## Stephanie made a difference

Paul, 26 lessons with StephanieStephanie has made a dramatic difference in our son's high school experience. Math has been a struggle for him and it was starting to drag down his spirits as well as his other classes. Unfortunately it was not a topic that my wife or I were able to help him with so we turned to Stephanie. She caught him up and boosted his confidence in math. This extra confidence spilled into all his classes and before we knew it, all his grades started shooting up. She is a confident teacher who he...

I have enjoyed the personal gratification of tutoring since high school. Since I was 15 years old, I have shared my knowledge and love of mathematics with people of all ages. I attended Spelman College and Georgia Institute of Technology, where I received my Bachelor of Science in both Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering. I also tutored my peers at these institutions

I bring both personality and creativity to math sessions, and I am concerned with the intellectual and emotional well-being...

ACT Math,
#### ACT Math

The key is to success in ACT Math is to get the student confident and comfortable with the format and the type of logic/strategy needed to answer the questions. Sometimes students know the concepts, but don't understand what is being asked of them in each problem. Others get nervous because they only get 1 minute for each question--there are 60 questions that must be answered in 60 minutes.
My job will be to get her/him past the concern of time and content being asked in each problem. To do this, I teach efficient subject sessions, and follow those with practice problems, homework, and practice tests.

Stephanie has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **2 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Patient and knowledgeable tutor.

Stephanie was awesome. I will be using her again. She took her time and made sure my son understood the problems. Thanks for a great job. My son understood with he needed to work on.

Jovanna, 1 lesson with Stephanie

## Outstanding Tutor

Stephanie helped my 7th daughter with algebra. She was extremely knowledgeable, relatable, engaging and fun! She is by far one of the best tutors we’ve ever experienced. We highly recommend and will use her again.

Wendi, 6 lessons with Stephanie

## Knowledgeable and patient

Stephanie has exceeded my expectations so far. She came prepared with a lesson plan to mitigate some weak areas in ACT math my child has. I am currently on my third week.

Jamil, 10 lessons with Stephanie

## Knowledgeable and Patient

Stephanie is very warm and knowledgeable. This was just the first lesson and she already has instilled confidence in my son where he was completing problems all by himself by the end of the session.

LaChelle, 8 lessons with Stephanie

## Great algebra tutor

My teen was not too happy I set up algebra tutoring! Stephanie was very friendly and made my teen feel comfortable. She ended up loving the session and finally felt she understood her homework!

Kim, 6 lessons with Stephanie

## Brilliant, knowledgeable, and patient

Stephanie is an excellent math tutor for my daughter who loves her teaching style and is earning A’s under her tutorship. Se explains and demonstrates concepts so that they are easy to understand. She’s very professional and I give her the highest recommendation.

## Knowledgeable, Thorough, and Prepared Tutor

Stephanie helped my son review for a Precalculus exam. She helped give him a foundation and confidence that his teacher was not able to provide. We are thankful and will continue to use her services.

RParks, 4 lessons with Stephanie

## Awesome Tutor

My daughter loved how Stephanie taught her math concepts that were previously difficult for her to understand. In the beginning, we experienced difficulty connecting to the platform. Although it wasn't Stephanie's fault she handled the situation with grace and was flexible to adapt. We are grateful considering this was our first time using the platform. Stephanie was awesome!
