Math Tutor: Algebra through Pre-Calculus
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.

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.
Pansy has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 4 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Pansy is very knowledgeable, patient and professional! My daughter has greatly improved her Algebra skills since Pansy started tutoring her. We would highly recommend her!Sharla , 21 lessons with Pansy
Very Patient with our 6 year old
Pansy helped our student finish and understand some math work that we were having difficulty with. Very patient and understanding. Will use her again if we run into road blocks with learning.Maxwell, 1 lesson with Pansy
She helped with AP Calculus. She was on-time and we met at a convenience location. She was very nice. She was prepared with a calc book, calculator and paper for practicing exercises.Mrs., 1 lesson with Pansy
Pansy is excellent. She’s patient and secure in her knowledge base. She explains things in a way that makes it very easy for my kids to understand. My daughter was missing a key step in algebra and Pansy cleared it up with 1 session. My daughter went from an ‘F’ on a quiz in algebra to an ‘A’ on a quiz that covered the same material. My son needed some guidance in calculus and Pansy stepped up to the plate. The calculus he’s covering is intricate and tedious and she’s just as well versed with both the algebra and the calculus. I highly recommend Pansy. She’s very accommodating with her schedule and very kind.Estevan, 4 lessons with Pansy
Knowledgeable and patient
My daughter needed help with geometry, solidifying concepts and receiving clarification. Pansy was able to help her meet these goals. She was available at the times we had suggested. I found her amenable to a meeting location that worked for both of us. She came early to the meeting time and was prepared. While working through problems with my daughter, she showed patience and knowledge.Bella, 1 lesson with Pansy
Very patient tutor and very nice
Pansy taught me about calculus on derivatives. She worked with me through some problems step by step then had me do some by myself and helped me correct some minor mistakes I was making.Xander, 5 lessons with Pansy
Pansy is very patient and knowledgeable. She explains each problem step by step and is open to questions. My son’s grade has improved. She is very reliable and always on time.Tracy, 7 lessons with Pansy
Knowledge and patient
She was great! My daughter received an A on her final despite missing half of the material! I would strongly recommend her. She is very flexible with times and working with your schedule. Pansy knows her material !Alison, 4 lessons with Pansy
I saved writing this till the end of the semester. My daughter improved a full letter grade. Pansy is very patient and knows her subject matter. She helped my child immensely. I was especially grateful that she could come to our house for the lessons. Thanks again.Jessica, 16 lessons with Pansy
