After eight years teaching in my local public and private schools, I grew frustrated with the school systems and decided to leave teaching in early 2020. Over the past year, I have been focusing on tutoring exclusively, and I absolutely love it!

What I love most about tutoring is working with students one-to-one so that I can help with exactly what each student needs. I am able to diagnose possible problem areas quickly, think of ways to help fix misconceptions and patch any holes in student learning. Students can make major gains in one tutoring session that just aren't possible in the classroom.

My students find me to be patient, supportive, and empathetic. As a parent of teenagers, I understand what a stressful and challenging time it can be. I specialize in helping students become more confident in their math skills. I truly believe that anyone can be a good math learner with determination and practice!

I have a Masters of Education from Slippery Rock University and a Bachelor of Science in Economics (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Pittsburgh. I came close to earning a second B.S. in Mathematics, completing 36 credits in math and statistics courses. I hold permanent teaching certification in Pennsylvania in Mathematics, and I have benefited from many professional development programs that have helped me improve my skills, including 10 days of the NMSI Laying the Foundation training which prepares students for success in the AP Calculus course.

I am comfortable with all levels of middle and high school math, and I have classroom experience with almost every course from 6th grade general math to AP Calculus BC. I consider myself an AP Calculus specialist but I enjoy helping with math courses at every level.

Please contact me to schedule your first tutoring session. I look forward to meeting with you!

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor.

Kerri is amazing. She not only has helped my daughter increase her confidence in AP Calculus but she has also helped with learning key subject fundamentals which continue to drive her toward success in her class.

Kim, 11 lessons with Kerri

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor.

Kerri knows the topics very well . We are happy with the first tutoring session, and will stay with her on the course subject.

Sheryl, 5 lessons with Kerri

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My 16yr son exited his first session with Kerri and remarked that she was great! Very patient with him, as he was not prepared, and helped him reorganize himself after the summer break. He’s looking forward to working with her throughout the year and now feels mentally ready, refreshed and reorganized!

Josette, 6 lessons with Kerri

Knowledgeable and caring tutor

I found Ms. Patterson randomly online to tutor my son AP Calculus BC. I decided to try her because she was a high school math teacher and her rate is reasonable. After the first lesson, my son and I felt we were lucky to find such a great teacher. Since then, my son had about 30 hours of lessons from her during summer. She is very familiar with the curriculum and she made good use of time by covering as much as she could as she cared about my son’s progress. She is responsible, punctual, motivated, diligent, accommodating, and patient….There are not enough good words to express how happy I am having her as my son’s tutor.

Hong, 14 lessons with Kerri

Very flexible, knowledgeable and patient tutor by all means

Kerri helped by daughter with Physics on 11th grade. She was struggling initially, but thanks to Kerri's patience and warm engagement she got thru. Her patience with my daughter was remarkable as well as her flexibility to accommodate schedule changes and increased rate at times. Kerri - Thanks a lot for your help!

Moshe, 31 lessons with Kerri

Terrific experience

Kerri was absolutely wonderful and helped my daughter to her best semester yet in high school. She had two semesters with A’s and gained incredible confidence in her abilities. Kerri was also very accommodating in finding time at the last minute when those surprise tests were announced and the material was not completely clear. Highly recommended!

Jordan, 13 lessons with Kerri

Great math tutor!

My daughter has been taking lessons once a week with Kerri for months now. She has helped my girl become more confident and helped her understand many of the concepts she’s struggled with in the past. Highly recommend her!

Julie, 40 lessons with Kerri

Really insightful and well prepared for lesson

Kerri asked for information ahead of time so that she could be best prepared for the lesson - which was very helpful and she brought additional resources forward for additional practice and studying.

Cindy, 9 lessons with Kerri

excellent tutor

A++++++ Our son really looks forward to his tutoring sessions. Very much worth it. The online format is excellent and Kerri is great on scheduling sessions that work with our son’s class schedule.
