Tutoring Math, Science, Writing and more
I attended Oklahoma Christian University to study Mechanical Engineering in 2007. In 2009, I began tutoring in an on-campus tutoring office and fell in love with tutoring. I graduated in December of 2011, but decided to continue pursuing private tutoring. I'm often asked why I don't pursue something relevant to my degree, but tutoring is what I love. Whether it's a student improving their grades so that they can get into a better college, or just seeing a student's confidence increase when...
I attended Oklahoma Christian University to study Mechanical Engineering in 2007. In 2009, I began tutoring in an on-campus tutoring office and fell in love with tutoring. I graduated in December of 2011, but decided to continue pursuing private tutoring. I'm often asked why I don't pursue something relevant to my degree, but tutoring is what I love. Whether it's a student improving their grades so that they can get into a better college, or just seeing a student's confidence increase when they start mastering material, this entire job is magical.
In the tutoring office on campus, many of the students I helped were disadvantaged, and our program was mandatory for any students that were admitted with an ACT score below 18. Many of the students that came through that office would only stay in college for one year, but many more would learn how to manage their time and gain the confidence they needed to succeed and complete their degree. During my time in this tutoring office, I was told by several students that they'd always believed they were just too stupid and that they could never do college. Each one of those students would end up completing their degree, either at OC, or after transferring to another University.
When it comes to subjects, Calculus and Physics are my absolute favorites, but I often tutor Algebra 1 & 2, College Algebra, Statistics, Geometry, Trigonometry, Chemistry, Physical Science, Spanish 1 & 2 (although I can usually stumble through up to Spanish 3), English & Writing, and History/Government. I prefer working 1-on-1 with students instead of splitting my attention, to make sure that the communication is clear and the concepts are understood. I work based on the idea that everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it will live its entire life believing that it is stupid. My goal is to translate the concept into whatever way makes the most sense so that anybody can master the skills for whatever course they are enrolled.
I also try to be flexible with my 24-hour cancellation policy, because sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. If a cancellation happens I offer make-up classes on Friday afternoons and Saturdays. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to cancel!
Strong math and science skills are a requirement for a degree in engineering, and my school of engineering also placed a great deal of importance on communication. Because of this, I have helped many students from many walks of life excel in their classes
If you're looking for anything from a little extra help up to a secondary teacher/professor, please don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to helping you!
Knowledgeable in Physics and explains the subject very well
She is very patient and knows what she is doing. Very good at describing what is going on with the particle in physics. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍Matthew, 2 lessons with Stacey
Very Pleasant, Patient and Knowledgeable.
My son enjoyed learning from Stacey.. she even gave us different websites to asst in particular subjects to work on, in his spare time. Grateful we got lucky in finding her!Arica, 9 lessons with Stacey
Just what I needed
As usual, Stacey was extremely helpful. She showed up early and was able to walk me through my physics questions. Money well spent.Landon, 14 lessons with Stacey
Good skills to click with students.
Stacey has a great way to explain difficult, abstract concepts, and the patient to repeated if necessary. Her knowledge in calculus make it looks easy and she transmits that feeling to the student.Omar, 18 lessons with Stacey
