Tutoring Sessions

I'm willing to meet with you on a regular basis (such as weekly 1-hour sessions) or on an "as needed" basis (such as occasional review sessions before major tests), whichever works for you. I am itinerant and willing to travel to mutually agreeable locations near or at your school, your work, or your home.

I expect you to bring your book, your notes and other course materials, calculator(s), pencils and paper to our sessions and to be able to inform me about scheduled quizzes, tests, and other assignments.

Tutoring appointments can be scheduled at various times. I usually meet with high school clients after school or on weekends, and try to schedule sessions with college students during the day (as schedules allow) or in the evening. Minimum session = 1 hr., Maximum = 2 hrs. Contact me for availability.

As a certified teacher in the State of Washington, I have passed criminal background checks performed by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).

My fees are variable, pro-rated, and are based on the level of math you need help with and your ability to pay. Group rates (up to three people) are also an option. Please contact me directly to inquire about rates for your particular situation.
