About Victoria

I am exploring tutoring full-time after two years of teaching 6-9 grade mathematics and over 20 years of STEM focused professional work. I thoroughly enjoy the rewards of 1-to-1 or small group tutoring of middle, high school, home school and college students. I am an Air Force veteran through ROTC, and earned my BA in Mathematics from The Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from University of Delaware. Wyzant has a flexible online and in-person platform that lets me help students improve performance and confidence in humanities, arts, social science and sciences.

I taught 7th and 8th grade accelerated mathematics at St. Mark Catholic School in Wilmington, NC before returning to Pats and Sox country to be closer to family. I briefly worked for Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy as a Math Teacher before stepping into tutoring full-time. I have been a formal tutor of mathematics and recently substitute taught Algebra 2/Geometry, pre-Calculus and Senior Analysis at Malden Catholic High School in Malden, MA. I mainly tutor 5th - 12th grade on-level math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and intro College/Business. I am open to support students in other math, applied math and science courses. My instructional experience is primarily with college-bound students in College Access and University Survival & Study Skills Efficiency. So, I can offer very meaningful studying and test preparation techniques for students challenged with course performance.

While employed with Utah State University I worked with middle school students with Expanding Your Horizons in Math & Science learning workshops. I wrote my master's thesis at University of Delaware on Mathematics Achievement of Underrepresented Ethnic & Gender Groups in Secondary Education: Implications on College Acceptance Patterns in Delaware. Combined with my track record of serving domestic and international (F-1 VISA) student populations diverse in age, gender, race and ethnicity, I am confident that I can bring relevancy to the subjects I tutor in a manner that engages and motivates.

The language of mathematics for many students can be daunting at times. Humanities, Arts, Social Science and Science courses have their "language" and can bring complexities of interdisciplinary thought. "What excites me most about the opportunity to tutor students is the challenge of helping them develop their analytical skills and enjoy the disciplines. In addition, I offer a wealth of experience in other subjects including French (fluent), Latin, chemistry, public relations/marketing, career/resume development, hotel property management and public speaking/voice projection. Contact me immediately to experience the difference and succeed academically faster. My resume, credentials, background check and references are available.

To your full-spectrum academic success,

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.

Algebra 1

I teach Algebra I and work very well with deconstructing the concepts that challenge Algebra I students the most. My students have a 100% pass rate on the EOC Math I exam.

Algebra 2

I am an accelerated mathematics teacher at a private middle school and have taught an advanced Algebra I to 8th graders for two years. This includes in depth verbal, graphic, tabular and equation understanding of linear, quadratic and exponential functions. I cover a number of Algebra II topics that go beyond the NC Math I EOC Test. I have good success in helping students differentiate between the real number system properties and the complex. Inequalities, exponents, matrices and logarithms are areas students can stumble on and I help them navigate these by helping them see the "big" picture, focusing on problem deconstruction/proper "set up" and crafting simple formula sheets. I substitute taught Algebra II and Pre-Calculus at Malden Catholic High School in Malden, MA.

Bible Studies

I have Confraternity of Christian Doctrine Course Completion Certifications (CCD) from the Archdiocese of Raleigh, NC. I taught 7th grade Religion for two years at St. Mark Catholic School, Wilmington, NC and was offered a contract to teach Religion prior to having to relocate back to New England. References from the school Principal and Director of Religious Education are available.

I have in-depth Old and New Testament memorized scriptural knowledge spanning 20 years. This includes coursework and teaching in Vacation Bible School programs through Living Hope Christian Church, Williston Vermont (formerly Maranatha Christian Church) and Essex Alliance Church, Essex Junction, VT. I have fluency with both Protestant and Catholic religious formation and worship rituals. I have been a parish cantor for over two decades applying liturgical knowledge to the celebration of the mass.

English

Distinguished in helping international (F-1 Visa), first-generation college, multicultural and continuing education students with increasing writing scores in courses and standardized tests.

I possess a Master's in Liberal Studies from the University of Delaware. which requires over 24 credits of humanities and social studies courses within extensive writing. I also was a Public Relations Coordinator for Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream Corporate Headquarters. This position required writing copy for all media outlets and internal publications. I have worked in Admissions/Enrollment for select private colleges for over 6 years and read over 5,000 college application essays. I later performed and continue to offer independent consultant work to help college-bound students with this process. Lastly, I substitute taught 10th-12th grade English--regular and honors-- at Woburn Memorial Public High School in Woburn, MA.

Geometry

I teach accelerated mathematics in a private middle school which covers content from 7th-10th grade. This includes 1-,2- and 3-D geometry basics, extensive instruction in angle/line/polygon construction, proving lines parallel and perpendicular, ratios, proportions and similarities, coordinate geometry, perimeter/area/surface area and volume with 2-dimensional polygons and 3-dimensional solids. I also do enrichment with formal proofs (SAS, ASA, HL, etc.), Pythagorean Theorem, Heron's Formula and Trigonometry (Sohcahtoa) using TI-84s.

Prealgebra

I am an accelerated mathematics teacher at a private middle school and have taught Pre-Algebra to 7th graders for two years. I deliver a hybrid course that captures all required NC standards for 7th grade EOG test completion, Diocese of Raleigh standards for 8th grade on-level and prerequisite concepts for NC Math I that students take as 8th graders. Currently maintain 100% Math I EOC pass rate for my 8th graders. References available upon request.

Voice (Music)

I am a mezzo-soprano, with professional voice training and sand with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus from 1998-2001 under the direction of Robert DeCormier. I have cantored in the Catholic tradition for over 20 years including wedding and funeral masses. Tutoring voice to improve projection and pronunciation of foreign languages (Latin, French and German) is where I would be of greatest service.

Great with explaining math — My daughter found Victoria's tutoring very helpful. Increased her grade in algebra/geometry a whole level. My daughter is not a math fan to say the least but Victoria explained it and had her understand concepts in a way she could relate to! No doubt excellent tutor , kind and very reliable. We will continue using Victoria. I can't say enough how well she worked with my teen! ...
