About Wanda

I am a retired, NC Certified high school math teacher. I taught AP Statistics in New Hanover County and with the North Carolina Virtual Public School. I was an AP Reader (grader) for the AP Statistics Exam in 2014, just prior to my retirement.

I can relate to both struggling and high achieving AP Statistics students. As a classroom teacher, I spent many hours after school tutoring those students who struggled to get the material in a classroom with 30+ students. In a one-on-one situation, they often flourish. As a high achiever myself - I was Valedictorian of Apex High School in 1968 and a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Michigan School of Engineering - I can relate to the desire to make A's and the stress that arises when one has signed up for too many difficult courses at the same time. Students often expect AP Statistics to be "an easy AP" since it is not Calculus. AP Statistics is, however, a deceptively difficult course. It is not a typical math course. It is more like a science course that uses math and the concepts are often not intuitive. I have a talent for uncovering the true needs of individual students and giving them exactly what they need to succeed. When tutoring AP Statistics, my focus depends on the student's needs. I am always cognizant of what the student may need to succeed in the class itself. If the student is planning to take the AP Exam, I give extra instruction on the expectations of those grading the AP Statistics Exam.

I expect to be an excellent tutor for my students. I welcome feedback from students and parents and I will not bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied. I do my best to accommodate students, especially when they have tests coming up. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy; however, I will do my best to reschedule if the reason for missing was urgent and 24-hour notice was not possible.

I meet with students in their homes or nearby public facilities such as libraries. Public rooms in apartment complexes often provide good tutoring spaces.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in math!

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.

Statistics

I taught AP Statistics for 4 years in a large (1600+ students) NC high school and for 2 years with the North Carolina Virtual Public School. I was a Reader for the AP Statistics Exam this past June. AP Readers are given extensive training on how to grade the free-response questions on the AP Exam. This training gave me unique and valuable insights on the preparation needed to do well on this exam.

AP Statistics is an extremely rigorous statistics course. I found it to be more rigorous than the introductory statistics course at NC State. My training in AP Statistics has prepared me for tutoring all levels of high school statistics and introductory college statistics.
