About Terra


Bio

I am an instructor at St Edward's University, where I've been teaching for 3 years. Prior to that, I have 4 years of experience teaching and tutoring K-12 and college level mathematics and general education. With my 7 years total, I've got a lot of tips and tricks that could benefit any student, and I'm always looking for new ideas.

Outside of mathematics, I really enjoy language, science, and history. Each one brings its own interesting things to life, so I love to study them when I am not...

I am an instructor at St Edward's University, where I've been teaching for 3 years. Prior to that, I have 4 years of experience teaching and tutoring K-12 and college level mathematics and general education. With my 7 years total, I've got a lot of tips and tricks that could benefit any student, and I'm always looking for new ideas.

Outside of mathematics, I really enjoy language, science, and history. Each one brings its own interesting things to life, so I love to study them when I am not working on mathematics. Because of having spent so much time exploring these areas, I have a passion for them.

Both my graduate and undergraduate degrees are in mathematics, and I continue to push myself to learn new things. Despite this "over qualified" level of achievement, I enjoy going back to the simpler things because they are the building blocks for so many areas of mathematics. In re-exploring these areas, I often discover new and interesting ways to relate the information to other areas of life.

My undergraduate minor was in physics, so I have studied it from a basic level up to introductory quantum theory. As physics is a heavily mathematical subject, my understanding of mathematics lends itself well to both understanding and explaining the field.

I have been programming computers since I was around eight years old, starting with IBM's QuickBasic language. In high school, I began working in C++ and Java and have worked with both off and on since then. I have written many programs, including simple console games as well as a political mapping program for the state of Texas, so I have been required to learn a lot of the quirks of several languages.

I would love to help anyone and everyone who wants or needs to learn. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me so we can start working together.

Very Patient

I was really struggling with some math concepts. Terra was very patient and made sure I understood the material. Repeated problems, and broke things down into smaller concepts. Great teacher!

Gabi, 1 lesson with Terra

Excellent tutor

Terra helped my daughter under the concepts of Calculus. She is gaining confidence to perform better on tests. She even taught her a couple of tips. She is patient and does not make you feel inferior for not knowing something.

First meeting was an A+

This was just my sons first time meeting with Terra but he loved working with her! We will be signing up to meet with her weekly. For the remainder of the year and recommending her to friends.

Knowledgeable and brilliant

Terra was an incredible tutor. She is brilliant and explains math concepts in ways that allow you to understand what you are doing and WHY you are doing it. Highly recommend!

Michelle, 25 lessons with Terra

Knowledgeable and nice tutor

Terra was patient and helped me understand some calculus basics so I could apply them to more difficult situations. I thoroughly enjoyed her step by step style and found it to be very helpful in my overall understanding of the material.

Physics

We went of friction force and collision. She is super kind and knowledgeable. I’m definitely not a math major but she simplifies it as much as possible to help me understand. Definitely would book her again!!

Patient, Kind and Knowledgeable

This was our 3rd lesson with Terra and she is amazingly kind and helps my daughter understand outside the scope of a large classroom. This is imperative for my daughter and math, one on one tutoring. Terra is a perfect match for understanding different learning styles and issues, and solving them in a succinct manner. We are blessed to have found her.
