About Darlene

Hi! My name is Darlene, and I have been tutoring students for ten years. I am currently math teacher for the state of Connecticut. Previously I was a tutor by profession at Naugatuck Valley Community College. I am a certified master tutor through the National Tutoring Association. I have tutored students from various local schools, including Woodland, Holy Cross, Sacred Heart, Kennedy and Watertown high schools.

My experience at NVCC includes tutoring all levels of math from pre-algebra through differential equations. I am also comfortable with business math and linear algebra, having received grades of 4.0 in almost all my math courses including these two. I have also earned my M Ed at UCONN. My philosophy in tutoring is to encourage students to understand concepts by explaining math in plain English. I like to demonstrate how to solve a problem, and then have the students explain it back to me by trying another similar problem. I am also capable of tutoring literature and writing, as I have taken many literature courses at UCONN as well, also with grades of 4.0. I can also tutor psychology courses as that was my minor, haven taken eight psychology courses, all also with grades of 4.0. I currently teach Algebra 2, Geometry, Statistics, and Business Math.

I am also capable of tutoring test prep. I have passed WyzAnt's proficiency exams for SAT, GRE, GMAT and ASVAB and Praxis testing, with flying colors! I have also scored in the top 75th percentile on the Praxis II for Mathematical Content Knowledge. I understand that students sometimes need to work on test taking strategies as well as content knowledge in order to succeed and overcome some of the anxiety that often accompanies exam time. I am here to help build that skill set and increase student confidence for exams!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for many years. My students have consistently scored high on statewide assessments in Algebra 1.

Geometry

I have taught Geometry for several years. My experience includes teaching proofs, hands on learning through manipulatives, and using computer programs to convey knowledge.

Linear Algebra

I took a course on Linear Algebra which I passed with a 4.0. I know about matrices, eigen values, and how to solve vectors. I also know the many rules and theorems for identity matrices.

Praxis

I have the ability to tutor Praxis ii Math, as I have passed the exam with a score significantly higher than the required. I have taken math courses up to differential equations and non-Euclidean geometry, enabling me to have a better understanding on the basic courses Praxis tests on, being calculus one and standard geometry, as well as statistics and basic algebra. There are also questions on matrix algebra, on which I took an entire course and passed with a 4.0.

Great tutor! — Darlene is a great tutor. Very easy to understand. Translates "statistics" into the English language for the average student to understand. After the first session, I received a 92 on my very next test. After the last session, I got an 82 on my next test. My average has increased tremendously. Very happy with the results so far. Will continue to rely on her through the final exam. ...
