Introduction: Hi! I am a certified high school math teacher with a degree in computer science from the University of Virginia and a masters in mathematics education from Columbia University. I taught high school math in NYC for 5 years as a Math for America fellow and am now a full time SAT/ACT tutor. How does it work? 1. First, we set up a time for the first session right here over Thumbtack. 2. Next, we exchange Skype names so we can connect for a voice call (no webcam required). We'll use an online whiteboard to work out problems together. 3. I will give you a call on Skype when it's time for us to get started! My students get consistently wonderful results and I would love to help you get your best score on this test too! Looking forward to working with you :)

Math Tutoring

My daughter has been working with Louise since early in the year. She came to Louise with an ACT of 29 back in February 2020. Several of her tests were canceled due to Covid but she took the test again in October and scored a 33! My daughter loves Louise. After scoring well, my daughter was sad that she was no longer going to be working with Louise. Louise has a great combination of patience, thoroughness, clarity in communication, positivity and nurturing demeanor. My daughter does not feel like she's being talked down to. The relationship is very collaborative and productive. Best of all, Louise gets results! We've been through a LOT of tutors (seriously). Louise is by far the best. And it will save you a lot of time jumping from one failed tutor to the next. Her prices are fair, her service is outstanding and her approach is very professional. You will not regret hiring her. I promise.

Louise got my daughter through Honors Geometry. She started the school year with barely passing grades. Meeting with Louise online once a week and extra times before each test helped her achieve an "A" for the final quarter and a "B+" for her final year grade. While I was hesitant to use an online tutor, it worked out wonderfully. Louise also sent us, the parents, an email after each tutoring session with a full report on progress and/or issues that needed more work. Highly recommended as a math tutor!!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Please note that payment for each session is due the night before to hold your child's spot. I also offer a discount on the purchase of a package of 10 sessions.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, we set up a time for the first session. This can be done over the phone, or you can book me directly via my website. Next, we exchange Skype names so we can connect for a voice call (no webcam required). We'll use an online whiteboard to work out problems together. I will give you a call on Skype when it's time for us to get started!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a masters degree in Math Education from Columbia University and am certified to teach high school in the state of Illinois. I was a high school math teacher in NYC for five years and have been tutoring online for an additional six.
