I have been a high school math teacher for a number of years and am a former youth minister. I enjoy helping students work through their fears of math to become successful! I have taught algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and pre-calculus (including trigonometry). I have also taught statistics at the college level. I know how frustrating math can be, and I look for the missing pieces in a student's knowledge to help them to gain a secure footing in their current math class.
I am willing to travel to your home or have your student come to mine for their tutoring session. I ask that the student have their textbook and/or notes available for me to use as a resource. It is also important that we have plenty of paper and sharpened pencils ready. I will bring my iPad with me to show how to access additional resources.

My daughter (a senior in high school) couldn't say enough good things about Ellen. She is very patient, thorough and made some Algebra concepts understandable for the first time. We will definitely call on her again for the second semester!
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.
I have eight years experience as a secondary math teacher.
I taught algebra 2 for four years in Irving ISD.
I have taught geometry in high school for several years and am currently a geometry tutor at a high school in HEB ISD.
