I am an experienced mathematics and science specialist. I am here to share with you my knowledge and experience, provide top-quality instruction, and help in the best way possible with whatever ails you! My qualifications include 19 years of experience as a teaching assistant and a substitute instructor at Austin Community College and 16 years of experience as a private tutor. Additionally, I work at El Centro College in Dallas as a mathematics, physics, and chemistry tutor and a chemistry teaching assistant. Furthermore, I graduated with a degree in applied mathematics and a 4.00 G.P.A., earned another in liberal science (also with a 4.00 G.P.A.), and am planning to pursue one more degree in either physics or applied statistics.
Additional background academic information includes:
* Membership in the Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society (Alpha Delta Pi chapter)and the Who's Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges and Universities honors organization
* Straight A's in all of my mathematics and science courses (engineering calculus, business calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, general statistics, general chemistry, and general physics)
I have the ability to provide students with the most professional instruction possible and communicate classroom material effectively and efficiently. This helps students become creative and independent thinkers and succeed in their courses and careers. I have been frequently complimented on my organizational and communication skills and level of patience in working with students. Through my methodical, step-by-step explanations, detailed examples, and study aids, students comprehend mathematics more effectively. Additionally, my calm and professional demeanor and caring personality instills in students greater peace of mind and a can-do attitude. This leads to greater retention, increased self-esteem, and improved grades. I feel that I can provide students with the best possible instruction and the necessary tools and confidence to help them succeed not only in their math courses but also in other areas of study. Give me a try; allow my experience to work for you. You will be glad you did!
Prior to beginning lessons, if so desired, an in-person meeting may be scheduled for registered WyzAnt students to discuss student-teacher expectations. Moreover, students' parents may sit in on sessions to see how they are conducted, see what my teaching style is like, and gauge their comfort with me as an instructor.
Post-session review guides based on subject matter covered during sessions are also offered. If you would like to have these regularly as a means of either test preparation or additional practice, then please mention so upon lesson's end.
My hourly rate is negotiable; please contact me to discuss possibilities. Furthermore, discounts are given for multiple subjects as follows: $40.00 hourly for two subjects and $35.00 hourly for three or more subjects.
Regarding my cancellation/postponement policy, a minimum of half a day's notice must be given (no charge will be assessed); however, exceptions are made for dire or unforeseen situations (e.g., illnesses and family emergencies). Otherwise, the client's account will be charged according to the following schedule:
Cancellation/postponement 6-12 hours: one half-hour's session time
Cancellation/postponement less than 6 hours: one hour's session time
Special note: I also assist with GED, GRE, ACT, and SAT test preparation but for only the mathematics section of these exams.
