I have extensive experience teaching various levels of math. I did double undergraduate majors in Mathematics and Secondary Education. I then completed my masters degree in Math Education (Masters of Arts in Teaching). I taught high school full time for 10 years while teaching part time at a community college. Five years ago, I began teaching full time at the community college level and am now head of developmental and technical math. I have tutored for almost 20 years.
I have taught and tutored 7th grade general math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, College Algebra, Business Calculus, Survey of Calculus, Calculus I, and AP Calculus (both AB and BC). I have recently created and taught new math courses for technical students and for Allied Health students. Those courses are doing very well and have high success rates.
I love working with students and love working in tutoring situations. I am able to understand how a student is thinking and then build upon strengths and understanding in order to help students move forward. My favorite math to tutor is Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, College Algebra, and Calculus.

If a student gives me 1 - 24 hours notice, half the cost of the lesson will be charged. If there is less than one hour notice, the full amount of the schedule lesson will be charged.
My daughter met with Stephanie for 2-2.5 hours a week for seven weeks. They especially worked on the math portion of the ACT.
My daughter said that Stephanie was good at coming up with alternate ways to explain things when her first (or second) method didn't work. Stephanie was also very open about her own academic struggles which seemed to encourage my daughter to keep working hard and gave her confidence. She pushed my daughter to set high goals and then helped her get there.
Although I invested $850 in this one-on-one tutoring over 7 weeks, it will easily pay for itself in lower college costs. My daughter's increase on the math part of the ACT was FOUR POINTS, which took her out of the remedial math requirement for college courses AND put her into an automatic scholarship tier (for some schools -- every school varies).
She helped my daughter through all of her homework and got her ready for her test and quiz. Her grades have come up dramatically since seeing her. She is always thorough and will stay past the hour allotment if the session isn't complete.
Stephanie is great!! She has helped my daughter so much. She is able to explain things so it's easy to understand
My son said Stephanie showed him an easier way to figure out the work he was doing. We will be using her again.
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.
I taught juniors and seniors in high school for 10 years. I helped teach ACT math training sessions and specifically included problems in my courses that would help my students on the ACT. I was site coordinator for administering the ACT for 3 years.
I taught Algebra 1 in high schools for 10 years. I have extensive tutoring experience in Algebra 1 for 15+ years. I am currently in charge of a course at a community college that is roughly equivalent to Algebra I.
I taught Algebra II and Honors Algebra II in high schools for 7 years.
I taught Calculus I for dual credit to high school seniors for 6 years. I also taught AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC. My students did well and were very prepared to go on to further math courses.
I taught Precalculus at both the community college level as an adjunct professor - and for dual credit for high school juniors and seniors. I taught this class consistently for 8 years.
I have played the violin for over 30 years. I was accepted in to the Kansas All-State Honors Orchestra for each of the three years I was eligible to audition and received "I" ratings (top rating) at every competition throughout high school. I received a violin performance scholarship to attend college and started college with a double major in music and math. I played in a community orchestra while finishing my masters in math education. I played in semi-professional orchestras for 10 years following graduate school. I have taught violin lessons for 6 years in Kansas City before moving to the Memphis area. I learned in the Suzuki method and prefer teaching in this method also for small children - but I read music well and have also taught lessons for students who just wanted to play better in their school orchestras.
