My teaching experience consists of six years of teaching in both private and public schools. Currently, I am a retired certified math teacher, state of Florida, for grades 7-12. Tutoring over 900 hours on Wyzant's platform and working with my own children adds to my versatile experience. Last teaching position I held was teaching Algebra 2 in Brevard County, Florida. Tutoring students who scored a 5 on the Algebra I EOC exam provides an expertise in this area. Online coursework experience with students enrolled in Florida Virtual School courses provides a foundation for working with common core ,modeling mathematics, and online coursework. Proficiency includes working with the University of Florida's Algebra Nation Workbook and the Math Nation Geometry Course Workbook for those who need guidance completing these challenging workbooks

The past two years, I have done extensive work on ACT preparation. Mathematics can be a challenging topic and I feel that I can explain many complicated ideas in a simple way.

My daughter is attending USF. She still comes home on the weekends to receive help in her math courses. It is such a pleasure to be able to help others and I look as teaching as a gift. I was a teacher long before I became a mother, but being a mother has made me a better teacher.

Knowledgeable tutor and has been very patient with me

I look forward each week meeting with her as she teaches in a way I’m able to understand. I like how I can ask a question and not be judged even if it’s a simple question. She really is a good tutor and adapts to how you learn and is a great tutor!

Great tutor

My daughter has been struggling with Algebra all year. She was able to identify the specific reason in about 15 minutes. We are going to be going a couple of more sessions. Would highly recommend her.
