About Glenda

I have been teaching and tutoring for more than a decade, and I have a real talent for explaining things in simple, concrete terms.

Math is my teaching specialty, but as my original college major was creative writing and I have published on my own and proofread for a variety of other writers, I am very comfortable working with all sorts of language skills. My verbal and language scores on standardized tests exceed even my exceptional math scores. As I have found that vocabulary and reading comprehension are essential to math learning, it is important to me that I can combine the two sides of my background for the benefit of the student.

I believe in starting at a student's comfort level and working forward by small steps, but when we are forced to push ahead, we can spend some time on currently assigned material and some time on filling in the skill gaps that are holding students back. This combination can be especially useful for students who feel themselves to be falling behind. Playing catch-up is hard, but there are ways to accomplish it.

I have a B. S. in mathematics, an M. S. in operations research, another 30 graduate hours past the M. S., and a teaching certificate for secondary mathematics. I am a former regional coordinator for the Women And Mathematics lecture program in the late 70s.

Approved subjects

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.

Linear Algebra

I have studied and taught linear algebra from time to time over many years. I recently refreshed my knowledge of the subject by taking a graduate course in linear algebra. I earned a grade of A in this class. I have a B. S. in mathematics, an M. S. in operations research, another 30 graduate hours past the M. S., and a teaching certificate for secondary mathematics.

Logic

I have a B. S. in mathematics and a teaching certificate for secondary mathematics. I had no difficulty in making A's in all of my logic courses as an undergraduate. I taught logic for a few years at the University of Phoenix. with no difficulty. I have recently been tutoring a friend in the subject.
