About Sandra

Teaching has always remained a part and parcel of my life. Let's face it learning is an ongoing process that never cease to end. My first teaching experience began long back, when I used to tutor my fellow classmates in high school with their mathematics and science questions. The one big lesson I learned from many of the fellow classmates that I helped is, they all had the will to learn but just needed some one to explain the concept in a way that is easy for them to comprehend. This experience shaped my thought about teaching all along. I learned that teaching is not merely a transfer of information, but rather a process that shapes the mind and allows to build confidence and skills in a student, so that they can take on newer tasks.

I graduated from Fairmont State University in the beautiful wild and wonderful state of West Virginia with a Bachelor's degree. I majored in political science with a minor in mathematics. My passion for teaching carried through from my high school life in to the college life as well. As a senior I worked as a undergraduate teaching assistant in an introductory mathematics class. My primary responsibility included an hour of recitation where I would work with the students to solve homework problems and any other questions they may have on the week's material. I also volunteered to help students who came in to the MATHCLUB with questions. While I am not busy with school work and classes, I have always assisted my nieces and nephews with their elementary school science, grammar, phonics and reading questions.

After graduating from college I worked for the federal government. Although I was busy with work, I did not give up my passion for teaching. I continued to be a private tutor in many areas of mathematics, science and English. I have helped numerous students achieve their target scores on SAT, AP and ACT exams. My tutoring sessions are always thorough and all student/parent(s) concerns taken seriously. I always take the time with a student and work like today was my first day on the job. There is never a dull moment. My tutoring sessions are not only productive but also fun filled, so students find learning lot more enjoyable.

Above all, I care about each and every student and their will to succeed.

Please do take the time to read through my profile and the subjects I am approved to tutor. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me, so we can get stated on answering those intriguing math, english or science questions you may have

Best Regards
SANDY
