Having struggled with math as an elementary student, I only realized my love for math in middle school. This was reinforced as I progressed with my education. My own struggles with math have helped me to understand to some extent the needs of the students with whom I now work. I desire to help students eliminate the fear and dread sometimes associated with the subject.

I have a BA in Mathematics and have taught in the classroom at community colleges in both Michigan and Tennessee. These courses were geared toward student who were not prepared to enter college level math instruction. Some are/were just out of high school, while others are/were returning to school after being in the workforce or after an extended time. Sometimes these courses were lecture style and other times they have been more individualized to the student's pace. I have one-on-one experience from working in a facility that provided after-school tutoring, test prep, home-school support as well various psychological and behavioral testing. I used various traditional methods and also used flipped learning. I have also done private tutoring for students both in their homes and in other locations.

I have experience with students of all ages. Even adults can limit themselves by fears which they developed in their younger days. I see this on a daily basis as I work with adults who have returned to college to enhance their careers but need to take developmental courses to get them prepared for college level coursework. Young children to high school age benefit from one-on-one instruction to support them as they work through math concepts. My experience spans all these categories including students with learning disabilities and some with special needs. I am excited to see students succeed.

I have been teaching math in some form for over twenty years. I have home schooled seven children from preschool age. Four of them have graduated high school and are currently in college. A fifth will graduate high school this year. I have worked one on one with other home school students of varying ages whose parents needed assistance with math instruction for various reasons. I thoroughly enjoy working with math, and I love to see the "light bulb" come on when a student finally "gets it." Be it Elementary/Middle school math, Algebra 1 or 2, Geometry, or Pre-calculus, let me help make sense of it with you.

I would love to hear from you if you or your student needs help with various math concepts.

Excellent first session!

Lorrie was an excellent partner to us in assessing where our student needed help, and then patiently explaining and demonstrating solutions to specific homework problems. Building up math confidence is a process, but I feel like after just one session, we are already well on our way to having a confident math student.

Knowledgable and Patient

Lorraine has been wonderful with my son. She is patient and knowledgeable with algebra 2, identified gaps, and my son's study methods have improved as well as his grades. We are in the process of making consistent appointments with her every week.
