About Virginia

I am a retired CSUB Mathematics Instructor with many years of experience both teaching and tutoring mathematics. I have taught everything from Pre-Algebra to Calculus, Teacher Education and Business Math. I know how to present topics using a range of different approaches, depending on the student, and how to break topics down to make them understandable. I emphasize conceptual understanding rather than rote memorization of techniques, because when a student understands "Why?", remembering "How"? becomes much easier. I genuinely love teaching math, both to gifted students and those struggling to succeed, or with learning disabilities. I am MAC/PC computer proficient, experienced in public speaking, proofreading, editing, writing, small business accounting and Quickbooks.
