Study Skills

Study Skills

Study skills is important for students to succeed in school. Sometimes, it is a matter of time management, other times it is organizational techniques. Whatever the issue, I can help. It is also important to understand a particular student's learning style. When studying for my teaching certification, I took a class on learning styles in college and found that no two students are alike, and what works for one will not necessarily work for others. For study skills, organization, time management, and an understanding of how the student learns are the most important pieces. I will work with the student to create a learning and study plan that will meet his or her individual needs.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored algebra for over 20 years. I love Algebra, it is the foundation of all Math. It can be a difficult concept, because suddenly the alphabet is along side numbers and students tend to shut down. Math seems like a foreign language, but I will teach you in a language you can understand. I will teach you tricks and strategies to help you understand concepts! After working with me you will feel more successful in the classroom and your grades will improve after just a couple weeks!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored numerous students in Algebra 2 and have helped them see their grade increase. Algebra 2 focuses on advanced mathematical operations, such as those pertaining to complex numbers, factorization, linear systems, matrices and elementary functions, which comprise the essential knowledge base for trigonometry and pre-calculus. Often times, students struggle because they lack the essential foundational knowledge or skills to work through the problems with speed and fluency. When teaching Algebra 2, I first focus on instilling proper technique and effective problem-solving habits that are not always covered thoroughly in standard high school courses. Algebra is my favorite subject to tutor, it is the foundation of math courses.

Very knowledgeable and helpful!

We thorougly reviewed the specific Praxis content that I wanted to go over along with other materials. She gave me extra practice test materials and gave excellent advice on test taking and teaching in general. Highly recommended! Thank you for your help.

Jaclyn , 1 lesson with Betty Ann

Great!!

Betty is very helpful with providing study material. She is organized and patient. I'm working to pass the Math Praxis and plan on going through each of the 4 sections of the test with her in order to pass the test. She doesn't mind explaining things several times or going over the same material if needed. She has a friendly personality. I have had about 4 meeting with her and I am happy with how things are going so far!! Thanks, Betty!!

Deborah, 6 lessons with Betty Ann

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Betty Ann has given our daughter strategies to aid her in the anxiety of test taking as well as helping her to understand her lessons and assist her in processing the problems on her level.

Paula , 5 lessons with Betty Ann

Great at presenting options for learning

Betty Ann is helping my daughter look at math from a different point of view so that it makes more sense to her. She is a creative type so it needs to be presented differently than they do in class. Daughter said it is definitely different from how they do it in school. Betty Ann really seems to be helping her.

Terry, 26 lessons with Betty Ann

Great teacher!

Betty Ann is very knowledgable, patient and understanding teacher. She is tutoring my daughter in Geometry. Betty Ann has a few tricks up her sleeve to make Geometry look like an intriguing puzzles rather than unmanageable pile of theorems and postulates.

Elena, 19 lessons with Betty Ann

Helpful SAT Math Prep

Betty Ann helped my teen, who has always struggled with applying math concepts, prepare for the SAT. She worked on strengthening weak areas; also, went over test taking and strategy skills. By being better prepared, my teen's score went up 50 points after five sessions. We decided to continue with the tutoring in preparation for the next SAT. Betty Ann will provide the necessary math packets, and will work with your schedule.

Stella, 9 lessons with Betty Ann

We are off to a great start!

My son had his first session with Betty Ann and she made a great first impression and he was immediately comfortable with her.

Sandy, 4 lessons with Betty Ann

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

First lesson was awesome! Took her time with my son, pick up on little things that he does and does not do. He feels better about the SSAT already! We will have future lessons for sure!
