If you feel like your math teacher teaches a little too quickly, you understand the material in class but not when you get home, or you just need a little extra help to make sure you fully grasp the material, I am more than happy to help you.
I was a struggling math student before I had an excellent tutor who re-explained concepts until I understood them fully. I want to provide this ease of understanding for students, for a I believe a huge portion of math is confidence.
I graduated from the University of Virginia with a Neuroscience degree and began the Teach For America program soon afterwards in Nashville. I have taught at public high schools and public middle schools, as well as a charter school.
I believe it is impossible for a kid to be permanently "bad at math." I have helped dozens of students turn this notion around, or even students looking to go from good to great.
I have taught the following courses:
8th Grade Math, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Integrated Math 1.
I am very familiar with all the standards and the foundational skills needed to grasp the concepts, not just the skills. I know good teaching isn't providing endless practice problems, but allowing kids to come to their own understanding. This strategy promotes retention which leads to mathematical confidence.
I currently teach 8th Grade and Integrated Math until 4:30 every weekday, so tutoring would have to be after those hours. I am also available on Saturdays and Sundays. I have night classes on Tuesdays so that day would not work for me.
Feel free to reach out so we can discuss a time that works best. I look forward to it!

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.
