I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research).

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

I've helped students with the ACT for a number of years. There is a mindset to learning the "tricks" of this standardized test. I want students to recognize the patterns to the test questions so that they can know exactly how to answer them.

What terrific instructor!

Joanne is extremely helpful and professional. She has been very thorough and patient when helping me to understand how to better utilize Excel to solve different problems and learn the software's functionality. I truly appreciate that even sometimes when she doesn't know the best way to tackle a problem, she'll go out of her way to figure it out after our lesson for me.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Pre-Health Professional Studies. As a former pre-medicine student, I know the content depth that is important to teach to my students. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes. I can also provide college admissions coaching to prepare students for the SAT and ACT.

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

Albert is willing to go the extra mile to structure a lesson plan that met my specific exam goals. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Matt
Albert did a great job working with my high school son. Despite his quiet demeanor, after the very first lesson, he mapped the most efficient plan to get my son help, asking questions that were straight to the point. Ever since, he won’t allow my son to digress from that path set, and it has seen phenomenal results!

Albert is a great Algebra tutor. He's clear, thorough, and breaks the concepts down into smaller, easier to grasp chunks. Highly recommend!

"We were given Matthews name from a friend that used him for her two sons ACT tests and were happy with the results. My daughter studied with him multiple times at a mutual site preparing for her ACT test. He would not only explain why she missed a problem on a practice test but then teach her so she understood the concept. He was very diligent, professional and thorough in his tutoring. My daughter went up 4 points on her ACT! Couldn’t be happier and HIGHLY recommend Matthew."

"As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is."
