About Penny

I have 26 years of experience as a certified math teacher in the state of Oklahoma. I have taught 7th grade Math up to AP Calculus in my 26 years of teaching. In the last 8 years, I have taught 8th grade Math, Algebra 1, and Algebra II. I have most recently taught 8th grade Algebra 1 to accelerated 8th grade students. I have also taught Algebra 1 Part 1 to classes that were taking Algebra in two years at a slower pace.

I am the Math Department Head at my current school. I am responsible for leadership of the six math teachers in our department which includes curriculum mapping, curriculum pacing, testing, etc. in our building. I have been successful in teaching my students with a very high passing rates on state testing for the last 8 years. I consider myself self driven, analytically, and a good math teacher. I have mentored student teachers in my classroom and also first year teachers at my school. I have recently tutored a college student student for his GRE test, he was very successful in getting his Math score up after our tutoring sessions.

I believe that every child can learn. It is the teacher's responsibility to find what makes each student learn and motivate them to be successful. I have a proven track record of successful students for the last 26 years. I tutor students everyday in a classroom setting and on an individual basis. I enjoy working with students and helping them reach their full potential.

I will try to be flexible with schedules. Please notify me within 24 hours if canceling. I will work with students and parents to meet all needs. I look forward to meeting my future students to tutor. Thank You

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.

Common Core

I have been teaching math from 7th grade to High School for the last 27 years. I have taught all subjects from 7th grade math, 8th grade math, to Trig, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. Recently, I have been teaching 8th grade Algebra to Accelerated 8th grade students. The last 5 years, my school building has been teaching the common core standards in our curriculum. I have been teaching from a common core Algebra 1 textbook for the last 5 years also. I know the standards and feel confident I can help students with questions coming from most common core standards. I am also the department head in my building over 7 math teachers. We have attended several professional development on the common core standards and also teach out of Common Core Edition Textbooks.
