"Hi! My name is Margaret and I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. I also received a Master's degree in Social Work specializing in Child, Youth, and Family Services. During my long educational career, I realized that there was not always help available. I also saw children struggling at the younger ages which created continued difficulties as subjects became more complex and difficult. Because of this, I saw a need that I may be able to fulfill. I began tutoring elementary aged children and gradually expanded to tutor college level students and adults seeking to fulfill their desires to complete high school programs.

My method of teaching is to introduce lessons in unique but fun ways. I work with the student step-by-step to find out exactly where the beginning of the help is needed. Then, I break down the problem to help understanding. Once comprehension begins, I slowly introduce more guided individual work until full confidence in the lesson is achieved.

One of the most rewarding experiences is seeing someone fully understand the very things that they found so difficult. I work with each individual based on their own unique needs and modify approaches as necessary. Feel free to contact me with additional questions or to schedule a lesson!

Math is one of the subjects that gets the worst reputation! Breaking down math problems into easily identified steps and guiding through those steps is something that I have done with children and adults to basic algebraic instruction. Don't let all the signs, letters, and symbols make math scary! I have experience up to college level mathematics including statistics and data analysis.

Our basic nature starts out with biology and all of those names and classifications can be a little intimidating. Understanding basic biology can be a breeze with the right tools. I have experience with biology up to college level, including experience specialized classes such as psychopharmacology and physiological psychology.
