I make learning fun; I have been teaching for 50 years, yet stay up-to-date on new techniques and types of problems. I love having my students feel the success of learning and expanding their knowledge base. What makes my business stand out is the remarkable success rate for my students on the ACT and SAT: On average, they are admitted to their first choice college at a rate 200% higher than the average student. On average, students who have worked with me are awarded $9000 more in grants or scholarships than that particular college awards I am thorough and patient and I help a student understand hid/her own learning style.

Hello! My name is Lucy, and this fall I'll be heading to the University of Michigan, specifically the Ross School of Business, to study finance. I've always loved math and have tutored multiple students over the past five years. This summer I would love to tutor your son or daughter to help better ready them for their upcoming math class. I'd be using the University of Chicago Everyday Mathematics workbooks as well as other various worksheets each week. My goal as a tutor is for students (and parents) to see tangible results as well as for the student to be confident going into their next year of learning!
