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.

Algebra 1

I am certified at the Secondary level for math in Texas and have taught and tutored at this level at Richland Community College for some 5 years. My educational background includes a Masters in Science Education which included a math minor. In addition, I have been consistently rated by students as "making math easy to understand" even for more difficult math concepts.

Calculus

I have a major in physics and a minor in math at Masters level. My strength is both in teaching and applications of math. I have had great success tutoring students at both the conceptual and application levels.

Physics

Have taught both AP and IB level physics at secondary level. Ten years experience and I hold a MS in physics from University of Texas at Dallas and also Texas certification in math and physics at Secondary level.

I am certified at the Secondary level for math in Texas and have taught and tutored at this level at a Community College for about five years. My educational background includes a Master's in Science Education which included a Math minor. I have also tutored Calculus, which is helpful in knowing what to stress or emphasize.

SAT Math

I'm math certified at secondary level in Texas and taught algebra to academy students while I was at Richardson CC teaching developmental math.

Trigonometry

I have tutored this subject as well as others that require knowledge of Trigonometry, which enables me to provide continuity in instruction should tutoring subsequently be required for classes like Precalculus.
