Math is more than just a subject to me, it is my passion! I am a friendly person and I work well with people. I have a passion for teaching and tutoring, and I love to impart the knowledge that I have onto others who may be struggling or just need a little extra help.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Math Education and I also hold a current teaching certificate. I have been teaching and tutoring these subjects for years, and I still love to come up with new ways to learn and digest information. I hope to help my students set goals for themselves and continually reach them as they strive to better themselves in every way.
Having a good foundation in Algebra is so important. As I have taught classes from Algebra to Calculus, I have seen how the fundamentals learned in Algebra run throughout all math classes. I have always loved Algebra and in turn have loved teaching and tutoring it. Starting with the simple fundamental ideas of addition and multiplication and building on that with solving equations is at the core of how I can help one grow their Algebra skills.
Once the fundamentals of Algebra I have been fully established, Algebra II is crucial to the continued growth of one's math skills. Algebra II really opens the doors and connects bridges between all different levels of math including Trigonometry and Calculus. In tutoring Algebra II I believe it is important to explore the many facets and further solidify one's Algebraic knowledge.
Geometry isn't just about shapes. It's about understand numbers and how they are manipulated with connecting lines. While tutoring and teaching Geometry I have found that a focus on logic and proofs is crucial. Being able to make sense of the rules given to you in this class is something that can be helpful through all facets of life.
Having a strong foundation in the basic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, is such an important part to succeeding in Prealgebra and all other maths after that. When tutoring Prealgebra, I focus hard on these skills in addition to a complete and total understand of fractions and decimals. With that core knowledge, all other levels of math become easier as these are at the base of them all.
I have taught Precalculus on a high school and college level. It is a tough time in math because things are changing from Algebra to Calculus. I take a gentle and fresh approach to learning the topic so that the student doesn't lose confidence. I believe a strong effort and tying previous knowledge to the current information is very important.
Taking the SAT can be a very stressful and intimidating experience for a high school student and I would like to help you alleviate that stress! Being able to feel comfortable and not rushed while test taking is one of the keys to success. I can help you with techniques and content knowledge so that with the proper time and effort, you will be successful taking the math portion of this test!
Trigonometry is a big change of pace on the math road. It is more than shapes and proofs, and reaches far into the real world. Trigonometry paints a picture of conic sections and triangles that make up so much of math in the world around us. I have taught and grown to love trigonometry through out the years. Because of my own passion for it, I love to help others understand and love it as well.
Great Tutor With Kids — Ashley was very personable, with a good attitude and demeanor working with kids. My 11 year old son took to her right away, and even asked me to leave the room during his first session. When he said that, I knew he was very comfortable with her. Ashley got right down to business and made learning fun and interesting for my son. It paid off. He had a test the very next day, and his grade was impro ...
