Learn Math fundamentals from a certified teacher and tutor with years of experience
The term math is a very broad term covering all math from basic counting through more advanced topics such as statistics, calculus, geometry, algebra and more. I teach all math topics through Algebra I. Algebra I is generally taught in middle school or the first year of high-school. Common to all topics in math is that I use manipulative. Math is an abstract concept. Using visual objects that can also be held and touched makes math easier to understand.

Hi! I'm an online certified teacher and reading specialist. My personal goal is to foster academic success in the student in your life. In addition, I strive to teach the necessary skills for every one of my students to become independent learners. From reading comprehension and algebra to study skills and English, my mission is to tutor students who have fallen through the cracks in our educational system. Meeting my clients’ specialized needs is an essential part of each lesson I create. I hold a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education (emphasis on reading and reading comprehension) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. My teaching experience includes 33+ years of 1:1 tutoring, 6 years of online homeschooling (math, English/Language Arts, science, social studies/history), 1 year of in-person homeschooling (reading & music), 10 years in the public school system teaching first grade, 10 years in both the public school system and private schools teaching music and 1 year at the college level teaching basic computer use.

Chase was way behind reading in the first grade. It was becoming a serious problem as Chase grew to hate school. That is, until Miss Becky came to help. Mother, father, teachers, and grandparents all tried to help. But none of us could get to him…he completely shut down. His tears and frustration were heartbreaking for all of us. In three months of lessons with Chase and coaching for the adults (we changed our approach entirely), Chase not only caught up with first grade reading, but was more than ready for the second grade. As Chase entered the second grade, we continued lessons with Miss Becky to ensure that Chase did not fall behind. He did very well that school year...what a huge difference from the previous year! He got to the point where he could read everything in front of him. The entire family was elated, especially Chase! Now he could read and understand vocabulary words that were one and two grades ahead of him. As he enters the third grade, reading is no longer a nightmare!! With Miss Becky's academic knowledge and her very special approach to teaching children, she has made one boy and his family very happy! Thank you, Miss Becky, from the very bottom of all of our hearts!
