I have had success teaching one-on-one math to all grade levels from elementary-college and that is something I enjoy doing and also have been a math tutor at UTA for 3 years. I have 11 years of playing experience on the clarinet, from middle school through college. I am majoring in music education and mathematics, and also in the UTeach program. I am a member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Golden Key International Honor Society, Tau Beta Sigma, Kappa Delta Pi, Alpha Lambda Delta, Texas Music Educators Association, National Association for Music Education, and the Association for Women in Mathematics. I would be able to help anyone who is seeking to learn clarinet or understand math.

Algebra 1

I took this class originally in 8th grade, Mr. Ho's class at Travis. In the end of that year, I was one of the only students that year to receive a high A for the class. He taught us a couple of ways to factor/distribute including FOIL and box methods. Since then, I have been helping my peers take, retake, and remember the subject.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is almost identical to the College Algebra subject that is required to be taken by almost all UTA students, in which, I tutor those that need the extra assistance whether it be for test prep or enrichment. I have made a sheet that has many of the formulas and processes found in this course, including many of the most common parent functions.

Trigonometry

The teacher for the trig class I took at UTA was the person who suggested that I started tutoring in the first place. Although I would help my peers in class here and there previously, she was the first person to directly say to me to "become a tutor." It wasn't until then that I saw it possible to become both a math and music teacher eventually. For trigonometry, I have made a 3 page formula sheet with all kinds of important info on it including the Pythagorean Theorem, half angle formulas, and...

Elementary Math

This past year (2012 to 2013) I have been in the Uteach program at UTA. In the fall, I taught at an Elementary school for a 4th grade class 3 times. During this time, I learned how to formulate formal 5e lesson plans and in these lessons, we were encouraged to make the Exploration an adventure so they can discover the objective on their own with some guidance from the teacher. This semester (Spring 2013) I am teaching a 7th grade math regulars class, which also takes place 3 times during this...

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had several years experience with teaching/helping elementary students do better in school. I was a PAL in high school where I went to an elementary school and spent time with my two students (1st and 4th grades). We would work on different things that they needed extra help on. The last couple of years I have tutored a few elementary students (4-6th grades) helping them with their math and music. Lastly in college, in the UTeach program, I prepared lesson plans and taught math and science...

Clarinet

I knew when I saw my brother play clarinet when I was 2 that I wanted to do that. I started out playing his old recorder in elementary school and when I started middle school I learned to play clarinet. I was also interested in playing all instruments but the Bb clarinet was the only one I played in middle school band. I made All City Band and also earned some awards at the Solo and Ensemble competition. When I went to high school I continued on with Bb clarinet but expanded to Eb clarinet and...

TAKS

The TAKS or STAAR math section of the test is a combination of simple to complex Algebra and Geometry that is given in elementary-high school. I made high commended scores on my TAKS. I will go over each part of the math test with the student and let them figure each problem out on their own. This will help them understand each problem fully and prepare them to do well on their test. I believe with practice and the right help everyone can do better on their tests and have been able to help other...
