I love mathematics, and I love helping students learn mathematics! I was homeschooled through high school and did not like math at all! My first college math class was wonderful - everything clicked, and I ended up changing my major to math. I graduated summa cum laude from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I have been tutoring students for over 25 years.
I try to follow the student's goals and learning style as much as possible. Some students just want help with a few difficult problems. Some students want to place into college-level math on the COMPASS exam. Other students need extra support getting through a high-school or college math course. The student's goal becomes my goal as a tutor. If a student takes in information best by audio/visual, then I will do lecturing and explaining with a whiteboard. If they need to do the work themselves, I will "stand back" more and ask leading questions, helping a student find their own way.
A typical session lasts approximately an hour. Homework is assigned and graded by me if the student is learning independently. If the student is getting extra help through a class, homework their instructor has assigned will be used in sessions and between sessions for practice.
I tutor entirely online. I will travel within my travel radius to meet a student for an initial consultation if they would like to meet me in person, after which we conduct online sessions. An initial consultation is free.
After having been homeschooled myself and then homeschooling my own daughter through high school, I have a passion for helping homeschool students! I love working with any high school through adult students, but homeschoolers are extra special to me. I have experienced the frustration of not understanding mathematics, of knowing what it is like to be completely lost in a class. I know how difficult it can be to learn math on your own, since I've done it myself. I have tremendous empathy for those who have math anxiety or feel like they can't learn math.
I would love to work with you to help you with whatever your math goal happens to be!
