About Sandra

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!

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.

ACT Math

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!

Algebra 1

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.

Elementary Math

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

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.

Prealgebra

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!

PSAT

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.

SAT Math

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!

You are AMAZING!

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!
