About Vanessa

Hello, I am a math teacher who has taught in public school for over 19 years. I received my bachelors' degree in mathematics and a masters' degree in secondary education from the same university. In those years I have learned that you never stop learning. I recently returned to college and received a masters in accounting.

While in college I tutored others who found math a bit difficult. I enjoy tutoring for two reasons. The first reason is it gives me the opportunity to use the knowledge, skills, and experience gained over the years to assist students. Also enjoy seeing the "light bulb" come on when a student gain that knowledge. I use unique tutoring styles such as songs, rhymes, and visual arts to ensure students even on the lowest level can understand. I use real world examples and make learning math fun.

I am able to identify and understand a students' learning style to supply lessons that will help a student gain the knowledge needed. I can relate to the struggles students have in math such as the fears that hinder them from learning new concepts as well as their lack of confidence. I am able to break concepts down to a level that makes it easier for any age level learn. I know that with the 3 d's dedication, determination, and desire any student can learn.

I also love to share what I call a gift with others who may or may not possess this same gift. It is because I think of my math skills as a gift that I am able to enjoy tutoring and make it enjoyable for others.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 19 years of teaching experience in the public school system and five years in elementary school. I have over 25 years tutoring all school age children. While I am specialized in secondary mathematics, I have been a volunteer tutor of all age groups in my neighborhood, for my church, and the surrounding areas.

I will identify your child learning style and develop lessons based on the style that he/she learns best. I will create lessons that are fun and aid a child memorizing.I use manipulatives to assist the student to move from the concrete to the abstract.

Prealgebra

I have worked with students taking Prealgebra for over 20 years and have acquired teaching techniques that allow students to grow from wherever their abilities begin. I use different learning styles and create a fun atmosphere to help students want to learn.

Trigonometry

I have 40 years of experience learning, teaching, and perfecting my knowledge of mathematics as a teacher and student. I am able to make the complex simple while incorporating real world examples. I also use strategies that are fun and memorable.
