I am a wife, a mother of three, a Christian and a math tutor. I love all of these parts of my life and find joy in helping others. I especially love to see them learn to do material that seemed so hard in the past. I've been thrilled to see the students I've worked with make passing grades in their math class, make high scores on SAT's or achieve a 'B' or 'A' for the first time ever in math.It's been a privilege to share the joy of watching them succeed.

I am willing to lower my rate if the cost of getting your son or daughter the help they need is going to be a financial strain. Your decision to show your child that you are willing to arrange for help for them will show them how important you believe their education truly is. I will work with you and with the teacher to be a reliable source of help. I will be flexible in the days we meet, the time we meet and with any factor that makes our sessions fit into your schedule. You and your child will be able to reach me when a question comes up.

MY BACKGROUND:

I've tutored for 30 years, going back to when I was in high school. I attended Georgia State University and received a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Actuarial Science, graduating magna cum laude. I worked in that field until I had children. I homeschooled my three children through the elementary and middle school years. My oldest daughter graduated valedictorian from high school, went to college on a full scholarship and graduated summa cum laude. My son graduated from high school with honors and also received a full scholarship. He is a senior now at Point University. My youngest daughter is a senior in high school and she is in the top 2% of her class.

I've substituted for math teachers at our local middle school and I've taught math to groups of homeschool students. I have volunteered as a math tutor at our local middle school for two years and at the local high school for one year. I've also volunteered at the United Methodist Children's Home. I have assisted students studying for their GED exams. In the past 12 months, I have been fortunate in that I have tutored students in elementary, middle and high school grades as well as college students in their 20’s and in their 40’s. I also enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.

GENERAL GUIDELINES:

I tutor in my home and the parents have the choice of waiting in our den (while reading or watching TV), waiting in their cars or running errands during the sessions. I have MS (multiple sclerosis) and can not drive from one student's house to another. Because the parent has to drive to my house and helps me in that way, I offer some extra time past an hour at no charge. Also, I charge less than most tutors with my years of experience.

THE FIRST SESSION:

The first session can vary depending on the situation that the student is in. If your son or daughter has a quiz or test very soon, I will find a way to meet with you immediately. We will discuss the areas of math where there are obvious strengths and the areas that are troublesome. There is no charge for the time spent before the tutoring begins. I have found repeatedly that it helps put us all at ease to sit together and talk about goals..

I will correspond with the teacher to stay current with all dates of upcoming assessments and to ask the teacher's opinion of any noticeable problems in the class. I will ask how much your child is participating in class, if there are distractions from the other students, and if the teacher has some suggestions that can be tried.

I like to spend 15 to 20 minutes at the beginning of the first session working some general math problems that shouldn't be too difficult. It helps me determine how much material from previous years is being retained and how the student goes about solving a problem.

LENGTH OF THE SESSIONS:

For any session, if the tutoring time lasts 10 or 15 minutes over an hour, you are only charged for an hour. Naturally more benefit is achieved if we can meet twice a week but we can certainly just meet once weekly if that's what works best for you.

The student will have my email address and phone number so they can ask me questions. I will show your son or daughter several math sites.with games to build accuracy in working problems. I will also be looking for ones that that target any difficulties going on.

I'm blessed that my oldest daughter attended college on a full scholarship, that my second child is currently attending college on a full scholarship and my youngest daughter has excelled in all of her honors and AP classes. I know that finding help for them as soon as a problem arose was critical to keeping their grades up. I truly hope I can be of help to you. If I can't, I do hope you find the help you are looking for here at WyzAnt.
Sincerely, Tracey M
