DEVELOP A TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF MATH BY LEARNING THE OBJECTIVES AND REAL-LIFE APPLICATIONS (college-level).

Hello Student and/or Parents,

I'm a home school educator specializing in math, science and writing. Professionally, I am a private educator, K-12/college tutor, engineering graduate, and I.T. professional. My students find my presentation, style and methodology in tutoring to be quite simple and straight-forward. Students need a fun or at least interesting way to master the basic fundamentals so that they never forget. I use simple, easy, and quick to remember methods, formulas and acronyms so that my students retain information and know when to use it. I present in a systematic format, using repetition of the information, exceptional practice, demonstration by the student, and lots of patience and encouragement. I provide examples that they can keep and slideshows they can view over and over again.

I typically spend 3 hours per student for every one hour of tutoring time in preparation and post-support and communication. I use a variety of methods depending on the student's needs. We all can learn if information is kept simple and interesting. I hope you feel confident in my words and will entrust your student's success and future to me. I do not take it lightly and I would be committed to your student's success. Math is my most sought after skill and I also specialize in entrance exam prep for college entrance and military acceptance. I am equally successful in various other subjects, such as reading, writing, and sciences. Sessions can be online or in-person, day or evening, 8am - 10pm. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your or your child's goals.

Ms. Sandy

I have served as a home school coach and teacher for elementary, junior high and high school students for the last 5 years. I have learned to make education fun by using all sorts of outside activities, games, competitions, and physical models. My schooling never feels like school. My priority is to build a student's confidence in elementary k-6, then with the confidence growing give student's the skills necessary to read any book and solve any elementary math problem using a fantastic curriculum. My students look forward to coming to my tutoring sessions each week. History, science and writing composition are areas I focus on as well. Each tutoring session is limited to one subject, but I am available to teach all elementary subjects.

Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is still my favorite math as it is the most analytical. Most students do not care for Geometry because it requires so much analytics, but once students learn the fundamentals of Geometry, they are better equipped to move into phase two, which is to analyze problems which require the application of the fundamentals to prove something true or false, or to find a solution. Geometry requires strong analytical and critical thinking skills which are not learned, only exercised and strengthened. I use a variety of tools and exercises related to geometry, logic, and reasoning to improve critical thinking skills. I also teach students the monumental process used to follow the logic and solve the problem. Whether it is elementary geometry or high school geometry, the goal is to learn the objectives and build our children's ability to think critically and see what is not there. I would love to help.

STAAR

I am a homeschool educator who works with students to become 2 academic grade levels higher than their actual grade levels. The STAAR Test, 2 levels above their grades, is given to my homeschool students as a requirement of promotion. Comprehensive reviews of objectives are a regular part of my homeschool regimen. I have a 100% success record in preparing students for the STAAR - all subjects, public and homeschool students.
TAKS,

TAKS

My TAKS preparation program includes taking the latest released TAKS test as a preliminary to identify where students are having problems and address those specific objectives. Once the objectives have been sufficiently covered and mastered, the student and I will work through every question on the practice test to reassure each is understood, then the student will take the practice test again alone. We will evaluate whether the student is prepared to pass the TAKS test or additional tutoring is required. Usually requires 4-2hr sessions in entirety. (8 hrs total; usually one month)

Personalized Tutoring Plan

Casandra did a great job working with my son. He was required to take a math placement exam before being allowed to enroll in an advanced math course for college. Casandra was able to immediately assess his areas of weakness, devise a schedule for their tutoring sessions to cover the required material by the exam date, and then tutor him to success. We had a very short time frame to work (only a few weeks), and also had to contend with my son's summer school and work schedule. But Casandra was able to schedule all of the time he required in order to ensure that he was prepared to pass the exam, and never made us feel like an imposition on her schedule. I also appreciated the updates after each session which gave me an opportunity to dialog with Casandra about her ongoing assessment of my son's preparedness. At their final session, she also gave him a strategy for taking the practice exams to build up to the live exam, as well as study strategies once he is in college. Not only did he pass the exam, but he did so with points to spare and has a new-found confidence in his academic ability. Thank you, Casandra, for coming through within such a short time frame. The confidence my son now has is priceless.
