Hi, my name is Candace!

In the last 5 years, I have tutored hundreds of students in subjects ranging from mathematics to writing. Although many came to me unsure of their ability to perform, most of my students leave feeling confident and knowledgeable by the end. You will too!

My style is personable and engaging. I believe learning should be fun, even when it is tough. That is why I focus on communication. By asking engaging questions, I can ensure that I understand exactly what my students need and that I meet those needs to the best of my ability. Moreover, I have a special knack for helping students connect concepts through analogy. For example, if your strength lies in writing, I can connect it to math. If your strength lies in math, I can connect it to music. There is always a way to foster a connection between familiar and unfamiliar ideas, and I find that to be the best way to learn.

Additionally, I think it is important to reward progress. Confidence plays a huge role in performance, and let's be honest: it is difficult to feel confident when we do not perform well. That is the reason I will be encouraging you all along the way. Naturally, I will push you to be great so that you can make the scores that you want. However, I will in equal measure remind you to step back and see how far you have come from the beginning. It is as important to celebrate the small wins as it is to celebrate the big ones, and we can do that together.

Hence, whether you are falling behind, or are simply looking for a refresher on an old subject, I am here to help! Feel free to message me for anything :)

--
As a final note, I feel it is only appropriate that I list a few credentials.

In addition to the subjects listed in my title, I have tutored calculus II, calculus III, linear algebra, and differential equations. For two years, I also worked as a student writing fellow, where I helped over 100 students develop collegiate-level writing skills. By the end of each semester, I helped raise most students' scores by a letter

Awesome Tutor!

Candace is doing a great job helping our daughter with Geometry ! We appreciate her dedication and patience. Our daughter's test scores have gone up and she is finally getting her homework done with the help of Candace. She is very flexible and accommodating to our daughters needs. We are very appreciative of all her help!

Amazing tutor

Candace is a great tutor. My daughter is now comfortable in Math. We are very Lucky having her as a tutor. I personaly recommended her to my friends, I hope she will have time for them.Thank you so much!

Mihret, 42 lessons with Candace

Knowledgeable tutor

Candace is very helpful. She took the time to understand where my daughter was struggling and explained things in a way she could understand. Candace is easy to schedule with and encouraging.

Kelly, 2 lessons with Candace

Very knowledgable tutor

Patient, without question knows her math, and teaching skills are evident. I would not hesitate to recommend her others. My one and only concern is without homework assignments, students arn't likel;y to excel. Moreover, it takes more than one lesson to comprehend difficult math problems and along with continuous lesson home work should be assigned and reviewed. In so doing each student is likely to excell to their great potential.

Shah, 1 lesson with Candace

Very Helpful and Insightful

Candace is a really great tutor. She actually made algebra interesting, which is a first for me. For my class, she reviewed factoring with me, using easy to understand explanations of the t-chart method. As a person who struggles with factoring and polynomial distribution, to the point where It took me a very long time to remember what it was, her explanations gave the problems clarity, and it was something I did not expect to grasp in just an hour. Although I may still struggle in that specific area, I can now say with confidence that I at least know what polynomials are. Thanks Candace, see you next week!

Kind and patient tutor.

Candace was a huge help in getting our daughter back on the path to confidence. She is flexible on pace and structure and adapts to the individual student's needs.

Erin, 1 lesson with Candace

Very patient and well knowledgeable

I learned the difference between a derivative and an integral today. I did not previously know the difference. She showed me many examples of integrals and what they looked like and we went over a few problem that she said were pretty simple to just grasp the idea of the difference between the two mathematical processes.
