About Stacey

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!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of my favorite math subjects, and Algebra 1 specifically lays the groundwork for many other math courses. I've tutored students in these concepts for several years, including students at the collegiate level, and am very comfortable in communicating the concepts to students of any age.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 continues to lay the groundwork for higher level math subjects and often touches on real-world applications. As an engineer, translating the world into math (and showing how the math translates to the real world) is one of my primary goals with this subject.

Calculus

Calculus is hands down, my favorite math subject. During my time as a college student, I took Calculus 1, 2, and 3, and feel comfortable communicating the ideas of each level. Whether it's rates of change, summations, or even curvature and reading 3-dimensional graphs, I can help.

Differential Equations

I don't tutor this level of math very often, but because I have a degree in engineering I took this course. I ended the course with a solid B despite having a major family crisis in the middle of that semester. Since I have taken that course, I have also been reviewing the material to make sure it is not neglected and that I stay up to speed on it.

Geometry

Geometry is a subject I've been tutoring more often recently and it's an incredibly rewarding course. Because it covers such a broad spectrum of math topics that don't really fit into Algebra, I find it very rewarding to be able to help students master the subjects and learn new ways of thinking and how to deal with the real-world applications of the math they study

Mechanical Engineering

I have a degree in mechanical engineering from an ABET accredited university, and completed courses covering Thermodynamics, Static Structures, Dynamic motion, Aerodynamic Design, Vibration Theory, Fluid Mechanics, Materials, and 3D Modelling.

Physics

Physics is, of all the subjects I tutor, my absolute favorite. It is the epitome of mathematics and real-world applications and is relevant in virtually every situation we can find ourselves in because its entire goal is to describe the world around us and how it works. Whether it's kinematics, energy transfer, the movement of planets, or the movement of photons, I love it all.

Public Speaking

During my studies at my university for engineering, all of the Junior and Senior engineering students were required to join Toast Masters, the public speaking organization. Additionally, for our final three semesters (as part of our design capstone courses), we would give weekly status presentations to the entire class of engineers about our progress, budgets, and schedule.

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.
