Hello prospective client:
My name is Pelagie also known as Pmama. Originally from Rwanda, I have a Master's degree in Accounting from Auburn University, Alabama and 9 years of experience. I am a WyzAnt certified tutor for SAT Math; ACT Math; Trigonometry; Algebra II; Algebra I and Pre-algebra.
While all tutoring aims to improve grades, the keys are the process, manner and ways used to get the student there. My approach is based on due professional care in all steps from the first session to the last.
My training and professional experience prepared me for the task. I chose to focus on math because I feel I am blessed with the skills and competencies needed to help my students master or at least feel comfortable with this -sometimes labeled- intimidating subject matter.
As a team player, I am observant, inquisitive, making suggestions and coaching for effectiveness and efficiency. This requires commitment, ongoing study, dedication and hard work. What works best is engaging the student in active participation, reinforced with in depth reviews. I always end my sessions with a summary of key elements covered, and some homework to keep practicing. I encourage avoiding last minute surprises to minimize stress and maximize best results.
I count on being straightforward, open, honest and timely in communicating with all parties involved (student, parents, teacher and tutor). This is needed for grade trends and other important information and resources that can help everyone perform to their best potential.
I am looking forward to meeting with you and teaming with you as your tutor.
