About Allyssa

Hello Students and/or Parents!

My name is Allyssa and I am a 28-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.
I work at TWU as an Adjunct Instructor teaching several sections of Developmental Math, Introductory Statistics, and College Algebra. For the past four semesters I have been a part of the SIT (Supplemental Instruction and Tutoring) Program, and I also serve as the course coordinator for the developmental math courses. 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. I strive to help students connect the abstract math concepts with real world applications in order to aid in a deeper understanding of the material. My goal is to have students LEARN the material instead of just retaining 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 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.

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.
