I have 22 years classroom experience in Texas High Schools and seven years experience running my own private math tutoring business. I am particularly interested in helping students who have failed the Exit Level TAKS Math Test and I have written a Test Booklet and filmed a DVD entitled "Ms Mack Teaches TAKS" to help students pass the Exit Level TAKS Math Test.
I understand that not everyone is good at mathematics and not everyone likes mathematics; however, everyone needs to pass mathematics to graduate high school and to get their preferred college degree. I try to make my tutoring table a very safe place to not know something. I will patiently teach and re-teach topics you need help with.
College algebra, TAKS math, all high school math classes, ACT, SAT, GED, and GRE mathematics, nursing school prep, homeschooling support, and math enrichment are all areas I am well versed in.
Thank you. Hello,

We contacted Lucinda because our daughter, for whom mathematics has always been a challenge, must soon take the THEA exam. Lucinda has been an excellent coach, and has helped our daughter both to increase her understanding of math concepts and to move faster in processing problems. We highly recommend her as a math tutor.
Lucinda (Cindy) is a wonderful tutor. After going through several other tutors and not feeling a sense of connection, I am thankful to have found her. I am an adult student who has always a major phobia of all things algebra, and she was very patient and thorough with everything we went over. She also explained things in a way that was easy to understand. I will definitely use her again.

I just wanted to come back and re-review since I just finished a full semester of college algebra with Cindy as my tutor. This was a summer semester, so it was very fast paced and stressful, but Cindy helped me tremendously, and I ended up making an A in the class. That is something I never in a million years dreamed I could do. And I feel I owe a great deal of that success to her help.
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 I is the very foundation of every Math above it ... including Calculus. A strong understanding of Algebra I is very important. I have lots of practice worksheets which are "self-checking" and lots of resources to help you improve your skills.
Will you use Algebra I in your future? YES!
Will you use Geometry in your future? YES!!
Well you use Algebra II in your future? Probably NOT .... unless you count passing College Algebra as using Alg. II in your future.
In Texas, everyone in College needs to pass College Algebra (unless you tested above it) .... so YES, if you plan to go to College, you need to know Algebra II.
I can help.
I would consider myself able to help with Calculus I (A/B) .... not sure about anything higher .... no one has ever asked for it!
I spent the last 6 years of my classroom teaching career teaching regular Geometry. I know Geometry.
I love Pre-calculus and the students who take it. Your teachers will be pushing memorization... I prefer to teach you by helping you UNDERSTAND. My methods will stay with you a lot longer.
I spent 22 years as a High school Math teacher in Texas. I have taught all of the standardized Tests which Texas has given from TEAMS to TAAS to TAKS. In 2006 I wrote and published and filmed a test booklet and DVD to help students pass the Exit level TAKS Math Test. I have a very high success rate.
