...Many students report that they do not like math and/or are not good at math. Many of the people I have tutored have experienced success in math for the first time and that success was all they needed to change their mind, at least somewhat, on both counts. I love math, and it is very rewarding to see the shift in attitude about math that comes with a new level of success.

It may seem strange to begin with a statistic, but I trust you will agree it's not wholly inappropriate. During the 2009-2010 school year, my 11 AP Chemistry students had a 100% pass rate with the following score distribution: Seven of them scored a 5, three scored a 4, and one scored a 3. The high scores are greater than three times the national average.

I recently graduated with a degree in mathematics from the University of La Verne, and an currently in the teaching credential program there, on my way to becoming a high school math teacher.

...I can also help students with other concepts such as area, volume, surface area, circles, etc. Prealgebra and algebra 1 often set the foundation for success in math. All of my students have moved on into advanced classes and/or are receiving A's in math.
