I am currently studying at Marquette University in the Clinical and Mental Health Counseling master's program specializing in addiction. I plan on continuing my education after the master's program to earn my PhD in counselor education. I am focusing my personal research on resilience in children and adolescent substance abuse.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a B.S. psychology major and mathematics minor. I have been very successful in my psychology courses and I am confident in my understanding of theories and schools of thought. Although it is my minor, math has always been a strong point. I served as a supplemental instructor in discrete mathematics for my last semester at Whitewater. In addition to tutoring I work as a dental assistant and at a psychiatric hospital. When I am not working, you’ll find me singing, studying, or exercising! I am patient, positive, and here to help! If you are frustrated working on a problem, I will be right there with you until you fully understand it. I am passionate about education and I want to help make your classes easier for you.

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.

Discrete Math

I tutored Discrete Mathematics my Senior year of college. I hosted weekly sessions outside of class to go over subjects within the class that the students were struggling with. I have practiced and worked with many different proofs. I am familiar with setup of proofs and the logic that is covered in the class. I sat in this class twice (one for the semester I took it, the second time to be an in class tutor). My grades were exceptional and I am very comfortable with Discrete math.

Prealgebra

I tutored 3 students this past summer in prealgebra. I have done extensive review in trigonometry and graphing. I am very confident working with the subjects covered in prealgebra.

Great tutor: accommodating and knowledgeable — Holly worked with me for 2 weeks for a mental health nursing class. She was accommodating to meet halfway between Waukesha and Milwaukee which made it an easy ride for both of us. I needed help memorizing and learning the information in a different way than my teacher had been doing; so Holly worked with me and taught me different methods (such as drawing pictures) to help me remember and learn th ...
