Experienced Math and Test Prep Tutor

Helping students reach new levels of success is my passion! I adjust my support to fit each student's individual goals and learning style. I have a B.A. from Smith College and have completed several graduate courses in education (including assessment and intervention). I have been tutoring full-time for several years, and I love to see my students reach their goals. While I help my students get through their assignments, I build their understanding of the skills needed to complete their work... [more]


Algebra 1

I have helped students to succeed in high school Algebra (levels 1, 2, and 3) and college level advanced Algebra courses. I also have experience working with adults who need to pass a pre-requisite course or test for their graduate programs in nursing, veterinary sciences, and other fields. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!


Algebra 2

I have helped students to succeed in high school Algebra (levels 1, 2, and 3) and college level advanced courses. I also have experience working with adults who need to pass a pre-requisite course or test for their graduate programs in nursing, veterinary sciences, and other fields. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!


Calculus

The motivations of my students for taking Calculus have varied from simply needing to pass the class, to fulfilling a requirement for their Engineering major or Pre-med program. Whatever your motivation, I am happy to meet you where you are and help you to achieve your goal!


Geometry

In addition to my experience helping students to pass their Geometry courses, I have also taught Geometry one-on-one with several homeschoolers over the years. I have a wealth of experience and resources to draw upon while working with students. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!


Prealgebra

I enjoy working with students in Pre-Algebra because they are building skills for their future success in math and for problem solving in general. I have helped students who have been struggling, as well as those who are gifted and looking for a challenge. I have a wealth of experience and resources to draw upon while working with students. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!


Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is a key stepping stone from high school Algebra and Geometry into college-level math and Calculus. In my years working with students at this level, I've found it helpful to meet students at their level. We can review material from previous coursework, and often fill in gaps, in order to build a more solid foundation for their Pre-Calc work.


Trigonometry


Statistics

I have experience tutoring probability and statistics at the high school and college levels. I can provide examples that are explained at your level so that you can understand what your teacher and textbook are trying to say. I can get you up to speed so that you can understand your problem sets and pass your exams.


SAT Math


GRE

I enjoy helping people to tackle the GRE and clear that hurdle on their way to graduate school. I have a wealth of experience and resources to draw upon while working with test preppers. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!

ACT Reading

I have been tutoring students to prepare them for the ACT for 5+ years. I stay up to date with the latest changes to the test and tailor my support to fit each student. My clients find that focusing on their skills and goals is a more effective way to improve performance versus a one-size-fits-all program. I look forward to making a plan to fit your needs!

Study Skills

My approach to study skills involves identifying goals, motivation, and strategies for making study sessions effective. No one wants to sit at a desk re-reading notes for hours, especially when it doesn?t give stellar results. Studying science isn?t the same as studying French, so why do we take the same approach? Let?s work together to find strategies that will produce results. I will help you set meaningful, measurable goals so that you can see your progress.


Discrete Math

If your school offers discrete math, you are in luck! I have experience tutoring several students in discrete math, and it is one of the more lively topics of mathematics. Discrete math is grounded in real-world problems, which makes it relevant and fun. I can show you examples related to your interests (biology, business, puzzles, etc.) as we explore this fascinating subject.


Accuplacer

I find helping students to prepare for the Accuplacer a truly rewarding experience. Performing well on the Accuplacer allows students to get off to a great start on their college experience. Starting at the right level of coursework allows students to progress in the most efficient way, sometimes allowing them to fulfill requirements earlier opening the door to electives, a minor, or earlier graduation. Without prep, some students can find themselves in a remedial course when they simply needed a refresher. I look forward to helping you prepare for the Accuplacer and a great start to college!
