About Theresa

Hi!

I'm Theresa and I am a certified high school math teacher. I have several years of private tutoring experience in multiple areas, including all levels of math, test preparation, chemistry, Spanish, and violin. I enjoy math and science as well as music and sports. During my student teaching, I prepared students to take the ACT and college math placement exam.

I also speak Spanish and Korean at an intermediate level. I have been playing the violin and singing for the last 15 years. I am a hard worker who always want the best for my students, and I am willing to go above and beyond to help you succeed. I'm more than happy to help you in any subject area, and I hope to hear from you soon!


Note: In order to cancel a session, a student is required to provide me with at least 5 hours notice. Otherwise, the student will be charged for the missed session.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have babysat children ranging from pre-k to 6th grade. During these times, I have taught them various activities and helped them with their homework. I have also been a camp counselor for children in kindergarten through 4th grade. As a teacher, I am familiar with multiple subject areas and am willing to tutor these subjects.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Study Skills

I have prior teaching and tutoring experience in helping students with study skills. With experience in honors and AP classes, I know multiple techniques and ways to help you memorize things. Personally, I have tried a lot of different ways to help me study, and I would like to help you do the same.

Violin

I have been playing violin for about 14 years and have also studied Suzuki. I have been in the district honors orchestra as well as the pit orchestra for the school musicals. I have played at weddings and various ceremonies. I have traveled to different schools and universities as well as countries like Germany, Austria, and Italy to perform. I am excited to teach those who share that joy of music. Please let me know how I can make violin fun and exciting for you!

Voice (Music)

I have been singing for the past 15 years. I have been a part of multiple choirs, in both church and school. I sang many types of music and in various languages as well. I have been in many concerts. Whether it's the Star Spangled Banner or any musical, I enjoy singing everyday.

Volleyball

I have played volleyball for 5 years and have played intramural volleyball in college. My position was a setter, and I have attended various camps learning my skill. I have also volunteered in teaching younger students. I enjoy the game! It’s fun, exciting, and competitive.
