Northern Illinois University (Math Education)
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.

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.
Thank you for your help with my daughter. She needed you to re-teach her right before a test and was a huge success. thank you!
Nathan has gone from begrudgingly going to lessons with Rona to asking me to set them up on certain days because he knows that she is going to be able to fill the gaps that he's not learning school! She has been excellent with him in the 11th grade and now his senior year!
I was doing really bad in pre-cal on all my quizzes, so I looked up a tutor and I'm glad I did. She went over each question I got wrong and even made up some of her own question's on the spot. I was much more prepared for my test than I would've been on my own. She's a really good tutor and goes step by step with you.
Rona was very helpful explaining proofs in geometry and also touching on some algebra concepts for my daughter. She made things simple to understand and apply.
My son really enjoyed his lesson and immediately felt more confident on the pre-calculus material. After 1 lesson, a 10 point improvement in his quiz grade.
I have spent a multitude of time researching for a pre - calculus tutor for my son. It took about 2 weeks to finally select and try one after reading many reviews. All tutors I researched wanted to implement a schedule around their specific needs. NOT MISS RONA. I tried Miss Rona and "hit the jackpot". On the 2nd 6 week grading period, my son got a low grade on his first major grade and an average grade on his second major grade. He did not understand all the content.
Miss Rona spent 1 hour with my son before his cumulative review and score a 78%...that is almost a B!
My son goes to Katy High School and she does the research for each individual high school and even looks up material used by the teacher. Incredible tutor!
I will say if you are looking for immediate, verifiable results regarding math subjects, please contact Miss Rona. She knows how to educate young people.
Rona is very knowledgeable, knows how the different schools are teaching, and understands Geometry very well. She worked well with our schedule and is reasonable priced. Thanks!
Rona is a great teacher in one sentence; she is very knowledgeable and organized. Our daughter is so happy with her teaching and so are we.
Rona is an excellent tutor. She is very patient, and my son actually loves going to her session. He has gone from failing math to a B in just three weeks. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I am very satisfied with Rona's expertise and consistency of teaching material. She knows how to fill the gaps, and she does not have any wrong attitude toward students and treats them equally. I would recommend this teacher even though it may be hard at the beginning.
Rona is an excellent tutor!!! She met with my daughter (was on time) and tutored her on an extensive summer Algebra 2 packet due the first day of school (11th grade Pre-AP Algebra 2 class). Rona carefully went through each problem, step by step, ensuring my daughter understood the process. She was very patient. The pace was perfect. My daughter now has a completed Algebra 2 packet, ready for the first day of school, and a sound skill base. Thank you, Rona, for being such an excellent tutor!! We will definitely use you again in the future, and refer you to other students/parents.
Rona has helped my son by working on his individual needs. Before each test, Rona reviews skills on his Test Review sheet and prepares him with additional possible questions.
She has been very helpful and patient with my son. I have seen his grades improve tremendously. I would recommend her to any concerned parent that is trying to help their child academically.
We're so thankful to have found Rona. Her experience in teaching math is a true asset. My son has gained confidence in geometry due to his time spent with her and has a much better understanding of the subject. He dreaded going to class because he would sit there and not understand a thing. He is now engaged and thoroughly prepared for tests and homework assignments. He even finds himself raising his hand to answer questions the teacher asks during instruction time. Rona is always prepared and current with the curriculum. I'm most impressed by how much she cares for my child's success.
Rona is awesome. Prior to our son's first lesson he was getting 50's in his PreAP Algebra 2 class. The day after his first session he got a 94 on a quiz on conics. He has had a total of 4 sessions with Rona and his last 2 major test grades were an 89 and an 84. The one test being an end of grading period cumulative test. He has never passed one of these cumulative tests before. This improvement in his grades is exactly what we had hoped for. His overall grade has gone from a 59 to a 77 in just a few weeks. I can't say enough good things about Rona. She is a wonderful, caring person who really knows her subject matter and can explain it in a way that my son understands it. (Something his regular teacher has been unable to do) She is worth every penny.
Rona made it easier to understand geometry concepts. Explanations were detailed, understandable and straight to the point. The lesson was very helpful.
Rona has been a tremendous help to my daughter. She has helped her understand the material better and given her the confidence she has needed in the class. I recommend her to anyone!
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
