hired 1 time on Thumbtack
Hello, and welcome!
I can tutor you or your child in preparation for the following exams:
I offer subject tutoring in the following areas:
- mathematics (all levels)
- science (chemistry, physics, oceanography, general science, and biology)
- writing/English Language Arts
- history/social studies
My rates are as follows:
- If we meet in the Pimmit Hills area of Falls Church, at or near my home: $50/hr.
- Areas outside of Pimmit Hills: start at $60/hr., depending on location.
-- the heart of Tyson's Corner, Falls Church City, and McLean (close-in): $60/hr;
-- North Arlington, Vienna, Annandale, and 7 Corners: $65/hr for the first hour, and $60 for each additional hour
-- Fairfax City, Alexandria City, Great Falls: $75/hr. for the first hour, and $60 for each additional hour
Lessons are structured to fit the needs of my students and take into account their prior learning and test scores, as well as their goals. I most recently taught full time at a Maryland community college, and now write and edit curriculum and assessment materials. As much of the work I have done has been writing, editing, and analyzing both official and practice test items for state and national exams, I am very familiar with the format, content, strategies, and objectives of exams such as the Virginia SOLs, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, TJ, etc.
Many students have been accepted to top-rated schools and programs (with scholarship support), and I have helped students move up several letter grades in school - several have even improved from a D or F to an A!
I hold a master's degree in mathematics and bachelor's degrees in mathematics and education.
I truly enjoy teaching and helping others reach their potential. I have a solid knowledge of local academic programs, and when school-age students are involved, I work with parents and teachers to set up the best plan for my students.
I have professional writing and editing experience and have taught mathematics and science at various private and public schools and colleges. My successes include students with differing abilities, including accelerated students and those with learning disabilities.
I tutor in Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC, with particular focus on Falls Church, Arlington, McLean, and Alexandria, and can also tutor in Prince George's County and Montgomery County, MD, when it fits into my commute schedule.
Students can choose one-on-one or group tutoring and test prep options (if there is a group forming.)
I look forward to working with you.
