“**A tutor your child will love!**”

I LOVE bringing science to life (over six years of experience doing so)! My tutoring career began at the Rinella Learning Center at Miami University working with fellow college students taking chemistry. I have also worked for Tutor.com and Varsity Tutors, both excellent experiences that helped me fine-tune my teaching methods.

Need a kind, understanding, and patient tutor for your child? Vonnie is making a huge difference in my daughter's progress in Algebra. What I love is the fact hat Vonnie listens to what our needs are as a family. She is flexible and adjusts curriculum, and meets students right where they are. I no longer see frustration as my daughter works through her problems! Vonnie is a joy and we just love her!!!

Test Preparation:

ISEE
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 am a math person and have excelled in any course that is math related. I have tutored up to college level algebra II at Miami University, and I have the understanding and insight of mathematics to help any student succeed in algebra I!

Gain a solid foundation for all future math courses by mastering order of operations.

Master topics such as:

expressing variables

adding/subtracting integers

adding/subtracting rational numbers

multiply/dividing rational numbers

solving equations

solving inequalities

linear equations

graphing

polynomials

data analysis

radicals

factoring

I have three years of chemistry tutoring at the college level. Chemistry is presumed to be a very difficult subject for most, but most people cannot fully understand this subject by reading a text book or listening to a lecture. It is a very literal subject best explained using visual aids, examples, and real life scenarios.

Master topics such as:

matter

stoichiometry

enthalpy

balancing equations

oxidation numbers

gas laws

kinetics

acid/base reactions

rate of reaction

naming compounds

forming products

nuclear chemistry

Mastering basic math principles at the elementary level is crucial for success in all future math courses. Struggling in math is not uncommon for elementary students, but with a little bit of patience, explanation, and practice, math will no longer be a source of anxiety and disappointment.

Believe it or not, but I can make math fun for your little one!

Master life skills such as:

telling time

counting coins

measurements

English and metric systems

Master topics such as:

addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in whole numbers, fractions, and decimals

multiplication tables

number patterns and mathematical trends

factorization

Science can be so much fun in elementary school because students learn more about how their world works. A lot of students need to feel a connection with science in order to be motivated to succeed, and it is my job to find that connection!

Master topics such as:

the basics of matter (atoms and molecules)

basic anatomy and systems in the body

ecology and the environment

animals, habitats, and ecosystems

laboratory practices

the scientific method

introductory biology

As a tutor, it is my job to teach students HOW to understand geometry. Success in geometry is all about developing a literal thought process, not just memorizing theorems, laws, and rules.

Master topics such as:

linear expressions

angles

parallelograms

triangles

polygons

congruence

parameter and surface area for 2D shapes

parameter, surface area, and volume for 3D shapes

theorems and laws

Understanding how to correctly use grammar is key in becoming a good writer. Grammar is one of those subjects that over the course of a lifetime will never go away, and fortunately, learning correct grammar is just like learning how to ride a bike. Once you figure it out, you never forget!

Master topics such as:

sentence structure

diagramming

clauses and phrases

verb conjugations

correct case of pronouns

run-on sentences

subordinate and coordinate conjunctions

punctuation

capitalization

abbreviations

I tutored for the ISEE when I worked for Varsity Tutors. I helped students review and practice strategies for the 5 sections on the ISEE.

Verbal Section

-Vocabulary strategies: memorizing prefixes and roots, applying prefixes and roots to the definition, labeling words as positive/negative, ruling out synonyms, using own context

-Sentence Completion: matching positive/negative, using context clues, applying process of elimination

Mathematics Section

-practice basic math skills such as multiplication tables, long-division, trends in numbers, and shortcuts to calculating

-review fundamentals of algebra, geometry, and reading graphs

-breaking down word problems

Quantitative Section

-review rules for eliminating certain answer choices

-practice making column A look like column B

-incorporating the importance of negative numbers and the concepts of greater than or less than

Reading Section

-review the 5 types of reading questions

-practice paying attention to what is stated in the passage

-focus on context clues to find what the author is inferring

Writing Section

-practice setting up an outline for intro, body, conclusion essay

-go over the fundamentals for writing a persuasive essay as well as an essay in response to an open-ended question

-practice using metaphors and imagery to be descriptive as well as spark the reader's interest

Taking the time to master prealgebra will set your child up for succeeding in any future math course. It is so important that students take the time to understand and master prealgebra because these basic principles are applied all the way through high school and beyond. Confidence in this subject area is very important!

Master topics such as:

order of operations

calculating exponents

writing algebraic expressions

word problems

distribution

graphing

I majored in zoology at Miami University because I love learning about animals and uncovering all aspects of life. My senior capstone was in animal behavior, and I have taken courses such as invertebrate zoology, environmental ecology, cell biology, and primate biology and behavior. I love sharing my interest and passion for the beautiful and puzzling animal kingdom!
