I am an educator and engineer who enjoys teaching people how to do and use mathematics to achieve personal goals in their academic or personal life. My interest in mathematics steered me towards the engineering field so that I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Art degree in Mathematics (both from Florida Atlantic University). I have years of industry experience in the software engineering field and also years of classroom teaching experience in the U.S. public school system, which has provided me the opportunity to teach well over 1,000 students. I consistently get a variety of learners, from those struggling with the material to those who are talented in the subject, to achieve higher grades, pass tests, prevent failure of a course, improve their study skills, strengthen their work ethic, and subsequently increase their self-confidence.
By continuing to teach as a high school mathematics teacher, I have extensive training in the best effective teaching practices. I have developed a track record of high percentages of student performance in meeting or exceeding the proficiency level in state standardized tests (end-of-course exams). Through my software engineering experience, I have deeply appreciated how the mathematics taught in school is used to create the products people use in our society. Currently I focus on researching and applying math to software for interactive media (such as computer graphics and puzzle games).
Therefore, I can help by providing instruction that clarifies math concepts while coaching through critical thinking to solve problems and enhancing the instruction through integrating technology (i.e. iPad apps such as the Wolfram Alpha computational software engine or dynamic geometry software). This is in addition to providing the usual support with review of class material, and reading comprehension and discussion of text, worksheet, or project assignments. I customize the sessions to meet the student objectives, which can range from targeted assistance in preparation for exams to lesson-by-lesson coverage of an entire course.
So regardless of whether you are a student (or parent of a student) in middle school, high school, college, or university seeking support with advanced math (algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, or higher), test prep (SAT/ACT and others), or engineering (physics, programming, electrical) subjects, you have encountered the right tutor.
I provide online tutoring or in person tutoring at local libraries and public places.
Patient and Well Organized
We went over material for my final exam in IB Math and ACT math for my upcoming test. She explains everything in a way I can actually understand before I even have to ask her why she did something to solve the problem. For ACT math prep she has amazing resources like practice tests, review sets, and formula sheets that are such a great help! I have already gone up a few points on the math section using the tricks and multiple ways of solving problems that she showed me.Kayla, 37 lessons with Vanessa
My daughter is having great success with her grades due to Vanessa's help. She looks forward to the lessons which we book around her already busy sports and art scheduleMatt , 11 lessons with Vanessa
10/10 FOR SURE!!!!
Vanessa teaches my daughter algebra 2. My daughter absolutely loves Vanessa's tutoring lessons because she explains the material really well and makes it easy to understand! Vanessa is patient, kind, and a GREAT tutor.Ana, 8 lessons with Vanessa
Vanessa taught my daughter a Geometry lesson that she was struggling with. She was patient and thorough. It was a wonderful tutor session. I highly recommend Vanessa!Megan, 4 lessons with Vanessa
Knowledgeable and flexible
Vanessa has been very helpful translating AP Calculus for my daughter. She has also been able to accommodate my daughter's very busy schedule. I would recommend her highly!Jennifer, 4 lessons with Vanessa
Assisted with test prep AP Calculus
My HS son needed help with Integration and optimization. She was patient and thorough. She is very knowledgeable, and knows how to teach which is sometimes the biggest flaw with tutors, not able to communicate properly. I highly recommend her and will be using her again. She was able to accommodate our last minute request.Ody, 4 lessons with Vanessa
Fantastic tutor who helped me understand material for my Calculus 3 final exam. On time and helped me multiple times in one week.Reese, 3 lessons with Vanessa
Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor
Vanessa is a fantastic tutor. She was very flexible and dedicated to helping my son succeed in Algebra 2. My son's grade increased two letter grades. Will definitely use her in the future if needed.Gail, 34 lessons with Vanessa
Great tutor and very nice person. Highly recommend!
She teaches new material, reduces confusion on older material, and gives you confidence that you really know what you are doing. Plan to book 2 two-hour sessions every week for the rest of the semester.Susan, 110 lessons with Vanessa
Very Detailed, Son's Teacher Impressed!
Vanessa is professional, talented, well-educated, and an excellent teacher. She connects well with my kids and the results show in their tests scores in their classes.Debbie, 127 lessons with Vanessa
