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...

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]

My fall schedule is filling up. I have a couple of random evening times for ?math emergencies.? I have morning and early afternoon times. Due to the time difference, this works very well for East Coast students online. A bit about me... I didn't start out with the thought of being a teacher. I followed my heart...my passion for math. I have a Master of Science in Teaching Mathematics and I emphasize the teaching. I have been teaching at the college level for the past 20+ years and tuto... [more]

ACT Math tests math concepts from basic mathematics to Algebra 2 which is similar to SAT Math. Unlike the SAT Math sections, ACT Math requires the test takers to solve more problems in less time, and asks simpler (less tricky) questions. The strategy here is to learn to work quickly by becoming familiar with the math topics. I have been teaching this subject for over 10 years, and I can help you to score higher. In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this as as a full time career with 20+ regular students. Who would have t [more]

I've been training, teaching and tutoring on and off since 1987, and tutoring exclusively since 2005. I tutor simply because I enjoy helping others succeed by mastering the essential principles that will apply in all contexts. I specialize in preparing students for exams like the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and MCAT, but can also help with advanced math, chemistry and physics at both the high school and college level. I can provide study material and several practice exams. I can usually help a ... [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 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]

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]
