About Sandy

I have a combined total of 25 years teaching experience in both public and private schools, teaching all math subjects in grades 6th-12th. I have experience teaching elementary math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-calculus.

My favorite subject is Pre-calculus teaching functions and their inverses. I have most success teaching students trigonometry, when they come to me chapters behind. I use tricks and methods that will help students fit all of the sections together like a big jigsaw puzzle. I use visual aids and graphic organizers that will help students with understanding. The leave their tutoring secession with materials to use at home.

When attending a tutoring secession, homework problems will be addressed first. It is important to leave a secession with homework completed or at least understood. Reviewing past sections in a chapter is a second goal. The last part of a tutoring secession would be used to preview the future lesson for understanding before the classroom teacher presents the material.

Looking to complete a project? Need help constructing a poster? I can help you get that perfect look on your project.Just gather your materials and add them to mine, and start that project!

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

I have taught Algebra at all levels including remediation to honors. I have experience teaching Algebra I at both the middle and high school levels. I also tutor students weekly and help them with any homework issues.

Algebra 2

I have taught all levels of Algebra I, II, and III during my 20 years of teaching experience. I have been directors on curriculum teams that have developed the proper timing and sequencing for these courses. I have created special graph paper for teaching conic sections.

Elementary Math

Elementary students are great to teach. I have the patience and the calmness needed for teaching this age. I taught elementary math for six years. Elementary teachers need to have mastered all topics in mathematics including Algebra, Geometry, and statistics. The best elementary teachers are the ones who have previous experience teaching middle school. I have ten years of teaching middle school, and I know what elementary student really need for success. Besides math content, they need to develop confidence, memorizing skills, and the love for math to be successful. I can help students love math.

Geometry

I have taught Geometry for many years in public high school.

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is my passion and my preferred course to teach. I have over 20 years experience teaching all levels of Pre-Calculus. I have developed and written entire courses which were integrated with general physics. My greatest success is with students who need extra help organizing all the notes for greater comprehension. I have tons of tricks that help average students master the formulas that need to be memorized. Call me if math is not your strongest, but you need Pre-Calculus to get to college.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus are my passions and my preferred courses to teach. I have over 20 years experience teaching all levels of Pre-Calculus, and sub topics like Trigonometry. I have developed and written entire courses which were integrated with general physics. My greatest success is with students that need that extra help organizing all the notes for greater comprehension.
