In my eight years of teaching I have been successful in helping students achieve their goals as it relates to various mathematics curricula, such as 75% (24 out of 32 students) who passed the Integrated Algebra Regents Examination on their first attempt with a 65 or higher.

Another instance was out of the 20 students school-wide who received at least a 65 on the Geometry Regents examination, 60% (12 students) were my pupils, including the two highest scoring students.

Consistently obtaining passing scores for first-time test takers has not been my only strength, but I have created effective structures that have addressed pertinent issues for students who needed additional time to meet their mathematical goals. Just an example is 62% (16 out of 26 students) who previously failed the Integrated Algebra exam at least twice, passed with a minimum of a 65 by the end of two semesters.

Additionally, I received a 90% or above on the following content tests: Pre-algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry.

I would love to help you build your confidence in mathematics whether you are strong in math or if you may loathe it. Check out how I would help you by viewing actual math questions that I have answered for other students in the "Resources" tab. The math lady will be to YOUR rescue!

Amazing! Simply the best tutor I've worked with on WyzAnt. Vanessa is extremely professional and provides feedback after each session. This allows for me to use positive reinforcement and ensure my nieces are utilizing the skills they acquire doing the session! My nieces who receive tutoring are very happy with the lessons and feel comfortable with the material. I remember reading over an email Vanessa ...
