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 an adjunct instructor at a community college for ten years. I specialize in algebra classes. I have taught numerous sections of algebra 1. For this reason, I have learned to catch the many pitfalls the students often run into. Therefore, I have learned strategies to help the students avoid these pitfalls. Also, I am aware that learning styles and rates are different and I have a lot of experience adapting to that. I look forward to meeting you.

Algebra 2

I have been an adjunct instructor at a community college for ten years. I have worked in the college's math lab for four years. The subject that is most sought out in the lab is Algebra 2. So therefore, I have tutored many students in Algebra 2. I am also familiar with a math program called mymathlab and many of the texas instruments graphing calculators. I have flexible teaching styles to meet the needs of different learners. I look forward to meeting you.

Prealgebra

I have been an adjunct instructor at a community college for ten years. I have taught many sections of pre-algebra. For this reason I have learned many tricks to understanding students' thinking processes and I have developed methods to help them work through their questions. Since I have been doing this for several years I have additional resources which I can provide for you as well I have had students of various ages and I work well with all ages, as well as learning styles. I am very patient and understanding and I look forward to meeting you.

Study Skills

I am a very organized person, which helps me to meet deadlines appropriately. I can help teach your son or daughter organizational skills to turn assignments in on time. I can also help your son or daughter learn effective strategies to study that are personalized to their needs, such as length of time to study, when to take breaks, and what kind of environment will help maximize their study time.

Trigonometry

My specialties are in math are algebra. However before taking the trigonometry test I reviewed the material. As I was reviewing the material it started coming back to me. I am confident that I can tutor trigonometry. I will always stay a lesson or two ahead of you as to be prepared for the next session. I have been a math teacher for ten years and I am very good when it comes to preparation and finding out things I do not know.
