University of Nebraska at Kearney (Math and Comp Sci)
So you'd like a little extra help to understand your math homework? Awesome. I'd love to help. I have a degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I majored in Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as spent two years teaching Common Core 7th/8th/pre-algebra math and Common Core Integrated Math I/Math II (consisting mostly of Algebra 1 and Geometry along with some Trig) in high school. I'd have to say my favorite part of being a public school teacher was helping students one-on-one in after school tutoring sessions. Also, I've been "breaking it down" for many years now since we have four children of our own, ages 16 - 21, who, of course, always had math homework!
Not only will we work together during our tutoring sessions, but I'll be able to point you to online math and/or logic games and videos that will help you get tackle any trouble spots. Math doesn't have to be a drag. :) You'll have your own personal education plan... it's so rewarding for both of us as you find yourself capable of checking off one concept after another.

Carol is awesome! She is very patient and engaged for the whole hour. She is pushing my daughter beyond her level. She equips you with tools and practice material until the next lesson. She is a God sent. We are grateful to have found her.
She gave my daughter confidence in the first session. My daughter's exact words were, "I'm stress-free, smiling and this was so much easier than doing my homework until 9pm last night!" Highly recommend Carol!
My son is kind of difficult and if you want to keep him engaged, you need to make the things more interesting. Carol knows how to make things interesting which is extremely important for gifted children if you want to keep them engaged.. Thank you!
Carol is easy to reach, responds usually within a couple hours. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and seems genuinely concerned about the student.
Carol tutored my three kids this summer -- ages 7, 12 and 14. Carol connected with each child, found common ground and absolutely met them at their own, individual levels. The kids looked forward to her visits and they actually enjoyed doing math in the middle of summer vacation. She is smart, personable, prepared and just simply an excellent teacher.
Carol has been a great encouragement to our 10 year old daughter. She struggled with 4th grade math, and needed help to move forward. Carol has been kind, and patient, an excellent, positive teacher who has the ability to help kids do their best! Our daughter looks forward to and enjoys their sessions! Carol is easy to work with, very accommodating, and seriously considers the needs of our child. We would highly recommend her as a tutor for your child!
I have two girls that are in 4th and 5th grade. If you ask them what's their least favorite subject they will tell you math in a split second. I'm excited to see that they are looking forward to Carol coming and excited about learning math. They already in this short amount of time have started to feel more confident about the work they are doing. Even when the tutor leaves they choose to play math games on the iPad instead of silly games. I'm very excited to see how far they come. I love the positive feedback Carol gives my girls. She is a great fit for my daughters.
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.
