I am a Texas Certified Secondary Teacher and a qualified Texas Community College Instructor. I am familiar with TI-84+ calculator and with on-line programs for homework submission.

I find that the students who benefit the most are those students with materials at hand and clear goals for their session(s). I expect a student to have notes and examples of the instructor's preferred methods, as applicable. I expect students to work problems during the time I work with them; that is essential for the student's retention. Proactive students have the best success.

Thank you for considering me as a tutor for your math course.

Geometry

As a student, Geometry was my favorite subject; the formal geometry with proofs especially. A sound geometry background will enhance the study of trigonometry. With trigonometric and algebraic proficiency, pre-calculus and higher courses flow much more smoothly.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I am a Texas State Certified Secondary Mathematics Instructor. Prealgebra in the middle and high school levels is an important background subject. Also for students coming into the community college algebra course, having taken algebra several years previously, developmental algebra courses must be taken to be approved to enroll in the college algebra. I have taught these courses for several years.
Precalculus

Precalculus

I hold a Master's Degree in mathematics, The precalculus mathematics course - at the high school and college levels - is a rigorous course. Understanding and performance are enhanced by proficiency in algebra and trigonometry. Often coaching and making the connection between the earlier courses and the precalculus course are useful to achieving success and understanding.

Excellent tutor! She is very knowledgeable, patient and very thorough.

We are working on College Algebra (Algebra 2). She explains how to resolve the problem but, also pauses to substantiate how we got the solution by going back a few steps if I need it. As an adult student that has been out of school for over 30yrs, this is much appreciated because there are some things that are not current in my mind.

Cassandra, 4 lessons with Anita

She is a great tutor she knows the subject very well and I will most likely ask for her help again.

She helped me review some aspects for my college algebra test I didn't feel like I would do well but with the help she gave me I feel more confident in my abilities.

Increasing His Confidence In 8th Grade Honors Algebra

My son is 8th grade Rowlett student who was struggling with Honor's Algebra. He likes Anita's teaching style and said he gets a lot out of the tutoring sessions! Thanks Anita for increasing his confidence in a subject that he considers boring and sometimes overwhelming!
