About Billie


Bio

I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Many of my students have gone from D's with no understanding to A's with the ability to peer tutor their classmates. It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student."

I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Many of my students have gone from D's with no understanding to A's with the ability to peer tutor their classmates. It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student."

I look for the concepts that students may not have totally grasped and help them get up to speed so that future classes are easy and fun. Most of my students continue to call me back on an "as needed" basis when they don't understand some one concept in class, even in college. I frequently am recommended by parents to friends and family members.

Subjects

Precalculus,

Precalculus

In my opinion, Pre-Calculus is the most difficult math class offered at the high school level. The trigonometry portion presents many new and difficult concepts, but the algebra portion takes everything from Algebra II deeper making everything very complex and solving problems you don't really see any reason to solve. In truth, the main objective is to solidify your Algebra skills. Most of the problems that are presented are much more easily solved in Calculus next year.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

There are several easy things that you can do to help your SAT math score. Knowing the Pythagorean triples will make several problems easier. Understanding basic Geometry, the formulas, and principles are also helpful. Using a book to learn the types of problems is good, memorizing the specific problems is not. Once you know which problems you are having problems with, it is important to learn how to solve all similar problems. The books are always easier than the test.

Astonishing Math Tutor

Billie is a very patient and highly experience tutor. She got our daughter, a high school senior, back on track from a very big Math brocker that was crippling her performance. Billie helped our daughter sort through and gain confidence once again. We highly recommend Billie to help overcome the difficulties of complex math. Astonishing!

Mayumi, 14 lessons with Billie

Excellent teacher, knowledgeable and patient.

Billie helped explain formulas so I could understand how to solve them. She was knowledgeable on various math concepts and was able to help with word problem. Very patient and good at explaining. I would definitely recommend her to anybody.

Candice , 5 lessons with Billie

Patient and knowledgeable tutor.

My daughter was happy and immediately had more confidence with her trig. This was only after the first lesson, which gave me the confidence to schedule another one.

Good Tutor

Billie has a good knowledge of her subject. She also understands what is it that is causes the most problems for her students. She has a clear idea of where my son needs the most help. Her approach is patient and quiet.

Billie is great.

Billie has been working with my son for almost 2 months now. She talks to him and questions him to ascertain what he is struggling with. His algebra grade is going up steadily now. And the fact that Billie can come to our home to do the tutoring sessions is amazing. My schedule varies every week and I cannot commit to driving him to lessons. The fact that she comes to our house is a Godsend.

Jeanine, 8 lessons with Billie

Excellent Experience!

Billie has helped me a ton in my AP Calculus class. She had a thorough understanding of every concept I needed help on and she is very pleasant. I highly recommend her.
