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.

Nice tutor

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

Understandable

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.

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.

Great tutor

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.

Knowledgeable, patient and dedicated tutor

Pansy is being a great tutor. She has being working with my daughter since the end of September and I observed great improvement in my daughters understanding of the subjects and her grades. Pansy not only is great teaching the subjects, but she goes home and select material that maybe helpful for my daughter. She brings the materials at the next class. Pansy cares for her student. Pansy is very knowledgeable, patient and dedicated tutor. We will continue working with her. We are very fortunate that we were able to find her. Thank you Pansy for helping my daughter.
