About Theresa

I recently received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Georgia. During my training as a mathematician, I've tutored hundreds of college students working with all types of math subjects in several different university drop-in tutoring labs and during my personal offices hours as a university instructor. I've always loved the one-on-one interactions during tutoring, since they me the chance to understand how my student is thinking of and understanding the material. Everyone has a different way of approaching math, and I love the challenge of finding a way to explain things that makes it "click" for each student.

I've found that I can make things click for anyone, and the most rewarding part of tutoring is seeing my students begin to enjoy math more and feel more confidence in their math skills than they ever thought was possible.

My experience teaching college classes such as PreCalculus and Calculus gives me valuable insight into what college professors are looking for in your written work. I also have extensive experience teaching and assisting with classes designed to teach future grade school math teachers the new Common Core mathematics standards, so I am well-versed in what is expected of younger students.


My training as a mathematician enables me to decipher what basically any math book is trying to say (I speak the "language" of math fluently), so feel free to come to me with ANY problem you have! While working as a tutor in university drop-in labs, I tutored students in courses ranging from calculator-based math modeling to statistics and multivariate calculus. In addition, I led test reviews for math modeling and have worked with high school students during UGA's Math Circles.

I've taught several courses at the university level: Calculus (for economics majors), Precalculus, Calculus I for Science and Engineering Majors, and Common Core Arithmetic for Future Elementary School Teachers.

I'm especially qualified to tutor abstract and linear algebra, as the bulk of my thesis work is based upon those subjects. The more crazy and abstract the math, the better!

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.
