About Moira


Bio

Hello,

I have always enjoyed helping others with math ever since I was in sixth grade. My classmates always did better than I did after I explained how to do a problem.

It wasn't until the last five years of my professional career that I became a professional tutor in a small college in upstate New York. I loved every minute of tutoring I did there. As in all the colleges, there students with varied abilities that came for help; some very bright, some average, and some with learning...

Hello,

I have always enjoyed helping others with math ever since I was in sixth grade. My classmates always did better than I did after I explained how to do a problem.

It wasn't until the last five years of my professional career that I became a professional tutor in a small college in upstate New York. I loved every minute of tutoring I did there. As in all the colleges, there students with varied abilities that came for help; some very bright, some average, and some with learning disabilities. I was able to quickly determine the learning style of each student (visual, auditory, tactile) and would use that knowledge to optimize the learning process.

I have a lot of patience and am calm so students quickly feel at ease with me. Add that to my extensive background and you have a winning combination.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree from Stevens Institute of Technology which has a very rigorous math requirement. I have also tutored algebra for six years at the community college level and have always enjoyed my experience with every student. I can provide references if needed. I dealt with young students and students that were sixty years old. I have experienced and dealt with a wide variety of student abilities; students with learning disabilities to strong math students.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a challenging course for students, but I have a lot of experience with tutoring that subject. I tutored this course for ten semesters at the college level. I have also helped my two daughters through this course and they both have A's in the class. I have been successful in breaking down the material for the students so that they truly understand the steps (there are sometimes a lot of steps in these problems) not just memorize the steps. I love to see the smiles on the students' faces when they understand and 'get it' which almost always happens!!

Great Tutor!

Moira has been helping me with college level math. Our sessions have been extremely helpful and she manages to tutor in a manner so that I stay can engaged for 2 hours straight. Thanks Moira!

Luke, 24 lessons with Moira

Very reliable

Moira was very accessible and came at the appointed time. She seems to have a great grasp of Algebra 2 and we will see how our son does after his next exam. She is very pleasant and professional.
