I love helping students through tutoring and have been a practicing tutor for years. My goal as your tutor is to make sure you fully understand the concepts surrounding your questions. If you're not comfortable with a topic we'll work on it from every possible angle until it clicks for you.

I recently received my Master's degree in Medical Sciences at the University of North Texas Health Science Center and before that graduated with magna cum laude honors from the University of Houston in Biology. I have been an official tutor at the University of Houston for over 3 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. Usually when I tutor my focus has been in Science and Mathematics, but my minor in Creative Writing and passion for writing have also resulted in helping to proof read countless essays and papers.

If there's a topic you're interested in but it isn't listed below contact me and there's a good chance I can help with it, especially if it's a lower level of any of the topics listed.

TSI Exam Students: Yes I do tutor for the Math portion of the TSI exam. As the exam is new and there are no published resources that do a good job of teaching and explaining the material covered, I have developed a structured curriculum that is guaranteed to improve your score and increase your confidence in your math abilities.

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.

STAAR

The STAAR Exams range from elementary all the way up to 9th grade. I have not only mastered all of these subjects and their courses, but I have been tutoring various students for their respective STAAR exams for much of my time as a tutor. Many of the concepts taught are fundamental to the grade level and all levels of the STAAR exam cover concepts equivalent to or are a lower degree than the lessons I have previously tutored for.

As an undergraduate I took mathematics courses up to Calculus 3, so I have a strong grasp on the fundamentals of math leading up to that, all of which are covered in the STAAR exams. Additionally I have been a regular tutor for years so I have a solid foundation of walking students step by step through these fundamentals.

Beyond the mathematics portion there is a reading portion which I would also be excellent at tutoring for as well. I have a background in the literary arts with my Minor in Creative Writing, and I have helped students in standardized tests ranging all the way up to the MCAT.
