Hello :-) I specialize in mathematics: high school and introductory & intermediate college level: Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus (high school; I and II; AP AB, and AP BC), Multivariable Calculus (i.e. Calculus 3), Ordinary Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I received the Outstanding Service Award as Supplemental Instructor at the University of North Texas in 2007, I won the military’s “Who’s Your Favorite” contest in 2013 with another tutoring...
Hello :-) I specialize in mathematics: high school and introductory & intermediate college level: Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus (high school; I and II; AP AB, and AP BC), Multivariable Calculus (i.e. Calculus 3), Ordinary Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I received the Outstanding Service Award as Supplemental Instructor at the University of North Texas in 2007, I won the military’s “Who’s Your Favorite” contest in 2013 with another tutoring service, and as of September 2017 have a 99.5% student approval rating with another organization.
I know all the ins and outs of math problems. I love working with people and knowing that I’ve helped someone achieve real understanding of a subject. Oftentimes, students might struggle with an entire subject because they are missing prerequisite information on only a handful of topics, or even on only one concept; I can help you identity what’s causing the problem and how to achieve mastery of that topic as easily and as efficiently as possible. I’ll break down any math topic, problem, or solution method into its component parts, explain and describe how each part works, and help you work through examples and guide you step-by-step through the concepts and processes so that at the end of the lesson, you not only have the work completed, but have a solid understanding of the concepts and how to solve problems of this type in the future.
I tutor exclusively online, and my schedule varies from week to week. I will typically respond to messages during the same business day, usually within a few hours, and I require 20-hours’ notice if you decide to cancel a lesson. Feel free to message me any time if you have any further questions or if you would like to schedule an online lesson.
My cancellation policy: Any lesson canceled 20 or more hours before the scheduled start time will not be charged a cancellation fee. Any lesson cancelled within 20 hours of the scheduled start time, or any lesson in which the student does not arrive in the
Super patient and comprehensive lesson
Fairly thorough review of multivariable calculus. In-depth but, regardless, very understandable. She is very familiar with higher-level computational math (calculus 3, in this case). Guides you through different methods of computation which is very helpful as someone who doesn't always resonate with certain approaches to mathematics.Sophie, 2 lessons with Promise
The student is happy with her lessons with Promise
Promise is a very very good teacher. She knows AP calculus the student is seeking help with inside out. It has been a good engagement for the student. Her help is quite appreciated.Sajal, 2 lessons with Promise
Very Helpful, knows her stuff!
My son had his first session this evening with Promise and when it was over the first thing he said to me was, “I know what I’m doing now!” Algebra hasn’t been easy with online learning and the one-on-one time seems to be just what he’ll need to be successful. Promise got right down to business and explained things to him in a way that was easy for him to understand. We will be scheduling future sessions!Allison, 1 lesson with Promise
Smart and helpful
Promise has been excellent at helping me to understand those few AP calculus items I've had trouble with. She is a great AP calculus tutor. I really like that she can quickly get me up to speed and cover numerous topics in a single session.Brian, 3 lessons with Promise
Knowledgeable and Eager to help
Flexible and very responsive. I contacted her late but she still made time to teach on Thanksgiving weekend. Taught my son new techniques and helped him approach complex problems.Jhothi, 1 lesson with Promise
Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor
Promise help my 9th grade daughter with Pre Ap Geometry. After her lesson my daughter felt more confident in her understanding of triangles. We will definitely schedule more lessons with Promise.Valerie, 2 lessons with Promise
Promise is very patient and polite.
Promise is working on going back to the beginning with Kristen to establish a better understanding of Algebra. Then we will work on going forward to the current lesson plans.Edward, 2 lessons with Promise
Promise was very good with my teen son and assisted him with algebra. She was thorough and patient as well as very knowledgeable. Thank you so much, we'll be back:)Courtney, 1 lesson with Promise
Patient and knowledgeable
She's very down to earth and approachable when you ask questions or make statements in general. Promise is straightforward and offered lots of details in her explanations.Russell, 7 lessons with Promise
Excellent Tutor - Knowledgeable, Responsive and Effective
Promise was great with my HS daughter and taught her induction. My daughter loved her style, her thoroughness and her mastery of the subject. She said she is the best tutor she has had thus far out to the 4- 5 tutors she tried. If Promise can use a tablet to write/draw the work rather than type, it would make the experience even more superb. There is a little lag where the student can't see the typed cell so writing on a board could alleviate that small glitch. Overall, Promise was SUPERB!!Teena, 6 lessons with Promise
