About Avrila

I have experience teaching and tutoring mathematics from junior high to college level and have been teaching for Angelina College since 2013. My Spring 2016 classes are Basic Math and Business Calculus, to give you an idea of the range of material I can teach.

My favorite thing about tutoring, compared to teaching in conventional settings, is that we can speed up, slow down, or go forward, backward, or sideways in the subject -- anything to give you the understanding and confidence to succeed. Students sometimes tell me that they had never really felt like they were good at math before they worked with me.

Math is my favorite subject. I have a Master of Arts in Mathematics Education degree from Western Governors University and am 12 credits from a Master of Science in Mathematics degree from SFA.

Whether you're a struggling student, a GT learner who needs a challenge, an adult trying to get your GED, a parent who needs to brush up to help your kids with their homework, or anyone else, get in touch and let's see how good at math you can be!

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 2

I've taught Algebra 2 in a high school as well as Intermediate Algebra, the college developmental equivalent, at two colleges. I've also taught courses from before and after it in the sequence, so I can remind students of things they missed or forgot from previous classes and help them see where algebra is going.

Elementary (K-6th)

My undergraduate degree is in interdisciplinary studies with a pre-education emphasis, and I completed an elementary education licensure program in 2007. I enjoy working with kids one-on-one and in small groups because I can give them more attention than they would get in a classroom setting, which lets me show them how what they already know fits with what they need to know. I also like showing them how to use resources like dictionaries, encyclopedias, and age-appropriate websites to meet their natural curiosity needs; this gives them the tools to find information they need for assigned studies, as well.

Elementary Math

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics Education and my undergraduate degree is in Interdisciplinary Studies with an elementary education emphasis. I have also volunteered, student-taught, and substituted in a variety of elementary and intermediate classrooms where mathematics was taught, as well as my experience teaching higher level math which gives me insight into what the elementary math topics are leading toward.

Finite Math

My master's degree in math education from WGU included a class in finite mathematics. My further coursework at SFASU included a course in matroids for which we used a good deal of graph theory, a finite math topic. I have taught a finite math class for my local junior college several times, covering topics such as equations with business applications, financial mathematics, probability, and linear programming. My emphasis in teaching is on understanding the material through critical thinking, diagrams and sketches, etc., rather than just memorizing for long enough to pass the next test.

Fabulous tutor

We are going through transitions and Avrila has been very helpful with this. She has fabulous observations and insights into my atypical student that I have not received from school diagnosticians, therapists and special Ed teachers. Grateful parent.
