About Stephanie

Hello!

Thank you for considering me to assist you with your math needs. My most effective tool in helping you address your challenges is patience! I know you are smart enough to get it, I just need to help you realize that too.

I am currently an adjunct instructor at Wilmington University teaching college algebra and statistics. I appreciate their student-centered approach to learning and have incorporated this philosophy into my practice. My patience and passion for math have been developed from my early studies in Engineering and my applications of statistics as a Business Analyst.

Whether you need to pass a class you are failing, improve your skills for work or increase your score on the math portion of that standardized test, a patient and effective tutor will get you results! I am different from other tutors because I use a relational approach to fill any knowledge and skills gaps. When working with me, you should feel more comfortable in understanding and applying basic concepts to multiple situations and circumstances. You can achieve not only higher test scores (including standardized tests such as the GED, PRAXIS, and SAT) but a better understanding of the learning objectives and higher levels of proficiency in your studies.

I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

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

Algebra 1 is fundamental to the understanding of higher math. My patient and effective style is particularly useful when coaching students in Algebra. My method for supporting the concepts of variables, equations/inequalities and functions sets my students up for future success!

Algebra 2

My patient and effective style is particularly useful when coaching students in Algebra 2. My method for supporting the concepts of variables, equations/inequalities and functions sets my students up for future success!

Business

I have an MBA from a regionally ranked school where I graduated with a 3.4 GPA. I also have experience as a business advisor, business consultant and small business owner.

GED

I utilize standard test prep books to drill down and uncover the knowledge or skill gaps that need to be closed as well as work to hone test-taking skills for my students, including for the GED.

Geometry

Geometry is fundamental to the understanding of higher math. My patient and effective style is particularly useful when coaching students in Geometry.

Microsoft Access

I have been working with Microsoft Access for several years. I developed my first database in 1998 to track training and systems access for call center associates. I am familiar with 2007 and 2010 versions performing operations such as importing and exporting to and from Excel, building simple, append and make table queries, recording macros and creating forms and reports.

Microsoft Excel

Over the course of my career as a business analyst, I have used intermediate and advanced features of Microsoft Excel such as pivot tables, conditional formatting, statistical plug-ins and conditional analysis.

Microsoft PowerPoint

In my executive support roles, I have created and maintained professional slide decks for high-level Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. In other presentation uses, I have utilized features such as animation, smart art and audio tracks.

Microsoft Word

My experience with creating and editing several types of documents in Word including research papers, advertising literature, reports and procedures means that I can assist you with just about any type of document creation you would need.

Praxis

The PRAXIS math exam includes much of the material that I have successfully tutored on the SAT, GMAT and other standardized tests. Content areas such as algebra, geometry and statistics are heavily featured in this exam. While it has some differences with other standardized tests, I have been successful in helping students gain the required points to meet or exceed the minimum required scores for the state of Delaware.

Precalculus

Precalculus encompases all of the content areas foundational to success in Calculus, including functions, graphing and geometry. During my undergraduate work, I completed four (4) levels of Calculus. Since then, I have successfully worked with dozens of students in high school and college to effectively understand precalculus.

SAT Math

I have worked with students whose SAT math scores improved 100-200 points after receiving my services. I utilize standard test prep books to drill down and uncover the knowledge or skill gaps that need to be closed as well as work to hone test-taking skills for my students.

Statistics

I have taken graduate-level statistics three times (in different programs) where I earned no less than an A-. I successfully tutor both undergraduate and graduate students in all levels of math including statistics.
