Sometimes students just don't feel quite up to the task of an advanced course. I identify with those students since I've had the same experience. But since I also figured out how to salvage situations like this, I can help you do the same. I have years of experience in tutoring students in both high-school and college-level algebra, and I would be happy to help you, too. 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 deser [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]

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. 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 followe [more]

Usually, students will learn Algebra 2 in their high school years. Understanding Algebra 2 is quite important since success in College Algebra and/or Pre-Calculus depends on understanding Algebra 2. Also, ACT and SAT Math both test Algebra 2. Having taught this subject for over 10 years, I can help you whether you are struggling on this math subject or want to ace it. 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 thought that tutoring would become my passion [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]

One of the best parts about Algebra II is that you finish numbers! The geometry and algebra keep going on into the stratosphere of calculus and variations and multiple dimensions &tc, but at least one big chunk of math wraps up; the imaginary number i "completes" algebra. (And actually, it does exist, it isn't merely a symbol or concept.) I first tutored a friend with her algebra in 1987. Since then I've taken a degree in physics and if you google 'sangaku' you'll see one of my favorite types of algebra puzzle. If the roots and quadratics and polynomials and exponents and rational expre [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]

My passion to teach goes back a long way to my school and college days when I used to not only tutor, but mentor students and classmates to make sure they develop a conceptual understanding of the lesson. This passion to teach has only grown with time, even working as an Information Technology executive over the years, I have contributed towards the success of many high school and college students by teaching math and physics, including my two children throughout their academic career ?one ...

I have tutored algebra II for over two years, both with Wyzant and through a private agency in the San Jose area. This class is a big step up from algebra 1, and it often includes a student's first real exposure to trigonometry. If the student had any difficulty with algebra 1, ironing out those problems will be a top priority. Thankfully, this course is often very similar to precalculus, so if you learn the material well you won't have as much work to do if you continue to precalc. I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far [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]
