Retired teacher with 34 years experience enjoys helping students understand math concepts and gain self confidence.

Methodology

I believe that every student has the potential to succeed and with some one on one tutoring, students are better able to understand the subjects and curriculum being taught. I sincerely try to develop a rapport with my students so that they feel comfortable working with me.

Background

If you are looking for a tutor that helps you understand math and science concepts, I am the one. Recently, a retired teacher with 34 years experience and over 10 years of tutoring high school students in all areas. I enjoy working one on one with students and explaining ideas so that you understand and remember concepts. I will help build your confidence and prepare you for finals.
