About

I am a certified math teacher with 14 years classroom experience, a Masters in Education from University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Mathematics from University of Minnesota. I teach students for the unique way that they learn & help build foundational skills necessary for contined sucess. I help students master their learning experience by learning their mind so they can be their own advocates in the clsssroom. I provide resources and incentives for students to be motivated in each session as well as create trackers for student progress.

I specialize in Middle School Math, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, and SAT/ACT/GED Prep.

After 14 years of teaching, I've learned...

1.Anyone can learn anything if they believe they can learn

2. Love first to teach well

3. The teacher must allow themselves to be a student

4. Teaching is a spiritual practice. Teachers must stay positive to help students find their motivation.

5. Our babies are brilliant.

    Lenora is so kind, patient, and encouraging while at the same time challenging our 16-y/o child to reach their full potential. She is good at getting our kid engaged in their least favorite subject and giving them more confidence around it. She is extremely knowledgeable both in the subject material of math and reading, as well as how to teach. I highly, highly recommend Lenora Magee as a math and reading tutor.

    Lenora is an excellent math tutor. I would highly recommend her without hesitation. She was well versed in Algebra but, more importantly, shes a great teacher and an inspiring confidence builder. She helped my daughter late in the semester with several urgent and long review sessions -- prior to this, I had never seen my daughter confident in her ability to handle math tests. And she did! After meeting with Lenora, her scores improved and she voluntarily retook a couple of past tests to get her grade up. Thank you, Lenora!

    Lenora was the soul reason I was able to graduate highschool. For the first time in my academic career I not only passed my math class I had an A. I maintained that A for 3 trimesters. All my life my highest grade in math had been a C. Lenora gave me all the confidence and skills I needed. I’ll be working with her throughout college too! I highly recommend her. Specially if you’re neurodivergent like me. Having a learning disability made me feel like I had no hope. But working with lenora completely changed my life. It’s hard being behind in school for most of your life. But lenora came just at the right time. Not only is she my tutor but a life long friend.

    Frequently asked questions

    First, I find out when the student started finding math difficult so I can anticipate where they may need the most help. Then we will complete a short diagnostic just to see where their understanding falls short. We will then work on the most basic skill necessary for them to be at their math grade level.
