Texas Tech University (Mathematics)
Greetings! I am presently a Math Teacher at Lamesa Middle School in Lamesa Tx. Prior to teaching I have tutored elementary through high school students in mathematics as well as college-level algebra. I have decided that while teaching I would continue tutoring. I have a great deal of passion and dedication when it comes to teaching. I understand that mathematics tends to be viewed as difficult subject for most, and I would also love to change that perception.
I intend to further my education by acquiring a Masters in Educational Psychology. My goal is to have immediate influence in the education process and/or become a professor. Greetings!

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 experience in tutoring students in Algebra 1 from 2007 to present. My knowledge of the subject is supported by my performance in standardized testing. I have received Commended Performances in Mathematics for the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) standardized test.
Much like Algebra 1, my knowledge of the subject of Algebra 2 is also supported by my performance in standardized testing. I have also assisted teachers in instructing the subject. I have tutored students in Algebra 2 since 2008.
I have primarily tutored elementary students in Mathematics. Therefore, I would consider myself to have the most experience in this subject in terms of instruction and lesson planning. Since 2007 I have tutored Elementary Math.
I have scored well in Geometry through standardized testing. During high school, I assisted students in the subject during study hall and after school programs. I have tutored in Geometry since 2008.
During my junior year of high school, I studied Precalculus receiving a letter grade of A. I assisted my classmates in the subject. By helping the students, I was asked by the school to help more students in other mathematical subjects.
By acquiring an English minor, I have taken a number of courses that focus on reading and writing. These courses have involved primarily evaluating material of literature. The material would be either printed documents such as books or personal writings. By taking these courses, I have developed knowledge and skills in analyzing literature.
I have competed in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Spelling and Vocabulary for 5 years. I have received awards for placing in first for 3 of the 5 years. During the time I was involved in this academic event, I would lead study sessions with my teammates.
In taking collegiate-level Trigonometry, I have strengthened my skills and knowledge of basic trigonometry. After completing the course, I had received the letter grade A. Since 2012 I have assisted students in this subject.
