This is my 20th year teaching Mathematics and each year has been more rewarding than the previous one. My current high school is a Tier 1 school due to increased scores from my Geometry students in the 2018-2019 school year!! I have a gift of helping students learn Mathematics with ease and clarity. The testimonials from current and previous clients outline the strengths I have displayed when working with dedicated students. THIS IS A COMMITMENT! I have taught and tutored students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and College Algebra. Under my tutorial services, high school students have passed state-mandated exams and college-bound students have been accepted into their school of choice. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you, or your child, discover the exciting world of Mathematics. MAKE THE CHANGE TODAY.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have been teaching Algebra 1 during the summer for over 10 years. This summer, I returned to high school to teach Algebra 1 freshmen, and I realized that they are missing the basic foundation to succeed in future math courses. I like to bridge the gap, so they feel confident about their procedures and their math self-esteem increases. I like my students to think "outside the box" and use their critical-thinking skills to solve mathematical problems.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I taught Algebra 2 in high school; this past school year, I tutored two clients in Algebra 2. I have two additional, returning clients who will be moving from Geometry to Algebra 2 this year and would like to keep me as a tutor. I have an extensive Algebra background and I pushed my students this year to explore Algebra 2 topics.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have taught Geometry most of my mathematical career. I am familiar with the Geometry High School Assessment, which is no longer an assessment in PG county. Most of my clients come to me for Geometry tutoring because I am able to break it down into simplistic language. I have also taught Geometry to a visually-impaired student and a hearing-impaired student.
Prealgebra

Prealgebra

I have taught Math Lab for 2 years in high school, and I taught middle school math for one year. I am also a certified middle school math teacher in Maryland. I passed the Praxis II for middle school math.

Easy to understand

Going over work, she makes it easy to understand. She’s very nice and patient. If I make a mistake, she takes her time to explain. I definitely recommend her. She also takes her time to explain the work.

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor.

Darees is very easy to talk to. My daughter really enjoys working with her and her grade is improving. I really like the fact that she's getting more comfortable with math.

Nikki, 30 lessons with Darees

Very patient with my daughter!

My daughter, who normally hates Math is now gaining a great appreciation for it due to Darees' teaching style and continued patience.

Committed !!!!!

As a parent, I couldn't be more pleased with Darees. She is committed to my daughter's success. The lesson was to be on a Saturday at the library but consequently we had a horrific snow storm! Instead of canceling the lesson altogether, Darees offered to do the lesson remotely. Since my daughter was desperate for help with her homework, they used email, text messaging and photos to get the work done and done correctly. That to me was going above and beyond! Kudos Darees!!!!

Great Tutor

I really need to tell you about Ms. Darees because she really is something special. My son is studying geometry. Ms. Darees evaluated him and discovered the underlying problem was a weakness in algebra, so she helped him strengthened those skills which allowed him to understand the geometry lesson. She even gave him homework to do so that they could go over on their next visit. I'm lovin' it! Fast forward several weeks after tutoring with Ms. Darees. My son went from geometry scores of 28% to 95%. When I tell you Ms. Darees is someone very special, BELIEVE IT!! She really cares and takes time encouraging and guiding the student until they can do it on their own. Parents, I know you will get this metaphor: it literally reminded me of when I was a little girl and my dad was teaching me to ride a bike holding the back and handle bars running along side me until I was able to balance it and ride by myself. I really love her.
