My name is Lindsey. I just received my credential in single subject mathematics from Cal State University San Marcos. I completed two semesters of student teaching throughout my credential program. I was a student teacher in a high school Geometry class at Valley Continuation High School in Escondido. I was also a student teacher at High Tech Middle school in North County working with 6th graders. I was able to gain diverse experiences throughout my student teaching that allowed me to work with many different students with learning disabilities. I primarily help my students with math. The subjects that I have taught my students are algebra, pre-algebra, CAHSEE math prep, geometry, and middle-school level math. I have great experience working with students who have learning disabilities such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, and ED. I finished my bachelor's degree in liberal studies with an emphasis in math.
I believe that in order to tutor in a subject you must be passionate about it... and indeed I am! I love teaching each and every day, and I am sure I would love to tutor you as well!
I highly believe that Algebra 1 is the fundamental math class that you just can't miss. Algebra 1 covers many different topics that are just built upon in Geometry, Algebra 1, pre-calculus, and beyond. Once you gain an understanding in Algebra 1, your math success will skyrocket! I have been tutoring Algebra 1 to high school and middle school students at a probation school for the past two and a half years as a Teaching Assistant. Most of my students transition to alternative schools or just try to get their GED because they are so credit deficient. My students have been able to pass their CAHSEE and GED tests with a thorough Algebra understanding. When you are able to conquer Algebra, you can conquer the world!
Algebra 2 can't be properly understood without a thorough understanding of Algebra 1. It makes sense, but in actuality the concepts and functions of Algebra 2 are built upon Algebra 1. I understand the need for a strong foundation in Algebra 1 and can provide that for a great outcome in Algebra 2!
I have tutored two brothers in preparing for their ASVAB and after being tutored both brothers were significantly able to raise their score and qualify for the careers that they wanted all along. In order to beat the ASVAB you need a strong foundation in percentages and algebra, which can also be used in the real world!
In order to be good at math, you need a good foundation! This is what elementary mathematics provides for all students. Once you get a good head start, you will most likely have a great outcome in higher level mathematics! I understand this and will work hard to ensure that you will have a good head start!
In transitioning from Algebra 1 to Geometry, many students can get lost because Geometry is a completely different method of thinking. Algebra is all about critical/abstract thinking while Geometry introduces visual thinking. I understand this and will make sure you are a visual thinker that is succeeding!
Great confidence booster — Lindsey has been working with my 12 year old daughter for a few weeks now. I can already see a change in her confidence. My daughter even looks forward to her tutoring lessons. Lindsey has a very comfortable way with her and I am very pleased with her abilities. ...
