"I HATE MATH!!" - How many times have you heard your student say that particular phrase, or some variation of it, anyway?
As a Middle and High School math teacher and tutor with over 10 years of experience, I have had the privilege and pleasure to help hundreds of students achieve their mathematical potential, frequently helping them overcome math blocks and general apathy (or even disdain) towards math as a subject. I have also worked with many high-achieving Math-loving students to help them maintain exceptional grades in Advanced Math classes.
As a tutor, nothing is more gratifying that that "lightbulb moment" when the student suddenly grasps a concept that they have previously struggled with. And this moment is much more easily attained working one-on-one with a student than in a 20+ student classroom setting.
I believe in a whole-student approach to mathematics success. As a result, I work hard to develop a strong rapport with my parents and students which is invaluable in helping students to achieve their academic goals. If a student doesn't trust their teacher/tutor, they won't listen to a word they say.
Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I look forward to getting to know you and your student and helping him or her to achieve success. "I HATE MATH!!" - How many times have you heard your student say that particular phrase, or some variation of it, anyway?

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.
