A graduating senior wrote me--"Dear Tralee, Gaining confidence in math helped me gain confidence in my life--more than you will EVER know!” (I love making a difference.-TJ)
I do more than teach math! Students receive precise and patient instruction in a relaxed setting. In every session, students learn logical thinking, perseverance, problem-solving, study skills, anxiety reduction, and self-awareness. I carefully tune in to what the student needs and build on their strengths. At your 1st appointment in Emeryville, I will interview the student; we will set learning goals; and then work on HW or returned tests. If we're a good match, we discuss future plans. www.GreatMathTutoring.com 415 508-MATH
I would like to recommend Tralee Johnson as a math tutor for elementary, middle or high school kids. Her background as a licensed therapist and school counselor is evident along with her comfort with the subject and skill as a teacher. She not only teaches math, she also builds confidence.
I highly recommend Tralee Johnson for math tutoring. My daughter has been working with her for about two years now. Originally, we came to Tralee for test preparation on the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam), as we were applying to private middle schools for my daughter. However, she worked such magic and had an instant connection with my daughter that we decided to continue on with her. As of now, my daughter sees her once a week for review, deeper explanations, clarification and quiz/test prep for sixth grade math.Tralee has such a calm, warm and patient demeanor while simultaneously approaching each math problem with such enthusiasm. She has most definitely given my daughter's confidence in math a huge boost. Another thing she has a real knack for is working with pre-teen/teen resistance and/or gripping. I've heard it first hand from my daughter during their sessions and somehow she's able to work her magic and get my daughter to keep moving forward and stay on task. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have found such a dedicated and talented math tutor. Her contact information is www.GreatMathTutoring.com and her phone # (415) 508-MATH.
We've been seeing Tralee Johnson all summer & plan to continue into the fall. She is terrific! Really taking the anxiety out of math for our nearly 12yo and keeping skills sharp. We're also in the hills. For now in the summer we've been going to her in Emeryville. But come fall she'll come to us. She's fine with it as long as you pay travel time.

I would like to recommend Tralee Johnson for math tutoring: (415) 508 MATH, traleej [at] gmail.com, www.greatmathtutoring.com One special, hard-to-find quality that defines Tralee's teaching is the ability to recognize and work with a student's particular learning style. This has produced many positive outcomes for my child, with much less frustration during the process. Tralee is experienced in math subject matter, teaching strategies, and knows how to customize an approach for each individual student. Anon
I strongly recommend Tralee Johnson as a math tutor. My son was enrolled in Algebra 2 last year in an East Bay private school and was not getting the type of instruction he needed. I found Tralee on BPN and took him to see her late in the school year. She provided him with the instruction he needed and made him energized and excited about math again. Rather than procrastinate about his math homework, it became the first thing he did. His test scores drastically improved and he scored an ''A'' on his final. When school started this year, my son asked if he could continue meeting with Tralee to get help as needed and begin preparation for college placement tests. I am so glad we found Tralee she is awesome. My son loves math and he looks forward to every session with Tralee. Tralee can be reached at (415)508-MATH or on her website http://www.TheMathmaticsTutor.org Karrie S.
I recommend Tralee Johnson as a tutor. My child was doing poorly in Algebra and we desperately needed to find someone to help. I found Tralee from previous BPN reviews and arranged for her to tutor my son. He went from having a D in class to an A. If you need a tutor, give her a try! Mary
I highly recommend Tralee Johnson for all math tutoring! Tralee tutored our 12 year old girl moving from an arts based elementary to a public Middle school in Berkeley. Our daughter is very quick learner in math and able to work above grade level but had never taken a test as her elementary school did not use testing. We contacted Tralee to help prepare our daughter to take a math placement test given at the end of 6th grade for students interested in placing out of pre-algebra for 7th grade and right into Algebra. In sessions with Tralee she used sample STAR questions available on CA Dept of Ed website for 7th grade math competency (brilliant!). She gave my daughter much needed practice for problems she was shaky in. More importantly, Tralee also taught her new concepts that she had not been exposed to in an efficient way that was easy to remember at test time! She greatly increased my daughter's test taking confidence and her skill level in a short time. I especially appreciated her skills as a former teacher when it came to my daughter learning new math concepts! Math Whiz Mom
I would strongly like to recommend Tralee Johnson as a math tutor. My seventh-grader worked consistently with Tralee since the mid-sixth grade and earned an A, even though in prior years she professed to absolutely hating math and not getting it. Tralee is gentle and patient in her approach and seems to make the material accessible, if not fun . . . I often hear them laughing during the tutoring sessions. We will definitely plan on continuing with Tralee in the eighth grade. Contact info: 415 508-MATH. www.TheMathematicsTutor.org
