“**Great tutor! Uses examples that make sense!**”

My name is Katrina and I received my mathematics degree from the University of North Texas in May 2015. While at the university, I took classes that allowed me to student teach elementary and middle school classes. I also had the opportunity to tutor college students individually

Background Check:
Passed

Katrina is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Katrina to get started.

We mostly discussed the underlying concepts of basic calculus methods and walked through examples. I learn mostly from going over examples and Katrina had several examples that were easy to understand and clearly explained.

It also really helped that she came prepared with paper, pencils and a graphing calculator. I remembered my calculator and computer but didn't bring pencils and paper. Working out examples by hand on paper was much easier than typing them out like I normally do.

Katrina was also prompt, which was great because my Saturdays are really busy. She did a nice job of putting me at ease even though I just met her. She didn't make me feel stupid when asking a lot of basic questions. Overall, I would definitely recommend Katrina. I think I'm going to schedule a few follow-up lessons.

English, Grammar, Reading, 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.

At Sylvan Learning Center, I tutor high school students weekly to prepare for the ACT. There are several different subjects involved in the math portion of the exam. The content breakdown for ACT math is Pre-Algebra (20-25%), Elementary Algebra (15-20%), Intermediate Algebra (15-20%), Coordinate Geometry (15-20%), Plane Geometry (20-25%), and Trigonometry (5-10%), each of which I have mastered while obtaining my degree in mathematics.

I am qualified to tutor this subject because while earning my math degree from UNT, Algebra I content is used throughout all math courses. In addition, I tutor Algebra I daily at Sylvan learning center. I have studied this topic for over 4 years and continually use it throughout my work.

Algebra II is my my favorite math subject. I did well in this class in high school and continued to use Algebra II throughout my classes at UNT. I feel quite comfortable explaining this material to others.

It is important for students to have a clear understanding of elementary math as it is the foundation for future math courses. I have had much teaching experience with this subject at Sylvan learning center. This is also a great time to use math manipulatives to explain this topic.

At UNT, I was a teaching assistant for prealgebra and statistics. As a teaching assistant, I led classes twice a week and worked one on one with students to ensure they had a clear understanding of the content. Lastly, I also tutored a 7th grader for about a year in this subject and watch his grades steadily rise.

Precalculus was my first math class I took at UNT. After taking this class, I knew I wanted to major in mathematics. My confidence level increased and I found myself helping other students with their homework.

At Sylvan, I currently tutor students studying for the SAT. I particularly enjoy tutoring students in this subject because it is helping them prepare for college. In addition, I am qualified to teach this as I have an understanding of all the math topics involved in the SAT.

After taking a few statistics classes at UNT, I was a supplemental instruction leader for an introductory statistics class. As a supplemental leader, I held study groups for students a few times a week and completed test reviews as needed. Also, my focus was in statistics at UNT.
