About Wendy

My name is Wendy. I have a secondary school (middle and high) teaching certificate in math from IL, and an endorsement in psychology, and experience with most other subjects. I have been teaching for the past 20 years and more, usually in math, but often helping with many other subjects. I have developed a number of little tricks to help with remembering many steps and different methods. I try to make learning fun and develop a comfort with it. I don't want math to be boring or tricky, so I try to meet those issues. As a tutor, I promise to be punctual, reliable, and fair. I will do my best to help you to achieve your academic goals.

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

I have done ACT prep for about 6 years' of students. I know how to prep for these questions.

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored Algebra I for over 20 years. I have developed many memory methods and enjoy taking the mystery out of combining letters and numbers.

Algebra 2

I have taught and tutored Algebra 2 for over 20 years. Through that time, I have found and developed many memory helps that are often very odd, which makes them memorable.

Calculus

I have been tutoring and successfully teaching calculus for the past 5 years, plus. I have a few odds tricks to help with understanding and am developing more as I work with the subject.

Chemistry

Though I usually teach math, I have a number of hours in chemistry in my bachelor's degree. I get the opportunity to tutor chemistry often during time in my school's math lab. I enjoy working with chemistry because it is a concrete area to apply the math learned in algebra and geometry.

Geometry

I have taught geometry for over 20 years, and doing so successfully. I have found that approaching geometry like another math or algebra class does not help with understanding. Instead, it takes a retraining in the brain, and I see my job as facilitating that training.

Linear Algebra

During my bachelor's degree, I took linear algebra and passed. Then, while working on my master's degree, I earned an A in the graduate level of Linear. For anything I have forgotten, I am good at reading the text and reteaching myself, and then my student.

Prealgebra

I have taught pre-algebra at the middle-school, high school, and even college levels for over 20 years. At each level, the difficulties students face are different, but seem to boil down to a few things. I have learned that I am good at identifying the difficulty and helping the student around it, no matter what their age.

Precalculus

Precalculus is the beginning of the more theoretical math classes, and, as such, is less concrete than students are generally used to. One thing that I try to do in this case is to help the student regain the firmer footing that came with algebra, and seems missing here. This is a matter of vocabulary and knowing how to look at the problems that are asked. Make it seem more familiar.

SAT Math

I have helped students with ACT math preparation for over 20 years. While the ACT is not the SAT, they do have similarities, and in that time I have also taught all of the math involved. As such, I feel confident in helping your student to prepare for this test.

Trigonometry

Who ever thought that the Pythagorean Theorem could have so much importance in everything around us. It starts with sin, cos, and tan. Then we flip them to sec, cosec, and cot. And then are the inverses. Not to mention using radians and pi where degrees used to be enough. Trigonometry is memorization and application. Using the unit circle will seem easy, once I've had a chance to guide you through it. It is always amazing when all those trig identities fall into place together into one simple answer.

Wendy has been a huge help!

Our daughter was struggling with Geometry and she fell behind a bit so when we realized we can't really help her, we decided to get her a tutor. Wendy has been coming once a week for a few weeks now and she has really helped our daughter understand the material. Sometimes it just takes a little extra help and we are so blessed to have Wendy to explain a little further. Our daughter has been doi
