My love of tutoring increases daily with each student I am able to inspire. After winning awards from the math and science departments during college as well as being a member of Phi Theta Kappa and on the President's list, I decided to use my love of schooling to help others achieve their educational goals. I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring students one-on-one and in group settings. My hope is that through tutoring, students will become better equipped to take on the challenges of their studies and have an overall more enjoyable school experience.

I specialize in tutoring algebra I & II, precalculus, statistics, chemistry, and biology. My love of math and science has been the driving force in my educational journey. Whether you are an aspiring college graduate or a high school student, my goal is to help you learn the skills you need to be successful in your studies. During tutoring sessions, I stress the importance of being prepared for class, and I teach students how to study effectively and prepare for tests to ensure that their best efforts be put forth when it comes time to put what they know to the test.

In addition to tutoring math and science, I offer insight into techniques that will help students improve their learning through more efficient study habits. Brain function is an important aspect to any learning environment and enhancing it can make the difference between being an average student or an excellent one. Study habits, memorizing techniques, and overall information processing can be taught through a variety of methods that will help students spend their time more effectively grasping concepts and less time fumbling through notes unsure of what to study. Students who have trouble with information retention or "test anxiety" can learn ways to improve their memory and calm their nerves during a test. I have worked with many students to help them better retain information, achieve better test scores, and have an overall more confident, relaxed test taking experience. Like with anything, effective studying and test taking can be taught and learning it can be a lifesaver to struggling students!

Your overall satisfaction is my goal! I will try to do anything in my power to help you become a better equipped student. I encourage feedback after tutoring sessions, and I am open to suggestions on how to better equip you with the tools that you need to be successful.

Due to the overwhelming response, I am currently meeting students at a somewhat central location. I am meeting students off of HWY 210 and 95, exit 329. Contact me for details. I understand that this location is closer to some than others, but I am not able to reach the needs of the many students that contact me each week by driving from one location to the next. I am spending more time in the car than teaching, and I am having to turn down too many students. I appreciate the amazing inquiries I get every week, and I would love to help every student that contacts me reach their goals. This is my next step in trying to make that possible. Thank you all for understanding.

Overall, I have seen the frustration, defeat, and confusion in many students' eyes and helping to eliminate that drives me to be the best tutor I can be. If you are one of those students, don't wait to get help. Call me and get the help you deserve to be the best student you can be!

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.

Algebra 1

I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring pre-algebra, intermediate algebra, and college algebra. My love for math comes across in my enthusiasm for teaching this subject. I currently spend about 20 hours each week tutoring algebra at the local college and many more hours one-on-one with students who require more personalized sessions. I have good organized methods for teaching even the most complex problems in a simplistic fashion to ensure comprehension from every student. Through practice, you too can learn how to tackle the complex mathematical equations of algebra.

Algebra 2

I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring students the concepts of algebra. My love for math comes across in my enthusiasm for teaching this subject. I currently spend about 20 hrs. each week tutoring algebra at the local college and many more hours one-on-one with students who require more personalized sessions. I have good organized methods for teaching even the most complex problems in a simplistic fashion to ensure comprehension from every student. Through practice, you too can learn how to tackle the complex mathematical equations of algebra.

Biology

I have a unique, enthusiastic interest in Biology. I currently tutor the concepts of Biology and Microbiology between 10-20 hours a week at the local college. I am continuing my education in Biology next fall to advance my knowledge and ability in the field of Medical Science. I have been recognized for my excellence in the field of science by receiving a Certificate of Achievement award from the science department and president of my college. My passion in this field comes out in my ability to help others grasp the interesting concepts of the wonderful world of Biology.

Chemistry

Chemistry is a neat, but challenging subject. The complexity of our world can be examined and uniquely processed through the techniques used in chemistry. Unfortunately, for some, the math involved can be a nightmare and cause an otherwise interesting subject to be avoided altogether. If you are interested in chemistry, but the math has got you down, or you are just trying to get through another prerequisite, don't hesitate to contact me. I have spent hundreds of hours working through the multifaceted equations of chemistry and look forward to helping you make this subject a more enjoyable one to endure.

Geometry

Believe it or not, geometry can actually be a fun way to examine the world around us. Everywhere we look, we use shapes and angles to help us determine distance and our proximity to objects around us. Whether you are driving a car or building a house, we all make decisions based on these concepts. I have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience and would love the opportunity to help you to learn the interesting concepts of geometry and tackle the subject head on.

Prealgebra

I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring Prealgebra. My love for math comes across in my enthusiasm for teaching this subject. I currently spend about 20 hrs. each week tutoring algebra at the local college and many more hours one-on-one with students who require more personalized sessions. I have good organized methods for teaching even the most complex problems in a simplistic fashion to ensure comprehension from every student. Through practice, you too can learn how to tackle the complex mathematical equations of algebra.

Precalculus

The subject of precalculus can be a challenging one. Understanding the concepts of algebra 2 and trigonometry are paramount in getting through this course and moving on to calculus. Precalculus takes you through an in-depth look at functions, graphs, and the relationships between geometric shapes (mainly triangles and circles). This can make for a frustrating and challenging course, but can be accomplished, even excelled at, with the right basics. I have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience and would enjoy the opportunity to help you with the difficult equations of precalculus. If you are a struggling student faced with the challenges of precalculus, give me a call and let's get started tackling this course today!

SAT Math

The SAT is one of the most important tests you will ever take. Scoring well on it can give you the edge you need to beat the competition and get into the college of your dreams. The three components to the SAT are critical reading, writing, and math. If math is your weakest link, don't worry, I can help! I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring the subjects seen on the SAT. Mastering the skills of basic arithmetic, algebra I & II, and geometry will give you the tools you need to score better and become a more attractive candidate for the college of your choosing. If you are an aspiring college applicant, ready to take your SAT, let me help you to get a jump start into the next phase of your educational journey with the confidence you deserve.

Statistics

Statistics can be a fun and exciting way to examine the world around us. I enjoy tutoring statistics because it is typically a math that everyone has experienced in their daily lives. From sports stats to business reports, statistics can been seen on the television, in magazines, or on the internet daily. Teaching the concepts of statistics can be challenging, but if looked at in the right manner, it can become more easily comprehended and may even seem useful at times. With a little help, you too can start to make sense of the statistical world around you.

Study Skills

In addition to tutoring Math and Science, I offer insight into techniques that will help students improve their learning through more efficient study habits. Brain function is an important aspect to any learning environment and enhancing it can make the difference between being an average student or an excellent one. Study habits, memorizing techniques, and overall information processing can be taught through a variety of methods that will help students spend their time more effectively grasping concepts and less time fumbling through notes unsure of what to study. Students who have trouble with information retention or "test anxiety" can learn ways to improve their memory and calm their nerves during a test. I have worked with many students to help them better retain information, achieve better test scores, and have an overall more confident, relaxed test taking experience. Like with anything, effective studying and test taking can be taught and learning it can be a lifesaver to struggling students!
