I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12). I have been a Level 5 teacher (highest effectiveness score as determined by State of Tennessee) consistently throughout my teaching career. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry at the high school level and 7th and 8th grade math at the middle school level. I currently work part-time for Knox County Schools as a Numeracy Coach assisting math teachers with curriculum and teaching strategies.

My goal with a student is to help them improve their ability to reason mathematically which in turn should improve any scores in math. I want students to have a passion for math! My favorite phrase from a student is "Oh, I get it!" I graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering so I know how important math is and how it can be used in the real world.

Having worked as an engineer prior to becoming a certified math teacher, I can show students how math is used in the real world. When one can see how math is used, it helps students better relate math concepts to their daily life. Math is a powerful tool used in almost every facet of life. With the TN Promise opportunity, students need to be successful in the core subject of math.

I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12) with 8 years experience. I have tutored after school each of these years. Tennessee teachers are ranked on a scale of 1-5 (5 is the highest) with respect to effectiveness. I have consistently been a Level 5 teacher for Algebra 2. I have been described by students as patient. I finished my Chemical Engineering degree (Tennessee Technological University, not on-line) in 36 months while working two part-time jobs. To do this, I had to apply incredible "study skills" and believe I can share with others these skills.

Knowledgeable and patient

LOVE LOVE LOVE Rose!!! My 15 yr old son (who I homeschool) has been struggling with math for years! I finally decided to take a chance and find a tutor for him. Rose had been such a blessing!!!

Awesome

She helped me with things that I didn't know how to do and help me understand them in ways that my mind works and I wish I would have known this before I took my previous test because I would have got a higher score guaranteed

amazing tutor

Rose helped me to pass the Praxis Core: mathematics with only 2 sessions of online tutoring. My score went from a 134 to a 160 and I needed a 150. She was great and so helpful. She went beyond just our sessions and made it a point to send me all sorts of helpful material to further prepare for my test. I highly recommend her.

Great Teacher

I made an "F" on my mid-term in Statistics and was on my way to failing until I met Rose. After being tutored by Rose in a matter of a couple of weeks I made my highest score of the semester on a Statistics quiz a "B"! With Rose I ended up making a "B+" on my final and I passed Statistics. I highly recommend Rose.

Prepared and Ready!

Rose was prepared and ready to go over the chapters I needed help with. I was able to send her copies of those chapters and she had examples to show me. She had also looked over a previous test and quiz I had taken and went over those with me on what I had missed. She is a good tutor.

Patient and easy to understand

Rose was very patient with me when teaching me statistics. Since I hadn't taken a math class in 10 years, I had forgotten basic rules of math and was already behind when I started this college course. Rose broke everything down into its basic parts to help me understand. I did not feel bad about asking questions with her. She is extremely patient and meets you where you are.
