Overview

Hello! Thank you for looking at my page! I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2011 with a B.A. in Mathematics and a minor in Music Theory. I was a tutor in college for 2 years and was a substitute teacher for 3 years after that. During my substitute teaching, I was a long-term sub for 3 months in a series of Algebra 2 classes. I also just finished teaching 6 classes of high school level Geometry for an entire school year.

Tutoring is one of my favorite things to do. I find it much easier than large class instruction. There is more opportunity for one-on-one attention, and my experience shows that students generally perform better in a tutoring environment.

I have my BA in Math and I've taught in large classrooms for a year and a half, as well as over 5 years tutoring everything from pre-algebra to calculus.

Please send me an email with your tutoring needs, and I will answer very quickly. I hope to hear from you! Thank you for your time!

John W. and I were colleagues at Poinciana High School in Orlando, Florida for a school year. He is one of the most professional, hardworking teachers that I know. His dedication to his students is so evident, and he really goes above and beyond in preparing lessons! You can't go wrong with this tutor!
