So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grade math, Algebra I, Pre-AP Algebra I, Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry, Algebra...

Very Helpful & Knowledgeable
Our son is a college student and is having some struggles with mathematics. He had yet to try a tutor and we found Judy on Wyzant. He found her to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He will definitely be using her again in the future.Darrell, 1 lesson with Judy
Patient and Amazing!
Judy explained things to me in terms that made sense--breaking things down so I could really absorb them. She took the time needed to explain things and answer questions that I had. And, she even sent follow-up materials to help supplement our session. Thank you.McKenzie, 8 lessons with Judy
Excellent Math Tutor
Judy was an excellent math and precalculus tutor. She takes the time evaluate all weak areas and tailors the sessions to the students needs. Her approach makes sure that the student can independently work problems. She is always punctual and professional.Harold, 62 lessons with Judy
Knowledgeable and thorough teacher
Judy went above and beyond to teach me more efficient methods for solving problems. She also helped me understand several topics much better. I plan to use her again for all my future Algebra II work.Dana, 7 lessons with Judy
Patient and knowledgeable teacher
Judy helped explain concepts that were stumping my son - but that was only after navigating a series of wacky technical issues (all on our side) and then getting into the heart of the matter. He left the lesson feeling much better on the concept and how to approach it, and even better: ready to tackle his work.Carthy, 14 lessons with Judy
Best Tutor I've Had
Judy helped me with radical expressions and dimensional analysis for my Pre-AP Algebra II class. Usually, after an hour of tutoring, I can not take any more. Judy created very short breaks by talking off topic about the birds outside or the piano something for a minute or two. It was obvious she had been teaching for 30-years. She kept me engaged for two-hours and I learned so much. I wish she was my regular teacher. Thank you Judy!Mark, 57 lessons with Judy
Judy is THE BEST tutor ever!
"Judy is THE BEST tutor I've ever had!" exclaims my daughter, Jo, each and every time I pick her up from a tutoring session with Judy. Judy is truly gifted at working her magic with kids and math. Judy has a way of explaining things in a way where she is actually learning the material and not just memorizing it. Thank you, Judy!!Shirley, 32 lessons with Judy
Judy is a very kind, enthusiastic and patient tutor. My son was very engaged while working with her and he really enjoyed his sessions. She is a skilled teacher and a real professional. Look no further if you want someone who will really help your student understand math.donna, 21 lessons with Judy
Experienced and knowledgeable tutor
Dr. Judy continues to diagnose and treat my child's math needs. She is both patient and thorough in her tutoring.Stuart, 64 lessons with Judy
Dr. Judy was very patient with my daughter as she helped her with pre-algebra. She was thorough & went carefully over her last exam to find out what my daughter needed to work on. We look forward to working with her more.Veronica, 1 lesson with Judy
