ACHIEVEMENT. EXCELLENCE. PERFORMANCE. RESULTS.
I am a certified math teacher in secondary math. I understand the passion, patience and desire needed in order to enable students to be successful in math. My 34 years of teaching junior high school, 39 years of tutoring math, 4H project leader, coaching sports, service dog trainer, and continuing education have equipped me to help your student be successful. I specialize in Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry.
My girls have been tutored by Gretchen Jones both in middle school and in high school. We have also used other tutors, when she was not available, but, by far, she is the best. She is extremely talented at teaching all levels of math and is also able to diagnose why the students are having trouble and work to correct that. I highly recommend her!
Gretchen is, without a doubt, a teacher that cares for her students and wants each of them to succeed. She respects her students and encourages them, while teaching them the necessary study skills to be confident scholars. I know that Gretchen will be a teacher whom both my daughters will never forget. Her support and dedication to their success is something we will always be grateful for. I highly recommend Gretchen for teaching and tutoring math at all levels and feel confident that she will continue to inspire many students in the future, both inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to helping her students succeed in math, Gretchen truly cares about the character of her students. She is well respected by students, staff and parents alike. She did a phenomenal job teaching and preparing students. Her expertise and competence in mathematics is second to none.
