Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have a passion for math and I love to share it. I have been tutoring since 2005 and I have had hundreds of students. Many families have hired me annually to help their students maintain their knowledge of math as well as their high grades. I also have experience with ACT prep (all subjects) and a large number of my students see an improvement of four or more points on their ACT score.

My knowledge in math includes pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, trigonometry, geometry, calculus 1, and calculus 2. I am very experienced with not only the subjects, but with the school districts in the Naperville, Plainfield, Aurora, and Oswego areas and what they look for from their students. I am willing to offer references upon request of past families whose students have worked with me and have succeeded in their academic goals.

I focus not only on helping your child succeed with the math they are learning and their course, but ensure that they have a fundamental knowledge of what they are doing to help them in their preparation for their future math courses.

There is no such thing as "stupid". Many students think that reaching out to a tutor makes them less intelligent, and I believe this is completely false. When someone struggles with a subject, this just means that they need to learn it in a different way or view it with a different approach. My extensive knowledge means I can approach each problem in different ways until we find the way that works for your child.
