Ivy League educated math tutor with excellent references available. I was valedictorian of my high school and earned a full scholarship to college. I am a CORNELL GRADUATE in engineering, whose second career is giving back by teaching children to love learning. Recently I obtained my Texas State teaching certification in Math 8-12, and I have taught TAKS Math classes and credit recovery in Math, Chemistry and Physics. My strength is making math seem simple.

My rates are reasonable and my reputation is EXCELLENT! Please contact me with any questions or concerns as I look forward to assisting your child with his or her learning needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I graduated from Cornell and because my major was civil/environmental engineering I took a lot of Chemistry courses. I even took Aquatic Chemistry as a liberal elective! When I learned about the atom in 6th grade I was hooked.

Discrete Math

With my extensive math background, including four semesters of Engineering Calculus, I feel confident I can tutor Discrete Math.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was valedictorian of my high school, and received a full scholarship to study engineering at Cornell University. When there was an engineering slump, I entered the teaching profession and taught Technical Math & Physics at Houston Community College. Later, when I wanted to reach younger minds, I was required to get my Texas Teaching Certification.

Please note that even though I majored in engineering,I received all A's in my college English classes and write very well. Also, I am a Texas Certified Math Teacher for grades 8-12. In Math, you are always building on what you learned before. Therefore, I must know my elementary math very well before excelling in higher math. Furthermore, I started tutoring other students at the age of 10 1/2. I remember what it was like learning the subjects and have a strength in breaking things down to the simplest level.

Geometry

I taught Credit Recovery in Geometry and TAKS Math at La Marque High School. To pass the exit exam a student must master Geometry.

Linear Algebra

I graduated from Cornell University with an engineering degree. Also I am a Texas certified Math Teacher (8-12)

Nutrition

I took a nutrition course in college and it is a subject I have always been passionate about. After all, the best way to save for retirement is to stay healthy so you won't have huge medical bills and eating right is a major factor, along with exercising and getting enough sleep. In my leisure I read many health magazines and can easily tell you what each vitamin and mineral does for your body.

TAKS

I have taught two years of TAKS Math a La Marque High School. I am very familiar with the ten objectives tested.
