I have been tutoring privately for 8 years and have also worked for Sylvan Learning for a short time. I have been teaching math for 7 years in Grayslake. Subjects I have taught include Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and PreCalculus (prep, regular, and honors level). I really enjoy working one on one with students because they can ask more questions and better understand the material.

...I served as the Extended Learning Specialist in a high performing district for five years. I worked with students from kindergarten through 5th grade on both math remediation and math extension. During this time I was completing coursework to obtain my middle school math endorsement, and soon became a middle school math teacher in the same district.

...I have taught science, math, history (social studies), language arts to children of various levels. As the years progress the information the children need to retain in their grade becomes more specific and more complex. I spent my undergraduate time studying Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on Reading.

...Each year, I taught an ACT math prep unit for my juniors. When I took the ACT, I earned a perfect score on the math section. When tutoring ACT math, I take the approach of connecting what the student knows to what the problem is asking for so that the student will be able to do that type of problem in the future.
