I am a former high school mathematics teacher, having taught Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. Actually having classroom experience enhances my ability to recognize student errors and quickly move toward better comprehension. I have the capability, and it is my pleasure, to customize and write my own problem sets for each of my students. On many occasions, I provide my own additional note handouts to optimize mastery of the subject matter.

I have been tutoring Katy ISD students for 4 years and want to continue my 25 years of experience in educating and mentoring teens. Knowledgeable in both teaching and raising teenagers, I am patient and have a good working rapport with students and their parents. I am dedicated to the success of each individual and will always go the extra mile to teach and inspire my students to achieve their potential.

The skills I’ve acquired while teaching also enable me to better understand the dynamics of the student/teacher/parent relationship. I can use my expertise to not only help with improving math comprehension, but with anything else associated with math class.

Algebra 1

I have been teaching/tutoring Algebra for over 25 years. I use special techniques and "cute memorable sayings" to help students remember certain algebraic skills. I also point out possible mistakes during explanations to help avoid them while doing homework.

Algebra 2

I have been teaching/tutoring Algebra 2 for over 25 years. I use special techniques and "cute memorable sayings" to help students remember certain algebraic skills. I also point out possible mistakes during explanations to help avoid them while doing homework.

Geometry

Geometry has always been my favorite class to teach or tutor. It is a challenging subject, so I provide my own additional material to help conquer comprehension problems.

Precalculus

I have been tutoring precalculus for the past several years. As this course is challenging, seeing my students succeed proves extremely rewarding. Since curriculums are different, I plan each session according to the specific expectations of each individual school/teacher.

Trigonometry

I have been helping students with Trigonometry for several years. I am very knowledgeable about graphing sinusoidal equations, verifying trigonometric identities and solving trig equations.
