Hello! My name is Sonnie.
Math has always been my favorite subject growing up. Throughout my years in school, I was always helping friends and fellow classmates with any math problems they had. I received such great feedback from my friends (and their test scores) that I began tutoring as a part-time job. I have helped students of all ages in math - from middle school up into college. The two main subjects that I specialize in are algebra 1 and algebra 2 (up to college level courses) and any math before (K-6th).
My tutoring sessions are well-rounded, clear and concise, and target your student's needs for the best results! I have worked with a wide range of students, all with different needs, and I have gained valuable experience working with each one. I have a lot of patience and do not get frustrated easily. If a student isn't understanding some material, I approach it differently in numerous way until it finally makes sense to them and we get that "Aha!" moment of clarity.
I am very patient and shape a program and teaching method that fits to each student's needs and weaknesses to see the best results for each individual! The longer I work with the a student, the easier it is for me to underline their weaknesses and develop a program that can strengthen them. Good test taking skills are a huge factor in positive results. A student may understand the math, but struggle in a test taking environment - nerves, time crunch, feeling rushed, and unexpected problems are all very common problems students encounter when taking tests. Not only do I help my students understand the math, but I also teach them helpful test taking skills to combat any of those problems previously listed. I also teach good studying and note taking habits to help reinforce the material we learn about outside of our tutoring sessions. These tools that I teach my students are not only beneficial to understanding the math, but can also be applicable to future classes and problems - because good studying habits are ALWAYS good to have. Once a student finds a study method that works them, it's value is priceless.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time - I would be more than happy to answer them! I hope I have the wonderful opportunity of working with your student to help enrich his/her academic life!
