## Great and knowledgeable tutor!

Gabriela, 10 lessons with PatriciaPatricia has been very helpful, patient and accommodating with my son's schedule and needs. He enjoys working with her and she has been very helpful in improving his grades and understanding in calculus. He attends to Wake Forest and his first year taking calculus has been challenging, but Patricia has helped him a lot and he feels more confident and positive about this subject. We are extremely happy with the services provided by Patricia in this past semester and with the overall...

I have been a math teacher for over 35 years. I teach every math topic from 4th grade math through college calculus. I enjoy math and can show you how to be successful with this subject.

#### General Computer

I began working with computers in 1980. There have been many changes since then, however, I have remained current with these changes. Although I began working on an Apple, most of my experience has been with a PC. The machine I work on now has Windows 7 and office 2007. I am able to figure out most programs and continue to help my colleagues learn the programs with which they are working. Although I don't do much work on the inside of the computer (hardware), give some software, and I will figure it out.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have successfully taught algebra to students of all ages. With one-on-one tutoring, students soon begin to understand the concepts and become successful in applying them.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I have helped many students with their Algebra 2. Without a good background in Algebra it is very difficult to succeed in many subjects. Not only do I help students bring up their grades, but I also try to make sure that they understand the material as we go over it. With one-on-one tutoring, I am able to see exactly where each student is having difficulty, and address those individual areas. Soon the students understand what they are doing and their grades will improve.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have taught calculus on the college level and have been tutoring this subject on a yearly basis. In the classroom situation, it is not uncommon for the student to miss or not completely understand all of the concepts covered. As a tutor I can see where the individual student is having difficulty and concentrate or those concepts. This helps the student understand the material without falling behind, and gives them a better understanding so they can move on with each lesson.

Precalculus is a subject that I enjoy very much. Many students do very well in the one-on-one setup with a tutor that can explain concepts which seemed difficult in the classroom.

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

I have been teaching for over 30 years, many of which included courses from Geometry through Calculus that all include trigonometry. Geometry introduces a student to at least the basic three trig functions, sin(x), cos(x), and tan(x). I have also taught Pre-Calculus using the ABeka curriculum and text book. This curriculum is very heavy in the trigonometry area. I have also taught calculus which teaches the student how to find the derivative and integral of the trig functions.

I have assisted many students in passing standardized tests, including the G.E.D. Being able to understand what a problem is asking you to do is often the largest stumbling block. I will help you learn what is needed for each problem and you will soon be able to see your success. The most important part is to get started with the help that you need, and you have already done that by contacting Wyzant. Now let's get started with your tutoring.

## Fantastic tutor. Relates to every age range and problem

Patricia helped my daughter taking Sophomore Math 2 in 8th grade. My daughter was struggling with some of the harder end of year concepts because of large teacher turn over and in preparation for her EOG and EOC testing. Patti was able to comfort my daughter and after two short sessions my daughter is a new person with restored confidence and an excellent understanding of the material. I would highly recommend Patti to anyone in search of a Math tutor. Thank you Patti you are appreciated.
