Bio

Hello, I am a math teacher who has taught in public school for over 25 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.

Hello, I am a math teacher who has taught in public school for over 25 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.

Great tutor

Mrs. R has helped our daughters tremendously. She is patient and lets our daughter do the work. She guides her through the problems. We really appreciate her.

Kenneth, 8 lessons with Vanessa

Great tutor

Made my son feel at ease with math concepts, he wished she was his normal math teacher. He felt more confident in math and was actually excited about the next session.

MARY, 22 lessons with Vanessa

Great precalculus-trigonometry tutor

Vanessa worked with my 16-year-old daughter and in the first session was able to boost my daughter's confidence about her abilities in college level precalculus trigonometry. My daughter described her as smart, easy to talk to, "really good at teaching" and very nice too. We were able to meet within 24 hours of contact. Will definitely continue to hire her throughout the semester.

Fall in love with math!

Vanessa helped my daughter fall in love with math again! My daughter had lost the passion for math that she once enjoyed because she was lost once it came to the higher level math. Now the light is coming on again. Her exact words to me , " mom I understand math again. I don't have a headache anymore when I do math." I absolutely recommend her, and will continue to use her even after my daughter takes the Sat. Thank you Wyzant without you, I wouldn't have found this wonderful math tutor.
