About Trina

For the past eight years, I've had the pleasure of teaching 8th grade Physical Science. I love working with students and helping them achieve their true potential. I have a gift for helping students simplify what they're learning, and gain confidence in themselves & the subject matter.

My family has recently relocated to Florida from California in order for my husband to pursue his career in engineering. I have decided to be a stay- at- home mother to take care of my family, but I genuinely miss interacting with students. I have a very flexible schedule and I'm excited to get started!

The major constraint of most students when it comes to mathematics is self confidence. I'm able to break down problems into obtainable steps, to help decrease stress & fear of math.

In Chemistry, I find that the subject is so abstract that it is hard for students to relate to it. I'm able to connect topics to real life situations, hence making it much easier to understand. I also, encourage hands-on manipulatives to help fully understand more complicated lessons.

Feel free to contact me, I'm willing to work with your schedule. Is prefer to meet somewhere public, with minimal distractions. When you contact me, let me know what is challenging you & I can come up with creative solutions to help!
