About Katrina

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 during my final year by working at the university's math lab. During this time, students would bring in their math coursework from classes that ranged from college algebra to calculus. In addition, I was also a teaching assistant and was responsible for leading an elementary statistics class.

During a tutoring session I would like to identify where a student struggles in a particular subject and help them so they can better understand the concept. Also, I would prefer to know what specific topic they are needing assistance with before meeting so I will be better prepared to help.

Please contact me if you are needing any assistance with your math courses or just want to learn more about a specific math subject.

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.

ACT Math

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.

Algebra 1

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 2

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.

Elementary Math

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.

Prealgebra

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

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.

SAT Math

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.

Statistics

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.

Great tutor! Uses examples that make sense!

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. Workin
