Algebra 1

Algebra is both a fascinating and sometimes confusing math course. To do well, a student needs mastery of underlying PreAlgebra skills. I have years of experience working with students in all areas of algebra and all the basic support skills. In addition, I am certified grades 6-12 in math to work with students.


Algebra 2

Algebra requires a multitude of skills and I have over 20 years of experience helping students understand and master Algebra. As a certified, experienced math teacher, I have helped countless students not only succeed, but truly master math. Often I find, students need additional review and practice presented in a patient and encouraging manner, or they need regular help with homework or test prep. No matter what the skill or learning challenge I am able to meet my math students where they are and help each become much more successful. Students often tell me, "I wish you were my math teacher!" This is one of the greatest compliments I can receive because I know I have not only made a connection with my students but helped my students understand Algebra!

Geometry

As a professional tutor for the past 20 years, and a certified math teacher, I have helped countless students better understand the subject of geometry.

Having a guide along the way who knows that path to success is invaluable.

TEAS

As an professional tutor for the last 18 years, I have worked with students across the spectrum in a variety of test prep areas, including the TEAS. My Master's degree in Sports Medicine along with my experience as an Emergency Medical Technician allows me to provide much more detailed insight into the specific types of questions on the test. In my experience, I have found some test prep materials offered for the TEAS do not adequately prepare the test taker for the exam. Often, the test prep materials are watered down to the point of creating a false sense of security about the test taker's skill level. In having worked with many TEAS students, my medical background combined with my educational experience and certification has allowed me to identify the components needed for successful test taking. These include a reasonable time frame for improving skills, individualized instruction and periodic skill assessment and review. The TEAS test is used as a tool to measure a prospective nursing student?s skills. The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is useful in predicting an individual?s chances of success in nursing school and identifies which applicants may need additional practice and review before entering a program. The test is scored in four areas, English, math, language and science, and contains 13 sub content areas. The test has a total of 170 questions and uses an objective format. There is a math portion of the TEAS and calculators cannot be used. Once the test is administered, results are usually available within 48 hours. Practice test are available to prospective students. In addition, there are study materials/manuals for extra review.
