About Me

Experience Summary

I am an established, experienced math and chemistry tutor and have taught SAT math test prep for a private company. I cover elementary school through high school level math, including homeschooling assistance, and SAT/ACT math test preparation, some college level math, as well as other standardized math tests. Including private school entrance exams. I tutor high school and introductory college chemistry, as well as the science sections of many standardized tests, including Praxis, TEAS, ASVAB. I hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry, minored in math in college, even tutored math while in high school. I've tutored 100s of students of all abilities and that length and breadth of experience helps me help you.

Teaching Style

My goal is to connect with the student at THEIR level. We start by going over the basics of problem solving and work from there to foster independent thinking. I use varied approaches when the student is "stuck." I am friendly, patient and very persistent. I can assist with classwork and homework, and will tailor tutoring sessions to your needs. I will assign supplemental work to advance in the subject area as needed or desired. My ultimate goal - to work myself out of a job!

Other Comments

I have had successful tutoring and teaching experiences, and many happy clients who felt confident and prepared for their academic classes or standardized tests, including the TEAS, GRE, Praxis, GMAT, ISEE, SSAT, GED, SAT, ACT,... I can quickly identify weak areas and work efficiently and patiently to raise both skill and confidence. Google me for ratings and reviews!

Many people say, "I don't test well".

Working on both fronts, we will build your skills and confidence to get through your test!
