All of Carrie’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Carrie’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have extensive experience tutoring in Algebra 1 over the past twelve months since I have been tutoring professionally full time. Algebra 1 is one of the most common subjects I am asked to tutor.

Algebra 2

Like Algebra 1, I have had many requests to tutor Algebra 2 over the past twelve months since I have been tutoring full time. Algebra 2 is one of the most common subjects I am asked to tutor, and I feel I have now completely mastered the material, though I am learning more about how to teach it every day.

C++

As an Undergraduate at UCLA, I worked for the Program in Computing Dept. in the computer lab where my job was to help students in Intro to C++ with their homework and answer any questions they had about C++ programming or using MS Visual Studio. I have completed Intro to C++ Programming (PIC 10a) at UCLA with a B+.

Calculus

Though I receive fewer requests to tutor Calculus, it is one of my favorite subjects to help students with. The material is comparatively fresh in my mind (compared to say, Geometry), and I enjoy the more challenging problems. My calculus lessons are often my favorite of the week.

CBEST

I took the CBEST a couple of years ago, just after finishing my degree in math for teaching. I took it on 4 hours of sleep and still passed. It's basically a review of high school and general ed., so I would be happy to tutor test prep for this exam.

Computer Programming

I took PIC 10a at UCLA a couple of years ago and received a B+. I only know C++ but could help tutor just about any programming language because most are based on C anyways. I'm a tutor for intermediate to advanced programmers who need help with spelling and syntax, not just with mathematics.

English

I love tutoring students in College-Level Essay Writing! Although Math Education is my true passion, communicating ideas logically and organization naturally go along with that subject matter. Since organization and logic skills are key to any essay's argument, this is an obvious fit to my interests. Warning: I will mark your papers up in red ink, my comments are not few or far between.

Geometry

I am very passionate about teaching Geometry in a pedagogically sound way. Though I get few requests for this subject (I have helped only 3-5 students with this material in the last year, so please bring your textbook along when coming to tutoring for Geometry), I believe in teaching with discovery and proof in this course. I am an experienced student in the subject (one upper-division Geometry course at UCLA and a few weeks on teaching Geometry in a Teaching course also at UCLA), but I do not yet have all of the theorems memorized, so bring your class materials, please.

Prealgebra

Over the past year I have gained valuable experience tutoring in this difficult-to-teach subject. Helping students prepare the mathematical foundation for the challenges of Algebra is very rewarding, and working with the material in Pre-Algebra is great because of how useful it will be in a student's everyday life.

Precalculus

I love Pre-Calculus. I have extensive experience tutoring in Pre-Calculus because it is one of the subjects I am most commonly asked to tutor. Helping students to form the mathematical foundation for the challenging material in Calculus is very rewarding, as is working with the talented high school students who take this course.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry, the branch of mathematics dealing with the relations of the sides and angles of triangles and sine, cosine and tangent, is fun to teach because of all of the real-life applications. I am a believer in teaching why unit circle trigonometry is so useful, how it is related to basic triangle trigonometry and where it comes from. I have tons of experience teaching this subject because it is an integral part of most Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus courses.

Writing

I love tutoring students in college-level essay writing! Although math education is my true passion, along the way to my degree in Mathematics I also learned how to communicate my ideas clearly, and organize my thoughts well in writing, skills necessary in the pursuit of mathematics. Not to mention that there were also several writing classes I took at UCLA. I'm a tough critic when it comes to writing, but if you work with me your papers will turn out better because of it.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
