    I was required to complete both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 for my BA degree and searched for a tutor online, who would come to my home. I was lucky enough to stumble across Renee. She has incredible knowledge of the subject and actually makes mathematics enjoyable. She is kind, professional, fun and explains each equation/expression so that it becomes understandable. She helps with whatever assignments are necessary, and because of her I enjoy algebra and am doing really well. She is even available in between sessions. I highly recommend Renee.

    Renee comes to your home and helps with any mathematical problems that you may encounter. She explains problems in a way that are easy to understand, provides many examples, and helps with your homework. She is currently my tutor and will remain so until I finish the required Algebra courses for my University Degree. I honestly would not be passing this class without her... she is that fabulous.

    Renee helped our 7th grader perform better in Math. Her grades quickly rose from C's and D's to A's and B's.

  • R McGraw

    Renee is friendly, kind, professional and somehow makes math fun. I enjoy spending the hour and half session with her every week. She clarifies any issues that I have been having with my homework and gives me confidence in solving the equations. She also has tricks that make math easier and does the tutoring in the convenience of my home. I highly recommend Renee.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I find out what is giving them difficultly. I work with my students by working out problems WITH them. I make sure that my worksheets are clear with many steps written out so they can use them after the session is over. I also give my students my contact information so if they are ever stuck on homework they can get help asap. They don't need to wait until the next session.

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

I've been working with students of all levels for well over twenty years...this experience has enabled me to help students very quickly as I'm very familiar with the textbooks and often the teachers they have. Test Prep is espcially rewarding as most of my students get top scores. The key to these top scores is plenty of practice, not tricks but just steady practice!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My rates are on my website! A private session is $95 for 1.5 hours. A block of eight sessions is $725. A one-on-one test prep intensive is $1250 for ten two hour sessions, but I highly recommend students attend my Group Practice sessions. They're only $75 for the three hours of practice and the group is limited to four students. I have them on weekends and honestly this is the most economical and the most benifical way to prepare for the SAT/ACT. Practice is key and having a small group of people who are all doing the same is fun.

How did you get started teaching?

I taught little kids how to read and before long my math/science background came in handy. Siblings needed help and I was able to help them. I found myself in this line of work by accident yet I've been supporting myself and my family for a very long time. I feel lucky that I have work I enjoy. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Every type and this is what keeps my work interesting. Some students have a high GPA and outrageously high test scores.  Some of my students lack confidence and feel intimidated by fractions. Yet each and everyone is willing to learn.
