I empathize with students who feel inadequate in certain subjects because I've been there myself. I have also learned how to get out of such holes. This attitude--that problems can be overcome with the proper help--is what I offer my students, along with years of tutoring experience in Algebra 1 and 2. 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 [more]

Although I love to learn, I thoroughly enjoy helping others to find their potential and see them succeed! I have tutored privately for the past two and a half years. Prior to that, I was honored enough to be selected as a physics Peer Learning Assistant through the Women in Engineering grant at my community college. As a recent magna cum laude graduate, I understand the difficulty presented by certain coursework that sometimes makes success seem insurmountable. My time as an undergraduate tut... [more]

Algebra is the base for success in Trig, PreCalc, and Calculus. Understanding the concepts of Algebra will make learning future material more accessible to your student. Build a strong core foundation and you will be able to draw upon this knowledge for all future classes. I have taught all levels of math for over 20 years in Portland. I have spent the past 4 years tutoring high school students through all Algebra levels, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus and Calculus. I specialize in helping students who learn visually and verbally, not just symbolically. [more]

Most students learn Algebra 1 during the middle school years. I have taught this subject in the last 13+ years more times than I can remember, and I know which areas students struggle the most. I will teach Algebra 1 completely so this will become a foundation so the student can succeed in Algebra 2, which builds upon the previous Algebra 1 knowledge. Also, for the advanced students, I will help you to solve application problems that will help you for future SAT/ACT Math questions. In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing th [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 am a retired theater and English teacher. I have been tutoring for two years and have found it to be the most fulfilling form of teaching I have done. The thing I love most about tutoring is re-igniting a love for learning in my students. Most students requiring tutoring feel a little defeated and as a consequence have lost their natural inquisitiveness about a certain subject they struggle with. Turning that defeat into triumph, the confusion to understanding and watching self-esteem bl... [more]

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 would be more than happy to be your next tutor. I know that I can bring my strong educational and professional experiences to generate logical connections between the beautiful language of Mathematics and Physics. My educational experiences has lead to understanding nature at the "nano" level and further into the Quantum level while using a full range of Mathematics to conceptualize and describe each problem. In addition with my research background in atomic and nano physics, I know the imp... [more]

I tutored pre algebra and algebra for two years at a private middle school in Santa Clara, CA. I've also tutored high school math through Wyzant. Many kids (and adults!) can be intimidated by algebra, but if you take it step by step and you're clear on the concepts, you can manage it. I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far I like it, though there is a lot of rain to deal with! I've tutored for three years in the San Jose area, mostly in math. I've taught kids from 5th grade up through 12th and some college students as we [more]

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]
