About Allyssa

Hello Students and/or Parents!

My name is Allyssa and I am a 27-year-old recent graduate of TWU. I have just finished a Master's Degree in Mathematics with an emphasis in Statistics and I also have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, with a split minor in Psychology and Philosophy. I have quite a bit of experience as a tutor, and hope to pursue a career as a Professor after obtaining a Ph.D.
At TWU I work as an Adjunct Instructor, where I have am teaching and have taught several sections of Developmental Math, Introductory Statistics, College Algebra, and for the past two semesters I have been a part of the SIT (Supplemental Instruction and Tutoring) Program. I have also worked as a tutor in the TWU Math and Computer Science Center for many years, as well as having attended multiple training sessions through Avid Tutoring.
My teaching/tutoring philosophy is based on the concept of teaching the topic as opposed to just helping to get the right answer. My goal is to have students learn the material, and not just retain it long enough to take the test. I am a very patient person, and enjoy finding little tricks and tips to help my students learn.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your math troubles!

Thanks,
Allyssa

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.

Logic

Along with my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, I also minored in Philosophy. Both subjects required multiple classes in which either focused on logic, or dealt with it as part of the curriculum. I feel very capable in my abilities and understanding of logic in a the world of Mathematics and Philosophy, and would even go as far to say that Symbolic Logic was my favorite class of my undergraduate studies.
