About Tami

Math has always been my strongest subject. During high school I became a peer tutor, and then in college I got a degree in math education. I taught in public schools for several years, before deciding that I love working one-on-one best. I have been a private tutor ever since.

My experience as a private tutor includes several years working for Kaplan Test Prep as an SAT/ACT tutor, and over ten years with Tutor.com as an online tutor in most areas of math. I also spent several years as a mentor to other tutors at Tutor.com. I home-school my own children, and have experience teaching children of all ages.

In public schools I taught everything from Math 7 through Trigonometry. As a tutor I have taught everything from first grade math through Pre-Calculus. I have yet to meet a student I couldn't help! My strength lies in knowing multiple approaches to most types of problems, and helping students find the best way for them to understand how to find the answers.

If you need help, please contact me. I look forward to working with you!
