##### About Sonya

My love for teaching mathematics began in the eighth grade when I tutored my best friend helping her bring her grade from an F to a B in a few short months. I was once in the remedial math class, so I know what it is like to struggle with the material. I learned to persevere and progressed to obtain my BS and MS degrees in mathematics. My undergraduate work included certification as a secondary math teacher. Through college I worked in the mathematics tutor lab and have continued to tutor as I raised my kids. I also taught homeschool math classes working one-on-one and with small groups. I have more than thirty years experience tutoring.

I have a passion for seeing "the light of understanding" come on as I work with my students. No two students learn in precisely the same way. I strive to incorporate multiple learning styles as I work with students maximizing their learning potential. My years of experience have given me a vast array of tools and tricks to use with my students to help students reach their goals.

I focus on teaching mathematics as a form of communication. This means that I strive to teach the language of mathematics. I focus on laying a clear understanding of the vocabulary. I then build the concepts followed by their application to solve problems. This approach is very effective with geometry, but works with all courses.

My primary emphasis has been high school level mathematics. Consequently I also incorporate general study skills in my lessons, especially when tutoring Algebra 1 and Geometry.

I generally work in my home so that I can have access to all of my resources should a need arise.

Please give 24 hours notice when canceling a lesson unless it is a true emergency. Please be considerate and cancel your lesson should you become ill. Any student wearing noticeable fragrances will be required to reschedule, essential oils included.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your goals.
