I have over 14 years of experience tutoring middle school and high school mathematics, as well as SAT, PSAT and ACT math prep!
**LOCATED IN THE DOVER/MAGNOLIA, DE AREA**
From 2006-2011, I owned a test prep and math tutoring company in my hometown of Tampa, Florida. There I worked with over 300 students and had amazing success helping my students improve their math grades and test scores. Since 2011, we have moved around quite a bit as a military family - California, Oklahoma, and now Magnolia, Delaware. With each new location, I love to expand my ability to reach students in college and high school math courses, and to help with their test preparation for the PSAT, SAT, ACT. I also have some experience tutoring for the AFOQT (math portion of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test).
I know how to explain mathematics to my students in a very clear way that is easy to understand. I always help my students make study guides or concept flash cards for their tests to help them memorize formulas and concepts better. I am an expert tutor in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry and Trigonometry. As well, I have over 14 years experience teaching the math portions of the ACT and SAT. My students often see their scores increase dramatically on their college entrance exams. My students tell me that their confidence and general attitude about math improves after working with me. I absolutely love what I do and would love to work with you or your child.
I look forward to hearing from you! I have over 14 years of experience tutoring middle school and high school mathematics, as well as SAT, PSAT and ACT math prep!

I really struggle with math. My first meeting with you left me feeling very confident. You have this amazing ability to break each problem down so that it makes perfect sense. You are also extremely patient and never made me feel "bad" for not knowing the answer. I have no idea how I survived any other math class without you. I would recommend you to everyone!
We highly recommend Sandra. Our daughter needed some last minute math help before the ACT and Sandra was able to help out with short notice. We are so pleased that we will be scheduling more sessions with her for our middle school child to get her ready for the SAT/ACT.
Thank you Sandra!! When my daughter first came to you, she was very concerned about taking the math portion of the SAT. You have worked hard at preparing Jessica for what she was weak at. It was not a "cookie cutter" preparation. You made the program specific to what she needed. She feels good about taking the exam. Thank you so much!!
Sandra always helps me get a better understanding of my math work and teaches me tricks to help myself when I am in class! I highly recommend her!
Sandra is a great tutor. She helped me pass the math section of praxis 1. Before coming to her my score was 144 and I needed 150 to pass. After her help I passed with a 168. Sandra is very patient and willing to work with your availability. I would definitely send anyone who needs help with math to her.
Sandra is a very talented tutor.
Our daughter was struggling big time and after just a few sessions with Sandra her grade in the class improved dramatically. She is patient and thorough.
We cannot recommend her highly enough!
Sandra is very flexible with my schedule and is a great tutor! She makes sure I understand the material.
Sandra is an excellent tutor! Both patient and extremely and a great expert on math! She was able to help me pass a very hard college math! I could not have done it without her! I ended up with a B in the course. Highly recommend Sandra!
Sandra has changed my daughter's attitude towards Math. I know she has made an impact on her perception of Math also. The overwhelming proof is her sudden improvement in her grades. Also my daughter looks forward to Sandra coming by and tutoring her. Her experience really shines through!!
The difference that's Sandra's made is appreciable- both in my daughter's attitude towards math and in her grades! And Sandra always lets me know what they're working on, how the lessons went, and what my daughter needs to work on. I couldn't ask for more.
Sandra has been working with my daughter on math and study skills required to pass the Math Praxis to enable her to teach. The individualized structured and organized approach Sandra utilizes has helped Casey develop her confidence and skill acquisition. Additionally, she has been able to identify areas of weakness and focus on building up those areas through focused intervention in specific areas as well as developing homework assignments which aide in concept carry-over. Casey enjoys her tutoring sessions and the patience and sincerity Sandra displays during the lessons.
Sandra is a great tutor to work with! She is patient and professional and very flexible with her schedule. My granddaughter was happy working with her, and we would definitely ask for her help again! I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking for an excellent math tutor for their child!
My daughter had an F in algebra and needed to pass the retest. Her original grade was an F, and after just one hour with Sandra reviewing the questions, my daughter passed the next day with an A. I am amazed at how well she explained the material and how easy she makes it for my daughter to understand.
Sandy did a fantastic job working with my schedule and getting me prepared in a very short amount of time. She prepped me for the math portions of the AFOQT, Air Force Office Qualifying Test, and her instruction was phenomenal!
We signed up with Sandra a couple of weeks ago after reading great reviews about her on WyzAnt. Our son, who is a Junior this year 2013-14 school year, needs help to improve his upcoming PSAT and SAT exams. Based on the last 3 lessons our son has attended to date, things are looking great! Sandra started by providing a diagnosis of our son's prior PSAT and SAT attempts and mapped out a strategy to increase his scores. Analyzing prior test results is a skill and method that only great tutors embark on. Most tutors generally start by giving a diagnostic test to determine where a student stands. Sandra uses prior results to benchmark where her student is, which is a great methodology to get a student on the right path quickly. Sandra also recommended that we buy the CollegeBoard SAT book as the questions closely match what actually comes on the real SAT tests. I thought this is a good recommendation as I later found out from most online reviews that the SAT Collegeboard exam prep book Sandra recommended, was in fact the best prep book on the market. It comes with 10 Practice tests. Our son took the first Math portion of the SAT and scored well enough to give Sandra 'leads' into Algebra II areas he needs help on! Sandra gave our son methodologies for attacking medium to difficult questions on the SAT, particularly ALG II concepts he may have missed or never attempted in school. We still have a number of lessons left till the PSAT and SAT exams. Our son looks forward to the next couple of tutoring sessions to keep increasing his chances of improving his PSAT and SAT scores. So far so great! I would highly recommend Sandra to any High Schooler who needs this kind of help, particularly SAT/PSAT exam prep.
Sandra is a great tutor. My daughter has had a couple lessons with Sandra. She said Sandra explained the problems very clearly and easy to understand. And her SAT math score is getting higher. Thank you, Sandra!
Sandra is a great tutor for my daughter. She is patient and thorough. If she doesn't understand a concept, Sandra will try a variety of methods to help her. Sandra is also very accommodating. I would definitely recommend her.
Sandra is an excellent tutor. She gets right to the problems he's having in pre-algebra and helping him to practice and correct these problems. I'm confident that her help will get him "up to speed" for the coming year's class.
Sandra is wonderful at explaining math concepts in a way my daughter can understand. My teenager likes her very much and feels very comfortable working with her. Thank you Sandra.
My daughter was getting ready to take her S.A.T. and Sandra helped her get ready for the math portion of the test. She was very helpful to my daughter with understanding Math and tested her to get her feeling good about taking such an important test! My daughter only had 1 month to work with Sandra and she fit my daughter into her schedule well. My daughter was very happy working with Sandra. She has also continued to work with her for regular math class work that she was struggling with. She is now understanding it all much better! Great Tutor!! So glad we found her.
Sandra has proven to be an effective tutor. She has tutored my nephew in Geometry. He was barely passing this class, but in the end he received an A. Sandra has been very patient, encouraging and enthusiastic which has helped motivate him to work harder and to have confidence in himself. Sandra presented material in a way that was much easier for him to understand. He learned quickly through Sandra's teaching methods. She has been committed to improving his understanding of difficult math concepts and we continue to work with her towards his success in math courses and on the SAT.
My daughter was struggling with Geometry and was ready to give up and move to a lower math class. Sandra has taken time to teach in a way that has helped my daughter so much. We have already experienced higher tests scores in the first week! Sandra is very professional. So grateful we found her.
I decided to get a tutor after seeing the problems that my son was having in Geometry.
Chapter #1 - 45.46%, Chapter #2 - 70.27%, and
Chapter# 3 - 68%.
After two sessions with Sandra my son took the benchmark test for Chapters 1-3 and received an 86.67%. His is very excited about his progress and can't wait for his next tutoring session.
Sandra is a great tutor. She works very well with my 14 year old son. I am starting to see his grade increase.
I contacted Sandra via email and she responded the same day literally within hours. She indicated that she was willing to accommodate her schedule to meet our student's needs. Our son meets with Sandra in the Public Library which is across the street from his high school to get private tutoring for his pre-calculus class. His personal feedback includes phrases like "she's a great teacher".
Sandy e-mailed me within 20 minutes of me sending my interest and was ready for me to schedule the session. She worked with both of my sons, ages 12 and 14, both in algebra and different levels. She was kind, positive, intelligent, and very professional in addition to really knowing her stuff and all three of us really liked her!
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.
I have over 14 years experience tutoring ACT math. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your ACT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students come to me with a specific ACT score in mind (for a college application) and I am able to help them achieve this goal!
I absolutely love teaching Algebra I and Algebra II! These are my favorite two courses to teach and I have worked with over 300 students in FL, CA, and DE in these courses and have over 14 years of experience teaching these two subjects! I can making learning Algebra fun and my students have told me I am excellent at explaining ways to memorize formulas and definitions necessary for these courses.
I love working with younger children and inspiring them to enjoy mathematics! I am a warm and friendly person, and children are comfortable working with me. I can explain things to them in a clear way and can teach to a wide range of learning abilities. If your child is in 1st through 6th grade needing help, please contact me!
Geometry can be a tricky class for many people because of all of the formulas, definitions, rules and postulates that must be learned. In this class, I help my students keep all of these rules straight by making flash cards and building a study guide out of the definitions as we move through the class. I also focus on the Geometry concepts that are often on the SAT or ACT so that my students can strongly understand the concepts that they will see again on those tests. I am excellent at explaining graphing and constructions! I have been tutoring Geometry for over 14 years.
I have worked with many pre-algebra students and my students always tell me that they enjoy working with me because I make the learning fun and I explain things in a way that is easy to understand. I believe that having a strong background in pre-algebra makes a student struggle much less with Algebra I and Algebra II, so I really enjoy teaching this course and helping students increase their confidence in math!
I have over 14 years experience tutoring PSAT MATH. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your PSAT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students have improved their PSAT (math scores) significantly!! This test is also a great way to prepare yourself for the SAT, and is usually taken during your sophomore or junior year of high school. This test is the National Merit Scholar qualifying test that juniors will take in October each year.
I have been professionally trained on SAT prep (worked for Advantage Testing, Houston) and I have over 14 years experience teaching the math concepts on this test. The SAT is changing A LOT in 2016... I want to help my students be ready for these changes and understand the "new" format of the test. I am very knowledgeable regarding the math content on this test, as well as strategies on how to best improve your SAT score. I can explain the test rules and grading procedures. Many of my students have improved their SAT (math scores) over 100 points!
