Maher's Math Tutoring
I treat each student individually with compassion, care, and dignity. Each student learns differently and I work with you to understand the best way for you to comprehend the material.
I also offer test-taking strategies and appropriate age-level study tips. My goal is to get you to appreciate math and not get frustrated with math!
I can offer web services -- video tutoring, and online progress reports. I work with your school district and school as allowed to make sure you are using the most current curriculum and math course content.
I am a licensed Math Teacher in the state of Oregon and have been teaching for over 10 years. I use technology with the internet and online courses to help differentiate my tutoring sessions for each student. Math can be a rewarding subject to learn and understand.
Reach out to me so I can help you/ your student learn and appreciate MATH and more!
I enjoy the one to one, or small group, interaction where I am able to help students overcome any struggles. I'm excited when I see that students understand math, they're less frustrated and show me improved test scores.
Students are always happy to come back to their next tutoring session and get through to the next level.
