About Darby

My name is Darby, and I am a student enrolled at VVC. I am currently working on getting my degree in Mechanical Engineering. My mathematical knowledge includes all math from arithmetic, to calculus, excluding statistics (no one likes statistics). I have tutored mathematics since I was a freshman in high school, and have enjoyed doing so ever since. I also have a decent background in English as well as music. I enjoy writing papers, and helping others work on improving their English skills as well. I am a large fan of music, and have taken several music classes. I have completed Music Appreciation and Music Fundamentals, and have played guitar for several years. Classical and Jazz are my favorite types of music to play on the guitar. I have played in the VVC Guitar Ensemble for several semesters where the focus was on classical and jazz styles. There is no such thing as a dumb question, so if you are in need of some kind of educational help, I am the one to ask. If I can't teach something you need to know, I may be able to help you find someone who can. My name is Darby, and I am a student enrolled at VVC.

Approved subjects

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.


The CBEST is a test designed to test one's skills in reading, writing and mathematics. I excel at these three subjects and have helped several people through their hardships with the subjects that pertain to this test. Mathematics plays right into my major, and I have completed many classes up to and including calculus (the mathematics subjects on the test only get as difficult as geometry). Reading and writing are two other skills I excel at. I am confident with my abilities to tutor this subject, since English 101, the latest English class I have completed, happens to focus primarily on reading and writing skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

K-6 learning involves a typical two-step learning process. From K-2 (sometimes 3) the student begins with the learning to read approach, and from 3-6 the student is now reading to learn. I feel I am qualified to instruct children in this stage due to 3 things: my knowledge and mastery of the subjects they will be learning day to day, my background in psychology to assist with a child's thought process, and my knowledge of child development to further assist with relating the material to the child's age group.


The TEAS test (Test of Essential Academic Skills) is a test typically taken by those entering the field of nursing. The test focuses on four fields. they are Math, Science, Language and English. The math portion is comprised of arithmetic up through advanced algebra and geometry, which I am qualified to teach with my background in math including all fields up to and including calculus. The Science on the test is comprised of basic biology, chemistry and very basic physics skills, such as: simple chromosomal questions, questions on Boyle's law, acids, Archimedes' principle, and other common science skills. All of which I have covered in college and high school in several different classes, making me an effective tutor in those areas. The final two areas are English and Language usage. The areas cover reading comprehension, vocabulary, and sentence structure. English language skills just so happened to be my minor in college, and I have completed several classes on the subject, making me more than capable of teaching writing strategies, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and sentence structure.
