My love of tutoring increases daily with each student I am able to inspire. After winning awards from the math
departments during college as well as being a member of Phi Theta Kappa and on the President's list, I decided to use my love of schooling to help others achieve their educational goals. I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring students one-on-one and in group settings. My hope is that through tutoring, students will become better equipped to take on the challenges of their studies and have an overall more enjoyable school experience.
I specialize in tutoring algebra
I & II, precalculus
, and biology
. My love of math and science has been the driving force in my educational journey. Whether you are an aspiring college graduate or a high school student, my goal is to help you learn the skills you need to be successful in your studies. During tutoring sessions, I stress the importance of being prepared for class, and I teach students how to study effectively and prepare for tests to ensure that their best efforts be put forth when it comes time to put what they know to the test.
In addition to tutoring math and science, I offer insight into techniques that will help students improve their learning through more efficient study habits. Brain function is an important aspect to any learning environment and enhancing it can make the difference between being an average student or an excellent one. Study habits, memorizing techniques, and overall information processing can be taught through a variety of methods that will help students spend their time more effectively grasping concepts and less time fumbling through notes unsure of what to study. Students who have trouble with information retention or "test anxiety" can learn ways to improve their memory and calm their nerves during a test. I have worked with many students to help them better retain information, achieve better test scores, and have an overall more confident, relaxed test taking experience. Like with anything, effective studying and test taking can be taught and learning it can be a lifesaver to struggling students!
Your overall satisfaction is my goal! I will try to do anything in my power to help you become a better equipped student. I encourage feedback after tutoring sessions, and I am open to suggestions on how to better equip you with the tools that you need to be successful.
Due to the overwhelming response, I am currently meeting students at a somewhat central location. I am meeting students off of HWY 210 and 95, exit 329. Contact me for details. I understand that this location is closer to some than others, but I am not able to reach the needs of the many students that contact me each week by driving from one location to the next. I am spending more time in the car than teaching, and I am having to turn down too many students. I appreciate the amazing inquiries I get every week, and I would love to help every student that contacts me reach their goals. This is my next step in trying to make that possible. Thank you all for understanding.
Overall, I have seen the frustration, defeat, and confusion in many students' eyes and helping to eliminate that drives me to be the best tutor I can be. If you are one of those students, don't wait to get help. Call me and get the help you deserve to be the best student you can be!
