Hello, my name is Kasie. I am 32 years old. My passion for helping students learn began in high school when I first started volunteering as a math tutor for underclassmen. I developed my tutoring style over the course of the last ten years. I have worked with middle school, high school and college students ranging in math subjects from pre-algebra to advanced calculus. I spent my previous two and a half years as an Assistant Learning Specialist and Math Specialist for the Sports Department at The University of Arizona. While I was there I developed a math prep program for college placement exams. I also worked with students on overall education skills, not just math. I am able to help with organization, study skills, brainstorming strategies and analysis of assigned reading materials for English assignments.

Not all students learn the same way and my willingness to adapt strategies to the way a student thinks has helped my students become more successful. I believe that fundamentals, especially math fundamentals are always the key to success. By getting a student to feel more confident with their basic skills, my goal is to at least get a student not to hate their math homework.
Next to realizing that all students learn differently, the most important quality of a tutor is patience and understanding. Having been a student who struggled with math in the classroom until high school, I understand what it is like to be frustrated with how teachers present a concept. I spent years, even in college, learning how to approach problems from multiple angles to make sure that when a student asked me for help I knew how it worked, why it worked a
