About Madelyn

I have been tutoring for a total of about 5 years, cumulatively. I love teaching one on one and creating individualized approaches to explain and work through concepts in a way that is effective for each particular student. I love the excitement of solving new problems with each meeting and I love being a part of each student's improvement and success. I have tutored students from elementary school to college and every age in between. I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Business. I also spent my undergraduate career studying music and math, for fun. I am now a mom of two little girls and love the opportunity that tutoring gives me to meet people and help students succeed. Whether you need a little help with one lesson, or continuous support all year, I'm available to help!

I specialize in math, English, psychology, business, and test prep. I tailor my lessons to suit each student and will work with you to become confident in your understanding of the subject matter. I have held myself to a high standard for my entire academic career, and will do the same for your student. My goal is to get them to the point where they can succeed on their own. I will not do their work for them or spoon feed answers because it will not help them succeed in the long run. I also prefer to tutor in a public place (libraries, bookstores and coffee shops work best).

I require 24 hours notice for cancellation or rescheduling, but I try to remain flexible. For lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours but more than 8 hours notice, a cancellation fee of 25% will be assessed. For lessons cancelled with less than 8 hours notice, a cancellation fee of 50% will be assessed. If you have not arrived within 15 minutes of our scheduled lesson, it will be considered a "no show" and a fee of 50% will be assessed. I also require the students to bring their textbooks, workbooks and any additional coursework to each lesson to have all of the resources possible to help them.

I am a great tutor because I love to use creative and unique ways that are tailored to the student that I am working with. I have a solid understanding of the subjects listed and therefore can explain and work through problems in a creative, fun way!

I'm excited to hear from you and can't wait to schedule our first lesson!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have a solid math education including successfully passing AP Calculus in high school and taking various math courses such as Calculus, Statistics, Accounting and Finance while pursuing my bachelors degree. I have tutored math for students of all ages from 2nd grade to college over the past 12 years and have seen improvements in my students' confidence and ability after only a few sessions. I have had positive feedback from all of my clients and I know I can help your student. I can think outside the box and explain these concepts in new and interesting ways to keep your student motivated. Algebra 1 is an important math foundation which will be used not only in higher level math courses, but throughout your student's life.

Elementary Math

Elementary school is where we learn the foundations of math that we then build on for the rest of our academic career and ultimately use for the rest of our lives. I have experience tutoring children grades 2-6 in elementary math and can help you, too. I believe that anyone can conquer an obstacle in math. Whether you are a "numbers person" or not, I can teach you in a way that you will understand to absorb the information, not memorize. This will give you the confidence you need to succeed in math.

Geometry

I have tutored math for students of all ages from 2nd grade to college over the past 12 years and have seen improvements in my students' confidence and ability after only a few sessions. Geometry is the first math class that created a confidence and love of math for me and I can help create that in your student, as well.
