Don't let a math class keep you from achieving your goals--let me help!

I am a grad student in Mathematics, currently taking a break from classes. I also have a B.S. in Secondary Math Education. Although I am very skilled at many different types of math, more importantly I am very able to help YOU become skilled in the math understanding that is important to your goals.

I have worked with math students for 11 years now, helping in many different areas including: homework help, test preparation (Kaplan Instructor), conceptual understanding, remedial review and support, and various calculator and computer mathematics software usages (TI 89, Maple, Matlab, etc.)

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Discrete Math

Discrete Math can be one of the most challenging of undergrad math courses. It is reminiscent of geometry, in that it has a main focus of "why", rather than the "what and where" of algebra and calculus.

The symbolic language of Discrete Math is usually a bit challenging for most students. Upside down E's and A's can be confusing...Always....Sometimes... Getting to the details of each statement and it's composite statement of undeniable conclusion, can take more creativity than writing music or literature.

Understanding in this course helps one define truth in other non-numerical topics as well.

Finite Math

Finite Math is a summary course that covers the types of real world applications that most adults will need in this day and age. It is a course designed to challenge the student's translation abilities between the world we live in, and the mathematics we can use in it to make good decisions and choices in our lives. Most often, this type of student will need to engage the new ideas of ambiguity and possibility, where they had previously only needed calculations and absolutes.

I work with my students in this class, by relying on the ultimate question of, "does it make sense?". In this way, we can understand the truth of the language of mathematics, instead of relying on memorized recipes to cook up some numbers.

Study Skills

I have many years' (10+) tutoring experience with students ranging in ages from 6 - 52. I hold a degree in secondary education from UNR, and have been able to establish a strong core of study skill facilitation to accompany my math tutoring and lessons. My overall study methods involve the mantra, "if you don't have a plan, then you are planning to fail". After addressing any organizational concerns, I evaluate each student's personal learning basis...visual, kinetic, auditory, etc. I conduct each lesson in a compatible way with their personal learning style. The key to their success is usually a direct result of each student's ability to identify and understand how they "get it" and then to consistently pursue understanding in THAT/THOSE way(s).

Wonderful tutor! Knows her math and knows how to teach it. — As the parent of a high school junior who was struggling with his second semester pre-calculus curriculum, I hired Paige through WyzAnt Tutoring Services. She was recommended to us by a friend, and I was impressed with her background and experience. My son’s performance in pre-calculus had dropped to a C average during his second semester and I was looking for some additional support to help him ...
