About Pansy

I got a BS in Mathematics from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in 1991. After teaching high school for three years in El Paso, Texas, and teaching middle school math in Belen, New Mexico, I returned to New Mexico Tech to obtain my Master's Degree in Mathematics. I taught at the Valencia branch college of the University of New Mexico for approximately five years. I taught all levels of algebra, Calculus, and discrete math. After retiring, I have tutored in my home - mostly algebra.

I use the inquiry method by leading the student to solutions on their own by asking questions to draw upon the student's knowledge. I also use lots of examples. I teach students to recognize groups or classes of problems and what approach should be used for that class of problems. I think learning to classify problems by type is one of the most valuable tools in learning mathematics.

I am a lifelong learner, and continue to take courses online. I enjoy learning and I especially enjoy doing math problems. I recently took Calculus III online and got a Certificate of Distinction. This was, of course, review for me and also fun.

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.

Prealgebra

I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics and have taught algebra at all levels.
