New Classes for the 2021-2022 School Year Forming!
I have both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and used math in my job daily as an Engineer with GE Power Systems. After moving to the West Coast, I got involved in Math Assessment Test development and have written math assessment items for standardized tests to Common Core and individual state standards for over 15 years. That development work evolved into also writing for Science Assessment tests and corporate advancement tests. About 6 years ago, I started working for an online tutoring company where I am certified to tutor Elementary Math, Middle School Math, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I have worked with tutoring students as young as Kindergarten all the way up through returning adult students at the college level.
In my experience, online learning can be a place where kids feel safe saying they “don’t get it” until they really do. I believe in strong foundations and helping students get over that hurdle of understanding. I also have a passion for Algebra in particular as I have tutored Calculus many times and found that most people struggle with Calculus because they never truly understood the algebraic concepts that are at the heart of all higher level math.
