me uniquely qualified to bring real-world applications to math and physics education. I am well acquainted with current teaching texts and methods, including the use of calculators and computers for computation, graphing, analysis, and exploration.

I volunteer at a Youth Counseling Center in Pittsburgh. The program manager wrote of me, "She's one of those exceptional teachers who can explain concepts in ways that even the most math-challenged students are able to comprehend." In the classroom and in tutoring I have taught all high school math subjects, as well as physics and computer science. Every student thinks and learns in individual ways. My greatest success in working with students is when I can help them identify approaches that will bring them success and self-confidence.

Excellent Math Tutor — Judy explains the material very well and my son is really starting to understand the concepts. His grade in Advanced Calculus is improving and I am very pleased with his progress after only a few tutoring sessions. She has a strong background in Calculus and has taught it for many years. Judy is an excellent tutor who is both friendly and reliable. I would highly recommend her! ...
