Texas A&M University (Applied Math)
I have been a math teacher in public schools since August 2005 with experience teaching algebra I, algebra II, geometry, and 6th grade math. I have had student success on state-administered tests (80%-plus passing on STAAR/EOC for math). I enjoy making puzzle-type games for my lessons to help improve my students' thinking skills and using the technology provided to enhance these lessons.
I have tutored math in some capacity since I was about 13 years old. Throughout the years, I have helped students ranging from 4th grade math to college statistics. I feel that one-on-one tutoring helps build the confidence of the student as I am willing to break down the concept needed to be learned as much as possible. Also, I like to check for understanding during each session, whether it is through a small assessment near the end of the session or just a quick question while we are going through a lesson. I love finding out some of the interests of the student because then I can incorporate it into a problem that I can help you solve!
I am also available to assist in SAT prep, ACT prep, STAAR prep, and Microsoft Office programs.
During the regular school year, I normally tutor weekday evenings after 6:00 PM and Saturday mornings after 9:00 AM, but this can change if needed in cooperation with tutor and student. My availability increases during the summer. My posted hourly rate is ALWAYS negotiable.
I look forward to helping you (or your student) become more successful in your math endeavors!

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 taught or tutored all the math subjects covered for the ACT since 2006. Between the content tested and using test taking strategies, students that I have tutored have received an increase in scores for the standardized test.
I have taught at least one course in Algebra 1 every year that I have been a high school math teacher (eight-plus years). Many of the students I have tutored one-on-one in Algebra have been very successful as well. This course is the backbone of every math subject taken after this one. It's all about knowing the step-by-step way to solve a problem. I would show this through the paper and pencil method. When that doesn't work, I'll show how the graphing calculator can be used as a tool to help.
I have taught or tutored at least one course of Algebra 2 in the last 3 years. It is one of my favorite subjects to help students with. I will help reinforce Algebra 1 concepts to provide student success.
I have taught or tutored at least one course in Geometry every year for the last six years as a high school math teacher. Many of the students I have tutored one-on-one in Geometry have been very successful as well. I consider this course as "Algebra with Shapes" because of how much Algebra exists in this course. I will show you how to the properties of each shape needed to be discussed can be used to solve the problem in a step-by-step way. As always, the graphing calculator will be used as a tool to help.
I taught 6th grade math for one year, but I have tutored students at or around this grade level throughout the years. The foundation of later math classes is set here in prealgebra. More and more skills from Algebra 1 are being brought down to prealgebra.
I have helped students in the past with this subject, which serves as a bridge between Algebra 2 and Calculus. I had great success taking this course in high school.
I have taught all the major math subjects (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2) to help students prepare for the SAT.
Trigonometry is key in other math subjects, such as geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. Since I have helped students in the past be successful with these subjects, I feel I am more than qualified to help students in trigonometry.
