About Monica

Whether you need one-time or long-term help grasping math concepts and mastering them, I am the tutor for you. I love helping students not just overcome their math phobias but find math success! I have accelerated a few through Algebra and Geometry. More and more, I have been integrating online math tools for skill-building and maintenance.

I love helping others turn their weaknesses into strengths and reach their academic goals. Along with 90+ credits from Purdue, I have over 15 years of successful tutoring experience. More importantly, I have a knack for meeting the specific and sometimes quirky needs of individual students. I have taught many who were gifted, had learning disabilities, suffered chronic illness, had lived abroad, were in college, were preparing for SAT, ACT or GRE, and also taught math and English classes.

I home-schooled my own children to college and, as the surviving spouse of a career military veteran, I have a keen interest in helping military and single-parent families.

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

Many students either love Algebra and hate Geometry, or vice versa. I just happen to love them both. They're both foundational for logically decoding systems for life. I have tutored Algebra for 15 years and still love seeing the twinkle in the eye of my students when they use the tools I share with them to consistently and logically work their way through Algebra and beyond.

Geometry

My high school Geometry teacher told my mother that I should be a Geometry teacher, and sure enough I taught a Geometry class successfully for two years to high school homeschoolers. It's my favorite course to tutor and all of my students find success after tutoring with me. I think my students just can't help but catch my love for Geometry. I have helped a student turn his Geometry grade around from a 64 to a 92!

Prealgebra

Mastering Pre-Algebra is foundational to a successful Algebra year, and I like helping students prepare for what's coming. My Pre-Algebra tutoring students typically go into Algebra with confidence and success. I taught a junior high Pre-Algebra course for only one year, and homeschool parents who heard from my students asked that I teach again the following year.
