About Theresa

Ace your Spring 2015 math course. Contact me if you need help on a regular basis, an as-needed basis, or for test preparation. You can also contact me to further discuss my qualifications.

I have taken a ton of math courses and enjoyed them all. Algebra is my favorite, but I also enjoy trigonometry, calculus and linear algebra. I am looking forward to helping students understand and apply formulas, theorems, proofs, etc. Contact me if you want math to become second nature to you.

Although I have a BS degree in Finance, I started out as a Mathematics major and continued to take math and math related courses. Because I switched from mathematics to business, I know from experience how crucial a solid foundation in mathematics is to excelling in other subjects.

Sometimes the teaching style in the classroom does not match the learning style of the student. Sometimes the text used in class does not have the best explanation of a particular concept. I will work at helping a student find the method and resources that work best for them.

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 taken advanced math courses from junior high up to the college level and have excelled in them. I also have experience helping other students.

Algebra 2

Algebra has always been my best subject. I first fell in love with Algebra. My strong foundation in Algebra led to my success in other math courses.

Bible Studies

I have taken Bible courses at Liberty University including OT Survey, NT Survey, Apologetics and Theology. I have a 3.9 GPA at Liberty. I am currently working towards a Masters in Ministry at Piedmont Baptist College. So far, I have only completed the Hermeneutics course. I received an "A" in that course.

Microsoft Excel

I have gotten A's in Excel at the college level and have become proficient in Excel through college coursework and job experience.

Prealgebra

A strong foundation in Algebra is important for succeeding in later math courses. These skills are also needed in subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Economics and Accounting. I am prepared to explain how to solve Algebra problems and apply the concepts to other subjects.

Precalculus

I have taken college level Calculus 1, Calculus 2, and Calculus 3. I have also taken Calculus related courses like Econometrics. Because of my experience, I have a thorough understanding of the basics and how to apply them.

Very smart and encouraging tutor. — Theresa helped me get started on reviewing in my weakest areas. She helped me to not feel so overwhelmed. This was good because I have a lot of class work to complete. Right now we are focusing on reviewing integers, fractions, and other algebraic rules, and terms. I am excited about continuing my studies with her. Her professionalism and personality was exactly what I was looking for. ...
