About Hollin

I am an honors graduate of the Louisiana Tech B.Sc. mathematics program.

I have experience in tutoring college students in mathematics for Louisiana Tech University. I have tutored in maths ranging from algebra to trigonometry, calculus, and differential equations. I also have experience working for Learning Tech Quest School, a school which focuses on teaching and supporting elementary to middle school kids with learning disabilities. In addition, spent two years working as an online algebra I and II tutor.

At first I was only tutoring on the side, but I have enjoyed it so much I have made it my profession, and I am dedicated to helping my students learn.

I have a holistic approach to tutoring. That means I don't only go over the material, I work with you to discover strengths and address weaknesses in your approach to learning and doing math. This includes working through math or test anxiety, developing problem solving strategies and techniques, and improving study habits and skills. I will help you learn how to learn.

Please note that I cannot call you until you provide WyzAnt with billing information.

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.

Praxis

I took the Praxis 0061 test (high school math content exam) in June of 2011. I scored a 173, which is within the top 15% of test takers, earning an award of excellence from ETS. I am comfortable helping others prepare for this test.

Study Skills

I graduated from the honors program at Louisiana Tech University with a B.Sc. in mathematics. Over my years in school I have learned to develop the study skills I needed to succeed.

I also have over 5 years of experience in tutoring, mostly in the area of mathematics. I have noticed how important study skills are to the success of students in mathematics. That is why I always address study habits and skills during my tutoring sessions. I help each of my students to develop a study system that works for them. I also keep up-to-date with the latest research into study methods so that my students can benefit from this knowledge.

Explains math in understandable way!

Hollin tutored our son in Trig. She did a fantastic job. She explained it so that he understood it, and went through problems with him step-by-step. He doesn't feel comfortable asking questions in class, but did much better in a one-on-one basis. He had already had to drop Trig twice, but with Hollin's tutoring, finally passed it this Quarter. Hollin was quick to respond to any communications, and
