Hello, I’m Valerie. I have a Bachelor in Exercise Science and Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Texas Woman’s University.

I have two passions in life. Physical therapy and algebra. I work full-time as a physical therapist but I also have a deep love for math.

I over 7 years experience tutoring college algebra, remedial math courses, high school algebra for the University of Texas at Brownsville, Texas State Technical College at Harlingen, Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, and Wyzant.

I love working one-on-one with students and watching them succeed in school. I have had great outcomes from all my students and hope you will give me the opportunity to help you or your child.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My 15-year-old son had a great first lesson to review some concepts in Algebra 2 with Valerie. My son felt that she was very knowledgeable and made the concepts easier to understand. Valerie was on time and they got right to work on his homework. He has another lesson booked.

Professional and confident

I'm completely pleased with Valerie's work with my daughter. Anyone can "help," but teaching and tutoring require some elements of classroom structure, too. Valerie was on time - on-time to start and on-time to finish. There was very little "wasted" time - very little idle chit-chat or distractions. Valerie didn't just do the work and allow my daughter to watch; she asked my daughter to show past homework and do problems in real-time. Instead of waiting until mistakes were made, Valerie insisted on confirming the accuracy of each step. This process took extra time the first problem or two, but it caught mistakes as they were made and enable her to illustrate and demonstrate the correct approach/concept in solving the problem. Within a few problems, my daughter was catching her own mistakes and correcting them. Valerie validated and encouraged where possible; my daughter said she felt better and actually was *confident* she now understood the concepts she had struggled with. Valerie certainly knows her subject matter; the difference-maker for her is she seems to understand how to get her students across barriers or obstacles in understanding. She simplifies, explores and challenges, then validates, encourages. Those are solid fundamental mentoring skills at every level. After the session, my daughter was excited about getting home and solving the rest of her homework because she was confident she understood what she was doing. Valerie helped her understand confusing concepts...my daughter was able to solve the problems with ease after that... THAT is the sign of a good tutor.

Excellent!!

Valerie relates to my son like a friend & instructs him like a teacher. He is doing so much better with his grades & confidence in giving tests. My biggest concern was getting a tutor to give practice problems after their session is done to further his recent knowledge. Valerie gives him enough practice. She even agrees to help him after she has left our house to correct his practice problems.

Very helpful and knowledgable

Valerie helped me prepare for an upcoming test and reviewed several things like slope intercept, inequalities, and interval notation that would help me get a better grade.

Super Nice, dedicated and concerned

My daughter worked with her on function in Algebra. Discuss range and domain, graph decrease and increase . Valerie increase my daughter's confidence and understanding in math. She is very dedicated and concerned tutor. She cancelled last Sunday's session (last day of Thanksgiving break) because she was out of town. But upon my request she rescheduled and made it late at Sundays Evening. I really appreciate her and I have 100% recommendation for her.

Knowledgeable and easy to work with

Valerie helped my son with some algebra 2 basics he wasn't grasping. He said she was easy to talk to and explained the material so that he could understand it
