I have been tutoring all levels of algebra for about two years now. I've helped students who needed help for academics as well as those who struggled in algebra for standardized tests as well.

Algebra 2


I have been tutoring biology (regular, honors, and AP levels) for about two years. Biology was also my major in college; I have a bachelor's of science in the subject.


I have helped many students in chemistry throughout the academic year, including biochemistry in biology courses. I also took several chemistry courses in college as a science major and aced them.


Grammar is a huge factor both for students in school and on standardized test preparation. I have helped students of all ages with their grammar needs in school and I have also taught students grammar in both the SAT and ACT English sections.


Geometry is very prevalent on both the ACT and SAT; I have tutored this subject both for standardized test preparation and for academic purposes when kids are taking the course in school. Geometry has become one of my favorite subjects as I have taught it so much.


I have about two years of experience in tutoring physics, including regular, honors, and AP levels. I have tutored AP physics courses that used the same homework as the local university's physics homework. I also took and aced physics in college.


I have been tutoring all math up to and including calculus for about 5 years now, including Prealgebra.


I have taught all levels of precal for about 5 years.



I am fluent in Spanish, including reading, writing, and speaking. I studied abroad in an immersion program and minored in Spanish as well. Spanish is actually my favorite subject to teach. I've been tutoring Spanish for a few years now.
