About Amber

While pursuing my undergraduate degree I began tutoring math through a program that worked with non-traditional age students and first generation college students. Many of these students were enrolled in pre-college level math and had negative experiences with math in their pasts, including negative experiences with past teachers, math anxiety, and a lack of confidence in their abilities.

Thus we worked on building confidence through persistence in problem solving as much as we worked on mathematical concepts. I have found that the students I have worked with who have struggled with math for many years have been the unfortunate victims of an educational system that treats mathematics as a set of procedures rather than a way of thinking and problem solving, and that values quick answers rather than well reasoned responses.

I will take your questions and concerns seriously and will assist to the best of my ability. If you are willing to work hard to advance your skills, I will work hard to right beside you in support of that goal.

I can assist with Elementary Math through Algebra and have spent many hours working with college students in the areas of Pre-Algebra, Introductory Algebra, and College Algebra. I am patient and will not rush you to a solution. I promise to provide a safe, and non-judgmental learning environment, where you can learn as much from a wrong answer as you can from a correct one.

If you have math anxiety, are intimidated by the math classes you are in, are not confident about your mathematical abilities, and want to work hard to understand the concepts that you are struggling with in order to grow your mathematical skills and confidence, please contact me to arrange an online meeting time. I am available on a recurring basis or on a one-time basis to help with specific homework questions.
