About Alka


Bio

I have been tutoring for almost 15 years now – all levels of math, ACT, SAT test prep, college essay editing, and K-8 English. I evaluate each student’s level of proficiency and organization, using this information and his/her desired goals to devise lessons. This, combined with a student’s effort helps me deliver quality, results, and value.

I have been tutoring for almost 15 years now – all levels of math, ACT, SAT test prep, college essay editing, and K-8 English. I evaluate each student’s level of proficiency and organization, using this information and his/her desired goals to devise lessons. This, combined with a student’s effort helps me deliver quality, results, and value.

My background includes an MS Computer Science, industry work experience, living and working on three continents, school board and education foundation service, long-term math subs, and personal experience with education and college applications through my children.

I understand students well, and have yet to meet a student I couldn’t quickly build a rapport with, or that I couldn’t help become more confident or more successful. Students appreciate my non-judgmental approach, and I seek their input to adjust the pace of our work. I generally first review or teach a topic, followed by guided practice, and finally, individual practice. Sometimes, we review for a specific quiz or test, and other times we might take a detour to a past topic if we find holes that need to be filled, or look ahead to the next topic if there’s time left. I look for students to demonstrate their learning to me by quizzing them before moving on to the next topic. Encouraging girls and underrepresented minorities to improve math achievement has been a special interest of mine for over a decade. Working with students keeps me active and young; I love tutoring students!

I am easy to get a hold of. Please message me with questions or to schedule a complimentary trial session. You won't be disappointed. It's never too late; better grades and improved learning is the best investment of all for a happier and more successful life in the future. Call or email today!

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am a subject expert in Algebra 1 with excellent and comprehensive materials and resources. I have tutored numerous Algebra 1 students at all levels - regular, struggling with or without special needs, and advanced - and continue to do so. I have also tutored Algebra 1 to students doing both Algebra 1 and Geometry at the same time.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have expert subject knowledge of Algebra 2, a crucial subject for high school success. I have been using comprehensive materials to tutor Algebra 2 Block, Algebra 2, and Honors Algebra 2 students during the school year and over the summer. All students have grown in confidence and have been successful.
Geometry,

Geometry

I am a subject expert in both Honors Geometry and Geometry. I have tutored many Geometry students to date, including some who did Algebra 1 at the same time. I have also done a long-term sub for Geometry and Honors Geometry. Seeing students realize that proofs are nothing to be afraid of is a big step for them, and convinces them that regular practice and writing steps in order really does produce results.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I've tutored Pre-algebra for many years to students of all ability levels during the school year and during the accelerated district program over the summer. I use extensive practice materials for numbers, functions, geometry, and other topics to help build a solid base of concepts. I also tutor Calculus, and I understand how important earlier concepts are to success later on, so I make sure students demonstrate their understanding of a topic before moving on to the next one.
Precalculus

Precalculus

The many application problems in Pre-calculus and Honors Pre-calculus make these very interesting courses for me. I like to help students understand and appreciate the many phenomena around us that can be modeled using math in these courses. I appreciate the seriousness of these students compared to some other courses. Each Pre-calculus student I’ve had has done well and most have gone on to study Calculus. I have many excellent materials for additional practice which helps to do well in these courses.

I have been using my expert ACT Math knowledge, resources, and prep materials to help students achieve their target ACT math score, including a perfect score. I use diagnostics to identify specific areas of improvement, and tailor practice towards it. References are available upon request.
