## Awesome tutor

Anita, 3 lessons with SylviaSylvia has been great with Deborah. The sessions help clarify questions and build her confidence. She recently took her 9 weeks exam and her grade improved greatly. Thanks for your patience and thoroughly explained lessons.

Having a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, I am knowledgeable in the sciences, but I specialize in Mathematics: Elementary and Middle school Math, High School Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry and Math for College Readiness, as well as College Level Math prerequisites, Algebra I and Algebra II.

My favorite subject has always been Mathematics, so I've made myself available over the years to help those who struggle in this area, often turning their dislike...

I taught Kindergarten for two years in a small Christian School using Abeka curriculum, as well as having home-schooled my own daughter in the 4th, 6th and 8th grades. In 4th grade we also used the Abeka curriculum, and recently a home-school student I tutored used Paces as his curriculum. While teaching at the small private school, after school I also tutored students of all ages through high school who were struggling with math subjects.

As an overall general perfectionist, especially academically, it aggravates me when I find misspelled words... especially on business/professional documents! There is nothing more unprofessional. Your spelling is an indicator of your proficiency. I'm a firm believer that if you're going to do something, you should do it right. With my help, weak spellers can conquer this weakness.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Algebra I is a transitional math subject, whereby the mind must be able to retrain it's thinking to include mathematical concepts so unlike the norm... abstract concepts and ways of thinking "out of the box." Often this is incomprehensible to many students (even adults) and becomes overwhelmingly frustrating to the point that the student gives up or simply fails the course. This is where I shine! For me, there is nothing more rewarding than to witness a student's journey from Algebra I extreme frustration and failure to that of clarified understanding, achievement and undeniable success in the subject! It's especially rewarding being tagged in my adult students' Facebook posts whereby they're bragging of their unbelievable success in Algebra!

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I tend to like the abstract... abstract art, abstract minds, abstract topics, etc. Perhaps abstract can be considered as "thinking out of the box." Algebra II is very much like that. It expounds upon the introduction of the abstract as presented in Algebra I; yet, in part II the mind must be able to retrain it's thinking to include what is extremely not normal... what is abstract! This is where I shine!

## Super patient!!!

Sylvia is great!! I am so relieved to have her help. I need serious help with college algebra and she is perfect! I plan to work with her for the entire semester so I don’t get behind.

Erin, 13 lessons with Sylvia

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sylvia is not only working with our son on his algebra but also on his organizational skills in school. We have already seen a huge difference in both his organization and his attitude towards school since working with her. His motivation level around school has gone up after just two sessions and he is excited to get organized in all of his classes, which will help him to stop missing assignments.

Kari, 10 lessons with Sylvia

## Great tutor

My daughter is very happy with the way Sylvia is helping her with Algebra 2. She teaches on the same level that a classroom teacher would,but it's so much better since it's a one -on-one experience.

Francina, 6 lessons with Sylvia

## Knowledgeable Math Tutor

I connected with Sylvia from day one, with this being our third session. She is very knowledgeable of the subject, Algebra 1, and explains each step, giving simple and efficient ways to apply the rules to each type of Algebraic problem. I highly recommend Sylvia for anyone needing Math help.

Suzanne, 3 lessons with Sylvia

## Great feedback after lesson!

Great feedback provided after the last 2 sessions. It really helps me see what exactly they worked on and what we can work on in btwn. Already shes gaining confidence & has more clarity abt whats being covered in class!
