About Ginger

Hello, potential students and parents!

Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your tutoring needs. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma in December of 2004. I have had a state certification (advanced - secondary), and have taught Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry at Guthrie Public High School. I have also been on the approved tutor list for the University of Central Oklahoma for ten years.

Some of my awards include: Department of Mathematics and Statistics' Helen Chastain Scholarship; 2004, Department of Mathematics and Statistics' Tuition Waiver Scholarship; Spring and Fall 2004, President's Honor Roll; Fall 2002, Fall 2003, Spring 2004, Summer 2004, and Fall 2004. Dean's Honor Roll; Spring 2003. I began working toward my Mathematics Degree in 2002. I began my general requirements education at the University of Oklahoma.

My tutoring technique depends on the learning style of the student. I believe that every student is an individual, and it is my job to instruct in a way that makes sense to the student. I will use any or all of the following instructional methods: verbal instruction, written instruction, manipulatives, calculators, and any other method that is necessary for student learning. I give the student (or parent) a detailed description of what is covered in every session. I will also write a list of suggestions to the student as a guide to continued progress and success.

I approach each tutoring session with the following objectives. First, I determine the end goal for the session. Usual goals include exam preparation, homework, getting caught up, tackling a math phobia, or all of the above! Some students have already identified their goals, so this is a quick step. Next, I assess what the student knows in that area. We cannot get to our destination without knowing where we are. This is also a short processes, that allow me to identify gaps. These steps also maximize our time spent by focusing the session.

Thank you for taking the time to give me your consideration!

I'd love to help you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your ACT Math Preparation needs. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. I would make sure that we had the most recent text for ACT Preparation, the structure of the test, and the approved calculator. We can begin practice, with me providing any missing pieces along the way.

Algebra 1

Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your Algebra I. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. I assisted with 7th and 8th grade students of Algebra I at Hefner Middle School as part of my training. This included a period of teaching without assistance. I've also volunteered to tutor Algebra I for "The About Face Academy".

Algebra 2

Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your Algebra II needs. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. I have the experience of teaching Algebra II during my student teaching at Santa Fe High School in Edmond. I am familiar with the state PASS skills and have experience with tutoring those skills.

Elementary Math

I have bachelor's degree in math education, and am on UCO's recommended tutor list. I've taught math in public school, but prefer to teach one-on-one.

GED

I have worked as a precalculus teacher in high school. I have tutored GED students in the past, and feel that I have an effective technique ideal for young or adult students. I have a very high pass rate for math on the GED exam.

Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your Geometry needs. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. This includes a class on College Geometry which explores geometry such as hyperbolic geometry, Euclidean geometry, and others. I have extensive proof writing experience as part of my training. I can help!

Music Theory

I have taken piano lessons for 12 years (including college). I was a competitive pianist for many years. I started teaching piano in high school, and am teaching now. I can help you understand music theory. I have a BS in Mathematics Education, so I have studied effective teaching methods. If you need help understanding music theory, then I can help you.

Kind and very helpful — She has helped my daughter with geometry- she had a 50 prior to her helping my daughter but the grade went up to a 75 and has been rising steadily. She helped my daughter enjoy math (which is a miracle), thank you so much! ...
