About Rona

I am a former high school mathematics teacher, having taught Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. Actually having classroom experience enhances my ability to recognize student errors and quickly move toward better comprehension. I have the capability, and it is my pleasure, to customize and write my own problem sets for each of my students. On many occasions, I provide my own additional note handouts to optimize mastery of the subject matter.

I have been tutoring Katy ISD students for 7 years and want to continue my 30 years of experience in educating and mentoring teens. Knowledgeable in both teaching and raising teenagers, I am patient and have a good working rapport with students and their parents. I am dedicated to the success of each individual and will always go the extra mile to teach and inspire my students to achieve their potential.

The skills I’ve acquired while teaching also enable me to better understand the dynamics of the student/teacher/parent relationship. I can use my expertise to not only help with improving math comprehension, but with anything else associated with math class.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have been teaching/tutoring Algebra for over 25 years. I use special techniques and "cute memorable sayings" to help students remember certain algebraic skills. I also point out possible mistakes during explanations to help avoid them while doing homework.

Algebra 2

I have been teaching/tutoring Algebra 2 for over 25 years. I use special techniques and "cute memorable sayings" to help students remember certain algebraic skills. I also point out possible mistakes during explanations to help avoid them while doing homework.

Geometry

Geometry has always been my favorite class to teach or tutor. It is a challenging subject, so I provide my own additional material to help conquer comprehension problems.

Precalculus

I have been tutoring precalculus for 4 years. As this course is challenging, seeing my students succeed proves extremely rewarding. Since curriculums are different, I plan each session according to the specific expectations of each individual school/teacher.

Trigonometry

I have been helping both high school and college students with Trigonometry for 4 years. I am very knowledgeable about graphing sinusoidal equations, verifying trigonometric identities and solving trig equations.

Wonderful tutor! — Rona did an excellent job this year tutoring my son, Connor. We are grateful for her knowledge of the subject and excellent teaching skills. My son was very apprehensive about going to a tutor but now sees the importance of getting help when you are struggling in school. Very happy with the WyzAnt system and will definitely refer the program to friends in need of a qualified tutor. ...
