I am a Master's level Certified Secondary Mathematics Teacher. I have been tutoring students in all subjects of middle, high school and college mathematics for twelve years, and have seen many students greatly improve their understanding, confidence, and grades in math as a result of my individual work with them.
I believe that students who understand the "why" underlying the mathematics come to appreciate its value and are therefore more successful. I work closely with each student to identify the keys to his or her comprehension, and then concentrate on helping his or her mind make the connections necessary for understanding and mastering the subject.
My subject expertise includes prealgebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, college algebra, statistics and calculus, as well as the newer GPS curriculum known as math I, II, III and IV. I can also support your preparation for the SAT or ACT. Please feel free to contact me to help you be successful.
As a secondary math teacher I have been teaching Geometry for 8 years. I am aware of how the subject is approached in the traditional way, as well as how it is now integrated with algebra in the new Common Core/GPS curriculum.
I teach the foundation of algebra, known as Pre-Algebra, to students of all ages and learning styles. I believe that explaining the underlying concepts of the topic is critical for students to be able to create their own understanding.
I am very familiar with the topics tested on the TEAS exam, and have helped several students receive passing scores. I teach mathematics and therefore know the math sections, and I am very familiar with the grammar that is assessed. I also have a background in healthcare and am familiar with the topics covered in the science section.
