CSUMB, B.A. (Mathematics)
CSUMB teaching credential program (Enrolled)
I have a BS in Mathematics, and I have been tutoring since 2010. I have volunteered in middle school and high schools, worked as a tutor at colleges, and worked as a private tutor for home school students. I got 2/3 of the way to a credential when I decided that trying to teach 20+ people at a time was not for me. I like working with people in small groups and one on one, so that I can really focus on their needs and help them with math anxiety and building understanding. I've worked with students who have ADHD, ASD, dyslexia, short term memory problems and auditory processing issues-- I'm not an expert on treatments, but I am flexible and focused on finding *your* comfortable way to work as a student.
My favorite thing about tutoring is being there when the pieces fall into place. Seeing someone light up and say, "Math makes sense! It's supposed to make sense!" is the best thing. Most people hate math because of the technical language and lack of connections between ideas. I'm able to translate between math and plain English and help you connect concepts between lessons and help bring in real-world understanding.
I not only love to tutor; I love coffee, tea, and baking-- if you want to be tutored at my place, there will be free snacks. I have a BS in Mathematics, and I have been tutoring since 2010.

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.
