About Whitney


Bio

My name is Whitney and I have been a middle school math teacher for 10 years. My parents were also educators, so it really runs in my blood. I have helped students, older and younger, with many other subjects along with math. I have always loved working with kids and have been told that I make learning fun. I'm not a serious person, but I understand the seriousness of success in school, especially feeling confident in what you do.

My goals for each tutoring session is to keep students...

My name is Whitney and I have been a middle school math teacher for 10 years. My parents were also educators, so it really runs in my blood. I have helped students, older and younger, with many other subjects along with math. I have always loved working with kids and have been told that I make learning fun. I'm not a serious person, but I understand the seriousness of success in school, especially feeling confident in what you do.

My goals for each tutoring session is to keep students engaged and hopefully excited and not overwhelmed. I understand that learning with a tutor is very helpful and I also understand that follow through (independently) is necessary. Therefore, a small amount of homework will be assigned after each session. Assessments and progress reports will be provided every so often as needed. My availability is flexible.

I was a 7th grade math teacher for 10 years. When I was learning math, I had to practice a lot. I understand that certain concepts do not sink in right away. Practicing with a tutor or teacher is helpful, but also practicing alone is what will help a concept stick. My approach is to make learning fun and easy to understand.

I have an Bachelor's degree in Biology. I've loved anything science since I was little. I've taken over 50 hours of science classes in college and have a way of teaching that is playful and fun.
