About Darees

This is my 13th year teaching Mathematics and I have been exposed to several challenges along the way. Within my first two years of teaching, I taught Geometry to a hearing-impaired student and a visually-impaired student. During that time, in addition to teaching Mathematics, I taught one class of Spanish 1. I have taught and tutored students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Integrated Math, and Pre-Calculus. I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade Math at a Charter school in the District, but I have also taught in Prince George's County and a private school in the District of Columbia. I have helped students pass state-mandated exams and assisted college-bound students with entrance and placement exam preparation. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you, or your child with the exciting world of Mathematics.

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.

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

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

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

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.
