Bio

I have taught math for the past forty years. I have a love for teaching math to students and adults desiring to learn the concepts of math. I have taught college students and adults, high school students, middle school students, as well as individuals.

I have taught math for the past forty years. I have a love for teaching math to students and adults desiring to learn the concepts of math. I have taught college students and adults, high school students, middle school students, as well as individuals.

My experience has been with both private and public schools. I taught college math for twenty years at the University of Tennessee Chattanoga as an adjunct professor. I also taught upper math classes in the Hamilton County Schools as well as tutoring students with math deficiencies after school. I taught Algebra 2 at Girls Preparatory School and GED classes at Chattanooga State Community College.

Students have been able to comprehend concepts never grasped before due to methods I have used for their special learning abilities. I can usually have a person understanding concepts in less than a month. The reason I can do this is because I ask questions and listen to the response. I can then spot the trouble in their wrong way of thinking.

I guarantee success for anyone wishing to learn math. Once you understand the concepts then you can apply your knowledge to everyday math problems and life situations. By doing this you will excel in school and in your work place.

Let me show you how to not only like math, but to love math! I am a firm believer that math can be understood if you have a teacher that loves math and loves teaching math. If you are receptive to learning math or if you think you cannot learn math...give me a chance to prove you can and will learn math!

Study Skills

For the past 35 years I have been teaching and tutoring students in mathematics and science as well as GED, ACT and SAT tests. I have taught study skills to many unorganized students in middle school, high school and college. Where needed, I include organization skills along with how to study and where to study for the best results in learning. My experience has been with both private and public schools. I taught college math for twenty years at the University of Tennessee Chattanoga as an adjunct professor.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is essentially arithmetic with some of the numbers replaced by letters or variables. Initially, algebra referred to equation solving, but now it encompasses the language of algebra and the patterns of reasoning. The rules of algebra are basically the same as the rules for arithmetic.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

For Algebra 2, your knowledge of the following fundamental ideas is assumed. They are: Natural numbers, Whole numbers, Integers, Rational numbers, Irrational numbers, Real numbers, Rules for positive and negative numbers, Exponents and Logarithms, Grouping symbols, Order of operations, Scientific notation, and Absolute value.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have taught geometry in high school. I have tutored tutored students in geometry on the ACT and the SAT tests. Also, I have tutored GED students in geometry.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Before you can really understand algebra, you need to feel comfortable with basic mathematical operations and what is commonly called pre-algebra. Some of the essentials to get you ready for an easy transition in the world of algebra are as follows: properties of basic mathematical operations, multiplying and dividing using zero, powers and exponents, square roots and cube roots, approximating and simplifying square roots, signed numbers and fractions, decimals, percents and scientific notation.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I taught precalculus in the Hamilton County High Schools. I also taught college algebra at UTC for many years. Math is something I love and love to teach.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

The SAT is the most widely used standardized test for college admissions. The exam is created and administered by College Board. It covers three subject areas: critical reading, mathematics and writing. Students have 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete the exam. Each section is worth 800 points, so the highest possible score is 2400. The exam is offered seven times a year: January, March, May, June, October, November and December. The SAT is designed to measure critical thinking and problem solving skills that are essential for success in college.

The General Educational Development (GED) tests are a series of examinations designed to determine whether the person taking them has the literacy and computational skills equivalent to those of the upper two-thirds of the students currently graduating from high school in the United States. The tests measure broad concepts and general knowledge, not how well you remember details, precise definitions, or historical facts. Thus, the tests do not penalize persons lacking recent academic or classroom experience.

The ASVAB is the most widely used multiple- aptitude test battery in the world. It was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in the military occupations. Since its introduction in 1968, the ASVAB has been the subject of extensive research. Numerous validation studies indicate the ASVAB assesses academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations. The test gives students a good sense of their verbal, math, and science and technical skills compared to other students in the same grade.

Truly delightful!

Ms. Dottie was a truly delightful tutor. She was very patient and gave positive encouragement! She connected well with my students and was able to help them accomplish their goals.

Merrilee, 2 lessons with Dottie

Great Tutor

Miss Dottie is a wonderful and kind Math tutor. She tutored my 13 year old child in pre-algebra and algebraic slopes. After only one two-hour session, my child went from failing in her first semester with only one day before her final exam, to a passing 70!! I am very pleased with Miss Dottie and my child's progress. I know with subsequent sessions this grade will vastly improve. I recommend Miss Dottie for tutoring as she is kind and prompt and works with my child's Teacher to create a well laid plan for my child's success! Thank you Miss Dottie!

Tutor responded:

Lisa Ann, I didn't know that Isabel made a 70 for her final exam grade. I can not take all the credit for this. Isabel's teacher gave me concepts to teach Isabel and Isabel was diligent in learning and applying these learned concepts. I know she will surprise her teacher and herself by being the 'most improved student' in her class by the end of this school year!! Thanks for your kind feedback,

Thank you Ms Dottie!!!!

Ms Dottie, I would like to say thank you. Thank you for the patience and your time you had helping me obtain my GED. At my age I thought it would be impossible for me to understand algebra and geometry. Thank you for teaching me how to apply the formulas and algebra equation. Believe it or not Ms Dottie. I pass my GED test with and average score of 534. I'm enrolled now at Chattanooga State, in the career field of Industrial Electricity. With a attitude of (I CAN DO THIS) and you encouraging me. I succeeded in obtaining one of my goals. THANK YOU.

Antonio, 1 lesson with Dottie
Tutor responded:

Antonio, I'm so proud of you. I knew you could pass the GED, I just wasn't sure if you knew it!! Please keep me posted on your success at ChattState. I'm not sure what Industrial Electricity involves, but I'm sure mathematics will be very much in the picture!! Thank you for your very kind message.
