About Margaret


Bio

I'm Maggie! I have two engineering degrees, one in Chemical Engineering and another in Engineering & Public Policy, both from Carnegie Mellon, and from college, I hired straight into Boeing. I started tutoring in 2008, and have been tutoring off and on ever since. After a decade of engineering, in 2018 I started teaching full time as well; I teach high school Geometry and Physics at an independent school in Tacoma, WA.

So besides my engineering depth in math of all kinds, and practical use...

I'm Maggie! I have two engineering degrees, one in Chemical Engineering and another in Engineering & Public Policy, both from Carnegie Mellon, and from college, I hired straight into Boeing. I started tutoring in 2008, and have been tutoring off and on ever since. After a decade of engineering, in 2018 I started teaching full time as well; I teach high school Geometry and Physics at an independent school in Tacoma, WA.

So besides my engineering depth in math of all kinds, and practical use of its concepts in my daily career, I also teach HS math--I'm very familiar with textbooks and problem sets of all kinds! I've taught from all kinds of lesson plans, and I can make your teacher's lessons easy for you, too.

I love math, but what makes me a great tutor is that I realize that not everyone does! It's completely fine if you don't like math. It would be a boring world if we were all the same! I'm terrible at drawing, for example, and a lot of my students are excellent at it. I can help you find a handle on your math. Whatever it takes!
