Approved subjects are in bold.

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 took this class originally in 8th grade, Mr. Ho's class at Travis. In the end of that year, I was one of the only students that year to receive a high A for the class. He taught us a couple of ways to factor/distribute including FOIL and box methods. Since then, I have been helping my peers take, retake, and remember the subject.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is almost identical to the College Algebra subject that is required to be taken by almost all UTA students, in which, I tutor those that need the extra assistance whether it be for test prep or enrichment. I have made a sheet that has many of the formulas and processes found in this course, including many of the most common parent functions.

Calculus

I have taken and tutored Cal I-III at UTA.

Clarinet

I knew when I saw my brother play clarinet when I was 2 that I wanted to do that. I started out playing his old recorder in elementary school and when I started middle school I learned to play clarinet. I was also interested in playing all instruments but the Bb clarinet was the only one I played in middle school band. I made All City Band and also earned some awards at the Solo and Ensemble competition. When I went to high school I continued on with Bb clarinet but expanded to Eb clarinet and alto sax, still wanting to learn more instruments and music, I played in Marching Band, Jazz Band, All City Band, was in my high school’s top stage band, Wind Symphony, all 4 years, and earned more awards. When I was a senior in high school I decided to try out for Lone Star Youth Orchestra that only allowed 2 or 3 clarinets in their band every year and made that band, there were only 2 of us and I really loved being in that band. All during my school years, even in elementary, I have helped other students with their school work, with math and music being my favorites. I decided that I want to keep music in my life and still want to learn more so that is why I am a music education major at UTA and probably will minor in math.

I have over 8 years experience in Bb clarinet and would be happy to give you a lesson!

General Music

I have been studying music all my life, since before kindergarten to college. I always loved music class and musicals. When I got to middle school I was in band and theater, then in high school and college I was in marching band, wind band, jazz band, and theater -- performing on stage and on the field. In college, I am majoring in Music Education and have taken classes for all instruments, theory, sight singing/ear training, choir, Jazz Techniques, Instrumental Methods, Early Childhood Music, Strategies & Assessment, Digital Music Technology, Marching Band Techniques, Elementary Music, Orchestration, Instrumental Conducting, Music History, Music Pedagogy, private lessons, and more. I have given clarinet lessons and have helped with music classes in all grade levels for field experience.

Trigonometry

The teacher for the trig class I took at UTA was the person who suggested that I started tutoring in the first place. Although I would help my peers in class here and there previously, she was the first person to directly say to me to "become a tutor." It wasn't until then that I saw it possible to become both a math and music teacher eventually. For trigonometry, I have made a 3 page formula sheet with all kinds of important info on it including the Pythagorean Theorem, half angle formulas, and the Unit Circle. During the tutoring, we look at homework problems, go over tests, and encourage them to make up their own problems as well.
