After 30 years of working in the office, I decided to go back to school. I finished all the math I could at Antelope Valley College and in May 2011 I finally received my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a Math emphasis from Grand Canyon University, which is located in Phoenix. I completed those last two years with GCU online while working.

I tutored at a local charter school working with at-risk students for four years. My goal is to help my students understand the math they are learning, not just get enough knowledge to pass a test. Everything they learn they will use the next day, and the next. Math doesn't have to be hard, just don't give in to your fears!

In November I will start my graduate program in Education. I am looking forward to being back in school.

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.

Algebra 1

I tutored Algebra I students for four years at a local charter school. Students vary in ages from 12 to 19, from middle school to high school. It is probably the math I know and enjoy the most.

Geometry

Geometry is my "other" favorite math -- I enjoy the visual factors involved in Geometry. But beware, there is a lot of Algebra involved in Geometry!
