About Pamela

Hello! I recently moved to Washington and am really excited to start tutoring in this area! For the past four years, I worked as a math tutor in New Jersey where I enjoyed helping students gain confidence and success in math.

I have a bachelor's degree in math from the University of Maine, and a master's degree in math from the University of Pittsburgh. At the University of Pittsburgh I worked as a teaching assistant, which included leading calculus class recitations and working with students in the on-campus math assistance center. My tutoring experience includes one-on-one tutoring in pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. In addition, I have helped students prepare for the math sections of tests such as the GRE and PRAXIS.

I understand that there is a difference between one-on-one tutoring and classroom instruction, and I love the freedom to really individualize my instruction for each student that I work with when I tutor. I work to meet each student at their current ability level, and to help them build an understanding of the subject so that they can begin to approach problems with confidence.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Algebra 1 often challenges student's ideas of what math is all about, and the new ways of approaching math can seem overwhelming. I have tutored many students in algebra 1 as well as college level algebra classes, and have seen my students gain confidence as they begin to understand algebraic techniques, tools, and concepts. I will focus on addressing your individual needs and will help you build a solid foundation for moving forward in your study of math.

Algebra 2

I have over five years of experience tutoring students in high school level algebra 2 classes and college algebra classes. Algebra 2 classes introduce many higher level math concepts that can throw students off at first. I know that each student is different, so I will work with you to help you build your understanding of the subject and strengthen your individual areas of weakness.

Calculus

Calculus is one of my favorite subjects to tutor, because it opens up a whole new world in math for students to explore. While I was completing my master's degree in math, I worked as a teaching assistant for all levels in the typical college-level calculus sequence (Calculus I, II, and III). Since then, I have helped students succeed in AP Calculus classes as well as college level calculus classes.

GRE

As a math tutor, I have a few years of experience successfully helping students who needed a little extra help preparing for the quantitative portion of the GRE. I have helped students brush up on their math skills and learn new skills in order to be successful on the quantitative sections of the GRE.

I am not an English tutor and I have never tutored for the verbal sections of the GRE. However, in August 2017 I retook the GRE and scored a 170 on both the quantitative and the verbal portions of the test. My writing score was 4.5. Based on my own experience taking the test, I believe that I could give you some helpful advice on how to successfully study for the verbal and writing portions of the test.

Praxis

I have a master's degree in math, and I took the Praxis II Mathematics: Content Knowledge exam in May, 2013. I received a Certificate of Excellence for my score on the exam. I have also successfully helped clients prepare to take the Praxis I or Praxis Core test in mathematics.

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra has become one of my favorite levels of math to tutor. As students begin seeing more and more algebraic concepts introduced in math class, it can be overwhelming and frustrating. I love helping students overcome these hurdles and discover new ways of thinking about math as they transition from arithmetic to algebra.

Precalculus

Precalculus classes often include a lot of trigonometry, as well as an in-depth exploration of different types of functions in order to prepare students to study calculus. Gaining a solid understanding of these concepts now will help you succeed in your studies of math in the future. I have experience tutoring in both pre-calculus and calculus, and can help you build a solid mathematical foundation for when you go on to study calculus and beyond.
