Arizona State University (Finance)
For the past seven years, I have helped hundreds of high school students pass the math AIMs (a high-stake test that includes algebra I & II, geometry I & II) with great success. As a math tutor, I have enjoyed working with state-authorized providers for AIMs on a one-to-one basis as well as small groups with students of various levels of learning skills. One of my greatest strengths in working with hundreds of students over the years is my ability to quickly ascertain areas in math the student most needs improving and adapt accordingly. Making math easier to understand for the student is my goal, as well as helping students to apply critical thinking skills to new problems.
I have passed the AEPA (10 Mathematics, now the NES NT304) and am Highly Qualified in math per No Child Left Behind (NCLB) standards. I hold a B.S., in Finance, and am Laubach Literacy certified for volunteering.
I'm flexible on meeting times and require a six hour cancellation notice.
Personal interests include chess (USCF rated), and variations of chess such as blitz, black forest, and bughouse. Racquetball, pool/billiards, tennis, bowling, and table tennis are other activities that I wish I had more time for.
Something about me that almost no one knows; I’m the first person in Arizona to get INTACS eye implants to correct nearsightedness. A type of permanent ‘contacts’ surgically implanted so that I could play racquetball without needing to wear glasses.
Thank you for reading this and I hope to be able to answer any questions you may have. I looking forward to helping you in the near future.

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.
