I have worked with math students for 15 years now, helping in many different areas including: homework help, test preparation (Kaplan Instructor), conceptual understanding, remedial review and support, and various calculator and computer mathematics software usages (TI 89, Maple, Matlab, etc.)

I have many years' (10+) tutoring experience with students ranging in ages from 6 - 52. I hold a degree in secondary education from UNR, and have been able to establish a strong core of study skill facilitation to accompany my math tutoring and lessons. My overall study methods involve the mantra, "if you don't have a plan, then you are planning to fail". After addressing any organizational concerns, I evaluate each student's personal learning basis...visual, kinetic, auditory, etc. I conduct each lesson in a compatible way with their personal learning style. The key to their success is usually a direct result of each student's ability to identify and understand how they "get it" and then to consistently pursue understanding in THAT/THOSE way(s).

Geometry

I have taught and tutored geometry throughout its junior high, high school and college phases. The surest way to understanding and a good grade is through building a foundation of the geometrical universe of mathematics identities and definitions. Lots of relevant examples and good foundations lead to building greater understanding.

Math

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

Discrete Math can be one of the most challenging of undergrad math courses. It is reminiscent of geometry, in that it has a main focus of "why", rather than the "what and where" of algebra and calculus. The symbolic language of Discrete Math is usually a bit challenging for most students. Upside down E's and A's can be confusing...Always....Sometimes... Getting to the details of each statement and it's composite statement of undeniable conclusion, can take more creativity than writing music or literature. Understanding in this course helps one define truth in other non-numerical topics as well.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

Finite Math is a summary course that covers the types of real world applications that most adults will need in this day and age. It is a course designed to challenge the student's translation abilities between the world we live in, and the mathematics we can use in it to make good decisions and choices in our lives. Most often, this type of student will need to engage the new ideas of ambiguity and possibility, where they had previously only needed calculations and absolutes. I work with my students in this class, by relying on the ultimate question of, "does it make sense?". In this way, we can understand the truth of the language of mathematics, instead of relying on memorized recipes to cook up some numbers.

Probability,

Probability

Probability and statistics can really throw a wrench into the understanding of mathematics for many students. Deriving four decimal places to come up with an answer that involves terms like,‘probably’, is usually the equivalent of false advertising for most students in math. All that work for a maybe?! Even still, it can be demystified with just a little bit of understanding and some help from a reliable and understandable tutor. That’s where I come in. I’ve been teaching and tutoring statistics for more than 10 years. My students usually find relevance and a personal connection with this topic. I can help you make sense out of your studies, or at the very least, a great grade in your course.

Great Finite Tutor!

Paige helped me prepare for my finite exam at Georgia Tech and was so helpful! She explained all the concepts so that they were easily understood and was very patient! Even though it was an online tutoring session, Paige would often look at my expressions and make sure I looked liked I was understanding things and if I looked confused would go over the problem again!

Great Tutor!

Paige has a great sense of humor, and great, detailed explanations. She always has good chemistry with both student and parents. Everybody feels saved with her tutoring.

Kate, 6 lessons with Paige

Very Knowledgeable and caring, I told her she is the Mary Poppins of Math, only with combat boots, Paige is a 'JOY'

Paige has slowed down my anxiety and nervousness, now I can focus on the learning and not the falling or failing part, I have a new outlook on math and I love Math, the beauty of the mathematical "world of numbers and stuff" (to quote Paige), all the best.

Jimi, 9 lessons with Paige

Patient and encouraging tutor.

Paige is working really well with our son. He reports that she is good at explaining the geometry concepts, helps him organize his study tools and also holds him accountable for his work between sessions. She is caring and enthusiastic about the subject and comes across as genuinely caring about my sons learning, not just about passing tests.

Catherine, 47 lessons with Paige

Very knowledgeable!

Paige was on time and ready to tutor me with math subjects. Paige helped me get a better understanding of Set Operations and Venn Diagrams. Paige took her time to carefully explain each step and she even created examples to help me get the material. I would recommend Paige and I plan on using her in the future!

Saved My Grade

Paige is an awesome tutor and she saved my grade in my intense summer statistics class. In the class I was completely confused about the material. I was very comfortable with Paige with all of our sessions. We had two lessons every week so I could keep up with the class and so understand the homework. She is very flexible with my ADHD and she explained the material I didn’t understand and throughly explained it to me in a way I could understand. Without her I would have not passed this class. Thanks Paige!!!

Great tutor

We are happy to have found Paige. She gives my son good tips to follow in order to score well. I like that she gives him milestones to achieve each lesson which makes it easily measurable.

Excellent Tutor!!!

We hired Paige to help my daughter (10th grade) with Pre-Calculus. What a great find!! She quickly established a nice rapport with my daughter. She enjoys her tutoring lessons and is learning more from Paige than her math teacher. She has progressed very well. Paige shows her different ways a problem can be solved and encourages my daughter to work on her own. Paige is extremely reliable, very patient, communicates promptly, and is on time for every session!! We would give her our highest recommendation for anyone looking for a great tutor!

Very Patient

Another great session with Paige. She takes the time to explain how things work. We will continue to call her to help our son with math concepts.
