About Vanessa

I began teaching and tutoring math when I was in high school during the summer months as a job for the local adult center. After graduating high school, I then went on to get my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (2010), at the University of South Carolina. I continued tutoring college level math after college, while working as a Manufacturing Engineer for a manufacturing company.

Throughout my experiences as a tutor, I have worked with students one-on-one because every student develops on a different learning curve. This is why the tutoring process is so crucial. Working individually with a student can help them overcome some of the frustration and confusion that comes along with learning in a classroom setting. I have a great amount of patience and understanding to help each student develop his or her own learning style and guiding them through the problems at his or her own pace to ensure that they understands the material. Learning is a step by step process and I believe that by presenting multiple ways to approach a problem, every student can find a method that works for them.

I have knowledge of a wide range of mathematics, science and engineering. I have tutored students in Basic and College Level Math, Pre Algebra, Algebra, Algebra I & II, Trigonometry & Calculus, Business Math.

Every student should be allowed the resources and have opportunity to achieve their goals. I am here to help students who have had difficulty with math, and feel confident in abilities in math. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be compassionate, in which who will make a positive impact to each student.

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 2

Math is one of my strongest points and subjects. I have tutored privately in college algebra for 4 years. All of my students have done well in understanding concepts and problem solving skills in college algebra. It is important that students develop these skills before going on to the next level.

Knowledgeable; connects well with my daughter — Vanessa helped my daughter build a firmer grasp of an area which she was having difficulty grasping. A pop quiz on the subject by her high school teacher reflected her improved understanding. Key to this improvement has been Vanessa's ability to build a rapport with my daughter who is a bit on the shy side with adults. ...
