I'm a recent graduate from UCLA with a B.S. in mathematics
for teaching. I have been tutoring full time since fall 2010, which means I have over 1000 hours total tutoring experience working with students from 2nd to 12th grade, and beyond. I am certified in both the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST
) and the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET) in mathematics.
I tutor every middle school or high school math
subject including calculus
1, Algebra 2
, calculus, geometry
), and I'm happy to tutor my students' younger siblings in elementary school math, too. I also tutor in some university-level mathematics (single variable calculus, college algebra
, abstract algebra and analysis, to name a few). If the university-level math course you need help with is not listed, please feel free to contact me to ask if I can help you with it.
I teach not only the procedures for completing problems, but also why those procedures work, where the concepts are used in the real world and why they are important. I have many engaging, intuition-building real-world mathematics lessons prepared for the most challenging subjects that have been extensively tested in the classroom for effectiveness. Because I tutor in almost every level of mathematics, I can effectively help both students who need help catching up to their peers and students who need more challenging work than they are given in school. I truly love mathematics, and it is my passion to inspire new students to understand and appreciate its beauty. I can't wait to hear from you!
I generally only do in-home tutoring for students who live within about 5 miles of 90034 (the Palms area of L.A.) but I am also happy to meet any student at a public location (coffee shop, library, etc.) in or near Palms or Culver City. Unsure if you are within my travel range? Feel free to contact me to ask, I would be happy to let you know. Also, I may be able to travel further for an additional fee.
36 hours notice required
My full fee for the lesson may be charged if a lesson is cancelled less than 36 hours in advance.

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
Here are some of the resources created by Carrie.

I came across this question while applying to a teacher training program called EnCorps. I liked it so much I think I'll share it with you.
As a successful professional, how have you used math or science in your daily work? What would you say to a student who questioned whether math or science would be useful in their future? How will you communicate that with students in a classroom?
