About Courtney

Mathematics has always been thought of as a scary subject, but I believe EVERYONE can learn mathematics. I have taught 6th-12th grade students, as well as tutored for the ACT, GRE, MAT, SAT, and other college level courses. I am currently teaching high school mathematics: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I double majored in mathematics and business administration with an emphasis in accounting in college. I have received my masters in education and am currently taking 9 hours of graduate math courses to get a total of 18 hours to teach adjunct courses.

When I do tutor, I like for my pupils to come ready with what they need help with and not just open the book and say I don't know what to do. It wastes time and money. If we need to start at the beginning, so be it but have a starting point. And then we can progress through and I can see exactly where the real issues are. I am very good at picking up where issues lie within 1 session of tutoring. I am willing to work 110% with any pupil that is willing to meet me halfway.

I put students to work quickly and like to work numerous problems. Repetition is the key to learning the methods in mathematics. And with the common core standards coming into the education system now, a deeper understanding of mathematics is coming. It will not just be crunching numbers to get an answer. Students will have to come up with the problems, model the problems, work the problems out, and teach the entire process to someone else.

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 1 for over 12 years. I have had tremendous success with the State Test-preparing my students to do well.

Geometry

Geometry is a fun topic. I have taught this subject for more than 5 years. I love relating it to the real world so you can see the reason of why this is important to understand.
