Algebra is a language for writing recipes that do calculations. It's also the wacky rules for turning one recipe into another, which are called arithmetic when you apply them to numbers. Once you get familiar with translating between them, you'll sail. 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 advance [more]

I created the the Symmetry, Shape and Space course at Marylhurst University. A second title could be Geometry for Fine Arts students. This course is popular because I apply mathematics to art and nature. Spirals and the golden ratio are used to analyze art from the pyramids to Mondrian. Students count petals on flowers to discover Fibonacci numbers, 1. 1. 2. 3. 5. 8. 13. etc. Students work with compass, string and scissors to design geometric shapes in the same way that Euclid taught ab...

Hi, I'm Mary! I graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psychology and am currently working as a psychologist in the Portland area. During graduate school I taught several psychology courses and helped students not only with course material but also with written and verbal communication skills, improving study habits and study strategies, and learning how to take tests. The courses I taught had anywhere from 20-125 students and I worked very hard to make the material understandable and relatable, an... [more]

Hello! I'm a Portland native with a love for math, science and the outdoors. Combining these passions I studied Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. I especially enjoy chemistry and the amazing insights it can reveal about the world around you! Learning is not easy, it takes time, dedication and perseverance but with someone at your side to encourage you, answer questions, and help see things differently it can be much easier. This is why I decided to tutor, I want to help others ... [more]

I have always enjoyed helping others learn. I attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated in 2011 with a 3.5 GPA and a double major in Mathematics and International Peace Studies. After graduation, I taught upper-level math courses at a high school in Central Florida. (My favorite was AP Calculus!) I am now a full-time tutor and specialize in tutoring students in mathematics (basic math, algebra I and II, geometry, precalculus, calculus) and GED math prep. I also can tutor beginning S...

I discovered my passion for teaching at Grinnell College, where I learned huge difference having committed and engaging instructors able to explain complicated material simply makes to students' learning. I had the opportunity to work as a student mentor for several classes there before graduating with degrees in philosophy, neuroscience, and linguistics, and try to model my teaching style after that of my best professors. Nothing is more satisfying than helping someone make a break through... [more]

I have a Master's in Biology and have experience teaching introductory biology to majors and non-majors at the college level. Plus, I used to teach swimming to young children when I was in college. Since different students learn at different paces, I tailor my instruction to match the student's pace for one-on-one instruction. I have a good understanding of basic algebra, and used it both academically and professionally. I love science - especially biology. Chemistry forms an important... [more]

I just recently tutored a college student who was scared of failing her math course she needed to graduate. She was two months from taking a job in Europe, so you can understand the stress if she wasn't able to pass. We met after her first exam which she scored a 62% on, after our tutoring twice a week she was able to overall get a B in the class. I expressed to her not to be discouraged by her first grade, it's all up hill from here, and we went over her homework and I showed her how once you can do one problem you can apply those steps to all the problems. After a little tutoring she was abl [more]

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Western States. I graduated from the University of Washington (Seattle) in 2008 with a BS Biology degree. I want to tutor primarily elementary students, up to high school students. I had a 3.8 GPA coming out of high school so I believe I can tutor in most subjects up to high school level. I have a firm grasp of the human anatomy as well as human biology. I have tutored privately before and I learned how to be patient as everyone l... [more]

I have a Certification in Substitute Teaching from California. I currently live in SE Portland and am interested in continuing my involvement in teaching. I have taught K-12 courses primarily in STEM courses. I have also held a Teaching Fellow position with Johns Hopkins University in an entry-level engineering summer course. I am confident tutoring high school math and sciences. I was in honors math in high school up until Precalculus. I took college-level Algebra, a short course on Calc... [more]
