About Holly

Currently offering tutoring for UCSC’s AMS/ECON 11A.

I have over 500 hours of experience tutoring because I enjoy doing it and I excel at adjusting my tutoring to make the math make sense to the person I’m explaining it to.

I demonstrated that I know math well enough to teach it in public high schools by passing the two required California Subject Exams for Teachers (CSETs) of math, as well as the third optional CSET covering Calculus and the History of Mathematics. I also did well in the math classes I took to complete a Computer Science degree at UC San Diego.

To learn, students must feel comfortable, interested, and challenged. When students are too challenged they feel overwhelmed and discouraged. When students are not interested or challenged they get bored. I am expert at finding each person's sweet spot where s/he is comfortable, interested and challenged - where learning feels less like work and more like play.

Learning can be fun, not frustrating!

Wyzant offers discounts, and sometimes I do too. Whether or not I discount my rate depends on several factors, including the math, how busy I am already, when appointments will be and how far I'll need to drive to get to them.

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.

Elementary Math

I have two years of experience helping 4th and 5th graders with their homework in an after school program. I also taught elementary math to high school students for a year and a half. I often recommend web sites where students enjoy reviewing and practicing the basic math I teach them.

Prealgebra

I demonstrated my knowledge of mathematics by passing all the tests required of high school math teachers, including calculus, but that is not as important as my extensive experience tutoring prealgebra. I helped 4th and 5th grade students do their math homework after school every day for two years before I became a Wyzant tutor.
