“**Holly is an excellent teacher**”

Hello! My name is Holly. :D

I am an undergraduate studying nuclear, plasma, radiological engineering with a concentration in power, safety, and the environment.

Through the American Nuclear Society, I have gained experience teaching by volunteering several times every semesters for the Boy Scouts of America. I have assisted

Holly is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

Geometry - pythagoras theorem. Excellent job and explaining every step and finding out where the student is at in terms of existing knowledge, and building on that.

Holly taught me about newton' law and how to solve f=ma problems. She is guides me thru and helps me understand them.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

My ACT Scores was 33 in Math.

I've volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America to teach merit badges about nuclear science and energy systems, so I'm comfortable in teaching STEM at a middle school/early high school level.

Algebra 2 is the backbone for a lot of upper-level math, so I find myself using it in a lot of high-level math, physics and engineering courses. I also use a lot of resources (MatLab, Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha, Texas Instruments) to learn new techniques and check my (and my students) work.

I work a lot with kids. This summer I worked at a day camp and taught math (as well as swimming) at the preK - 3rd grade level. I understand that it's important to have a solid foundation and make it interactive; math isn't inherently fun and I try really hard to engage the kids. I volunteered with several semesters teaching the Boy Scouts (late elementary - middle school). I taught them about Energy Systems and Nuclear Science so I'm familiar with teaching STEM at that age level. I think for kids that age it's important to really be engaged in the math and understand the practical application; I use a lot of pictures and hands-on examples.

I've volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America to teach merit badges about nuclear science and energy systems, so I'm comfortable in teaching STEM at an early high school level. I also try to teach the important concepts for studying and test-taking, which I feel are necessary to success in high school math classes. Additionally, geometry is the building blocks for algebra and trigonometry, so I try to help tying in a student's current coursework into other classes they may take in the future.

I have taken (and received As in) the entire college calculus sequence, so I have a thorough understanding of precalculus and its applications to calculus and higher-level math. I also tutor in geometry, trig, and algebra; often I find that if a student does not have a strong foundation in these, it can be difficult to do precalc. I'm able to help them refresh their knowledge to really be able to use what they have already learned in precalc. I also tutor in ACT/SAT, so I'm able to help the student work on test-taking skills if that is something they struggle with. Given my private tutoring experience, I also have supplemental material of my own to help illustrate certain concepts if a student is not understanding it through their textbook, coursework, and tutoring. If there is a topic I don't have material for, I'm more than happy to create something to help the student understand.

I'm currently tutoring multiple high school students for SAT Math, so I have experience with helping students prepare for the standardized exams in regards to both test taking approaches as well as the content itself.
