I've been a math tutor for over 20 years, both on my own and for other companies. I've worked for Sylvan Learning Center, as well as Edmonds Community College. I'm very good with students with disabilities and learning challenges. I'm patient, and I can adjust my explanations to suit individual learning styles.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I raised a son with ADHD, and I've worked with many students with this diagnosis. One of my past positions was with the Students With Disabilities Office at Edmonds Community College, where I worked with many students with ADD/ADHD.

Algebra is my specialty. I can explain the concepts in many different ways, and all of the students I have taught have done very well after they've been tutored by me.

Algebra I includes understanding integers, working with variables, solving equations and using formulas. It also involves solving story problems and is a very important basis for further math studies.

I have tutored elementary school students at Sylvan learning center. I'm certified in Elementary Math and Science, and have done homework support with that age in a wide variety of subjects.

Elementary Math students can be of any age. A student may be an adult or older student who needs help brushing up on forgotten math for a job or test, or because they are going back to school. Most students in this position remember more quickly then they think they are going to. I provide clear, concise explanations that make sense, so my students are able to understand and remember, not just memorize.

If the student is in elementary school, I will offer alternate explanations and additional practice for the topics they are struggling with. Struggling students can be more successful than they often believe they can be.

I've worked in a college GED lab, and I'm able to tutor all of the subjects. Students typically have the most difficulty with math.

Because I love Algebra, I also love prealgebra, and helping students be prepared for Algebra and more advanced subjects.

Prealgebra involves learning to work with numbers and variables in new ways, working with fractions and decimals, ratios and proportions, statistics and probability, basic geometry and basic algebra. Students who understand these very important basics are ready to move on to algebra.

I have worked as a bookkeeper for many years, and used QuickBooks in my bookkeeping work. I tested at an expert level when applying for the temporary agency I was working for, and I have set up company books from scratch.

I have been employed in the Students With Disabilities Office at Edmonds Community College, working with many students with special needs. I am patient and kind. When I am working with students, I am careful to relate concepts to others that are already understood.

I work with students on keeping track of assignments, planning projects and study time, increasing reading comprehension and vocabulary and reducing test anxiety.
