Kind and gentle math tutoring (Portland area)

Do you, or your son or daughter, need help with math, but are dreading it? Need a good math tutor for you or your math anxious child? Ever had a bad experience with a tutor who knew the math but was very impatient, or knew the math but had no sense of how to explain it? Or even really didn't know the math?

I'm a kind and patient math tutor with counseling experience and a counseling degree who understands math anxiety, besides being skilled and experienced in teaching mathematics. I've tutored from grade school to college and graduate school: basic math, algebra, geometry, statistics (hypothesis testing such as the t-test and F-test, linear regression, etc.); also GMAT /GRE / SAT math math prep, and also taught math classes to high school students with math difficulties. I'll work with you or your child at whatever level you/he/she are in math.

Some comments from my students and their parents:

Thank you very much for sending the exercises and your enormous patience!

...i got my midterm back and the mean was 75, the median was 78, and I got an 88! So thank you for all of your help so far!

...I don't think I ever thanked you enough for all your help with [my son]and your flexibility with my schedule, so I would like to take this opportunity to do so. THANK YOU!

...I hope you had a great weekend. I just got my math test back and I received 97/100. I'm so excited! Thanks for your help and see you Sunday. :)

...Got a 670 on the math section! Thanks for everything!!!!!!!!!!

...Just wanted to let you know I took the GRE's and got my scores today: 1300 total with 670 in Math, 630 in verbal. (91st percentile!) I was really pleased. Thanks for all your help!

...Thanks so much for all of your help and confidence boosting. I wish you a very happy holiday season!

...I just wanted to share my joy about our progress. I got my results from the diagnostic Gre. Quantitative...Thank you sooooo much for working with me. Your instruction has really helped. My Q score went up 140 points!!!! I'm really excited!!! Thank you !!!!

...I just wanted to let you know that I aced the exam! Thank you for all your help and patience. :)

...I got tutoring for the math section of the May SAT [from you] and we recently got our scores back. On this section in particular, I got a 670, mostly due to the math help you gave me! I'm just writing to say thank you for your help; it was very effective, especially getting familiarized with higher-level math concepts. Thanks again!!!!

...Thank you so much for all your help with [my son], it amazes me that he learned an entire semester of statistics and an entire semester of algebra II in just a few weeks. He got a high B on both of his finals and have just found out that he will be eligible to graduate and walk with his class. I appreciate all that you did and would highly recommend you to any one.

...I want you to know that last night [my daughter] and I hosted an end of summer dinner for all of her friends. There must have been about 15 kids at our house....She told everyone how much she likes her tutor...She said you are so kind and explain things so well. I smiled to myself because you need to know that you have made a big impact. There are not that many 16 year olds that want to talk about their tutor with their friends!
