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 watched every single student I've worked with attain the goal that either the student had or the parents had. I've been thrilled to see them all pass the difficult math class, make high scores on SAT's, achieve an 'A' for the first time ever in math or whatever that student's goal was. 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 in class, when a homework assignment is difficult and when they need a pep talk before a test. I will talk with you about any factors that you think need to be addressed whether it's study skills, a boost in confidence to ask questions in class, drills of basic formulas or managing their time.

MY BACKGROUND:

I home-schooled my own three children for grades 1-7. I tutored elementary, middle, high school and college students during the years my children were growing. I also began tutoring home-schooled students. When my youngest entered the school system, I had much more free time on my hands so I volunteered at the local middle school and high school, helping students who were behind in their math class. I found out several facts about the public school system :
- Teachers are unfairly overworked and it's impossible for them to make a point of spending a great deal of time helping one student at a time.
- If a student gets behind in math, the problem will snowball quickly because the students are given frequent "checks" to see that they remember what they have learned so far. Also, the material builds on itself and a math topic taught in the fall might be used the entire school year. If your child had trouble with something like fractions then he or she will lose points off a test month after month when that topic reappears on a quiz or test. That brings their grade down over and over.
- Students would rather die than raise their hand in class.

I accepted an offer to teach geometry to a small group of home-schooled students during the 2012-2013 academic year. This really opened my eyes to the need for outstanding study skills.

I have also worked as a substitute for math teachers in middle school.

GENERAL GUIDELINES:

I tutor in my kitchen and the parents either wait in our den (and read or watch TV), sit in their cars or run 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 in the den and talk about what the problems are and how long math has been difficult.

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.

There will be homework from me and I will need someone to check that it's being attempted on a regular basis. The student will have my email address and phone number so they can ask me questions. I would rather receive an email and help work out a problem (at no charge) than for the student to struggle with a problem and postpone finding out how to solve it. 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
