I have more than 30 years' experience teaching at the high school and university levels. I love my students and flourished working in the classroom. Now I am free to give each student the attention that he or she deserves. My education comprises 12 years of post-secondary work. I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon, fifth-year teaching certification at Portland State University, a Master of Arts from the University of Portland, and four years of doctoral study (ABD) fr...

I have been trained to teach ACT math for 2 years at a prestigious tutoring facility, and have been doing it for 5 years. I taught several 8 week boot camp courses for classes averaging around 25 students, and one on one. When it comes to ACT math I'm 100% confident that I would be the best choice for you! Hi future students and parents!!! My name is Aki, and I was a Physics/Calculus teacher at a small private school located in San Diego. Now, I've relocated to Portland and am a full time tutor, dedicating all my attention to the success of each and every student I have. I've started tutorin [more]

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

I have taught several classes in SAT/ACT test prep, and I have helped over 30 students reach their goal scores. I cover SAT/ACT math as well as strategies for the reading and writing sections. I also tutor academic math subjects - Prealgebra, Algebra, and Geometry. My tutoring experience spans 9 years, nearly 1000 hours with Wyzant students, and almost 4 times as many tutoring hours with students at The Portland Tutoring Collective. I have coached students to perfect 800s on all sections of the SAT, and high 30s on the ACT. I specialize in the following subjects: - SAT, ACT, and GRE test pr [more]

I recently graduated from Oregon State University with a master's degree in Marine Resource Management. Before that, I obtained a bachelor's degree in environmental science, with a minor in chemistry, from Western Washington University. I've always been passionate about the environment, particularly the marine ecosystem. I'm fascinated by the way that humans interact with the natural world and how we can manage those interactions to protect and preserve them. I have experience teaching about... [more]

I have always been above average at math. I finished 2 years of calculus in high school (during which I tutored some class mates) but I'm also aware that gifts come on a spectrum. I've been given great opportunities that allow me to better connect with people that I am working with and don't make them feel bad. For example, I was in my second year of calculus at 17 years old. For many people who struggle at math, that would be intimidating, but a 12 year old taught the class. I've also worked... [more]

The math part of the ACT is the part that seems to give people the most trouble. I can help you understand the math, the "why" if it. When you understand that, doing the problems becomes much easier. And, in standardized tests like the ACT, you can many times eliminate all but two or even one of the given choices. I can help you do that without working out the whole problem. An initial get-acquainted meeting is free (if we get into real tutoring, then there will be a charge). You see who I am, what kind of person I am, and what kind of tutor I will be; I see where you are in the subject you ar [more]

I am a special education teacher in Parkrose School District, where I work with students with a variety of disabilities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, and ADHD. I have recently moved to Portland from San Francisco, where I was taught for over 14 years in SFUSD. I have been tutoring for over 18 years, for a variety of ages and subjects, including phonemic awareness, reading comprehension, writing, math through geometry, SAT prep, organiza... [more]

When tutoring students in math, I help them to know the methodology and to understand the reasoning behind it. So they have a better chance to be able to solve the current problems, to build a better math foundation, and yet to have fun with it as well. I work with the students around their class materials and assignments. Also, if it is needed, I could pick a few additional problems to enhance what they've learned. This connects their school work and would fill the gaps around the subjects... [more]

My name is Alannah, and I recently graduated from St. Mary's Academy. In the fall, I will be attending Yale University. I was a volunteer tutor at Mathnasium when I was an underclassman, where I worked with elementary, middle, and high school aged kids. As an upperclassmen, I racked up over a hundred math tutoring hours through my school's National Honors Society. I love math and teaching it! I really have a passion for math, and I love sharing that passion with others. Feel free to con... [more]
