About Ruth

As a licensed math teacher with more than 16 years of classroom teaching experience in secondary schools, I bring a great blend of knowledge, compassion, and enthusiasm to online discussions with students. I have developed and taught math curriculum in all courses from PreAlgebra through AP Calculus AB and BC; and I have also developed a comprehensive ACT Test Prep curriculum to help students learn strategies and test-taking skills for improving their score on this predictable test.

I bring my expertise with the subject matter and my rich experiences in working with students to every online tutoring session. My goal is to provide learning opportunities for students by offering engaging discussions and interactive demonstrations of math concepts. The tutoring sessions are not just about completing homework, but about strengthening students' understanding of concepts so they can continue to build their knowledge with confidence.

The online format is easy to use and gives you great flexibility in scheduling in the midst of busy schedules. Day, evening, and weekend hours are available; and you do not need to spend any time traveling to a common meeting location or having to welcome a tutor into your home. The minimum technology requirements are a computer and an internet connection. We work on a common whiteboard space in real-time; and we share documents such as homework, test review, and extra examples.

I offer a free demo so you can see how the online interaction works in order to determine if it is a good fit for you! And, with every paid one-hour session online, you receive follow up e-mail support if needed in completing questions and problems that support the concepts we discussed during the session time.

My students know me as a patient, caring, encouraging, and inspiring teacher; and because of this, I have developed a longstanding, positive rapport with students. I am confident you will be pleased with the tutoring services I provide.

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.

Calculus

Over 85% of my students in AP Calculus (both AB and BC) have scored a 4 or 5 on the AP Calculus exam. I teach for understanding of the concepts rather than teaching to the test; and thus my students are armed with an understanding of the content and the connections between Calculus concepts by the end of the course.

MTLE

As a classroom teacher for over 16 years, I have developed and taught all math curriculum from Math Foundations and PreAlgebra up to and including AP Calculus. My teaching philosophy is to help students build connections between concepts so that the math they study is not separate procedures. Discussions are built upon a student's current level of understanding, which is guided by the questions they ask and the actual problems on which they have difficulty. There is a constant dialogue between students and myself of question, explain, reason, and making connections between concepts. This allows each tutoring session to be tailored to an individual student's current level of understanding, with the goal to accelerate their learning from that point.

Precalculus

Testimonials from my students include the following from a high school senior in Precalculus: "Ms. K was able to simplify the most complicated of problems. She could break up problems into multiple parts and then bring all the parts of the problem back together to get a final answer. She relayed the information in such a simple way for us to learn it that it was like we were not in a very complicated math class."
