About MAMIE

Math has always been the one thing that came naturally to me. I grew up in a science and business family where crunching numbers was an everyday affair; be it from my accounting mother, economics father, or even from my engineering and science geek uncles! Thankfully the Math love bug bit me and it's one of those things I'll forever be grateful for.

I have come to the realization that Math does not come naturally to many people out there and this has made me more passionate about teaching and tutoring. There is no greater joy than seeing that light bulb go off in your student when it all starts to make sense.

I have experience tutoring students in Math both privately and from tutoring companies. My students come from elementary school all the way to college level and even adults seeking help for test prep exams. In addition to tutoring, I also taught several Math courses at Eastern Florida State College, Melbourne campus. My class size ranged from 10 to 30 students. I have also had returning students take various of my Math courses simply because I challenge them without being overwhelmed.

I specialize in teaching all math topics up to trigonometry, statistics, linear algebra, differential equations and everything in between.

My students' grades improved significantly and I also had returning visitors after their first math session. I am available for tutoring during the week from 11am to 6pm. I am able to travel for face to face tutoring or even meet up online!

My goal is to provide you value for your money and I look forward to helping you find your route to success in Mathematics!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored Math to several students with ADD/ADHD where 100% of them are from high school and college. All of them were also returning students and their grades improved significantly for all of them. Most of them ended up with an A grade, while some barely missed it by getting a B. I believe with my continued curiosity on learning different teaching techniques, my goal is to assist every ADD/ADHD student I come across by having them achieve the highest grade possible and also believing that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.

Algebra 1

In college, I tested out of algebra 1 and went straight to calculus. However, it's one of my favorite Math courses to teach and tutor. I believe algebra 2 is the starting point for anybody struggling with Math especially in high school and college.

Algebra 2

In college, I tested out of algebra 2 and went straight to calculus. However, it's one of my favorite Math courses to teach and tutor. I believe algebra 2 is the starting point for anybody struggling with Math especially in high school and college.

Differential Equations

I have taken various Differential Equation courses during my undergraduate and graduate degree in Mathematics. My favorite topics were 1st and 2nd differential equations, partial differential equations along with systems of differential equations. There are numerous ways of doing a problem in this class and I like to simplify this process for my students. So far I have been very successful using this approach on my students by breaking down and minimizing the steps. As time continues my tutoring style progresses and becomes more catered towards the student.

Linear Algebra

I love Linear Algebra and I took different course levels of it during my undergraduate and graduate degree in Mathematics. I continue to improve my skills and techniques by tutoring students mainly in college and also brushing up on my own. I do that by reading up on new and improved ways to solve certain linear algebra questions. I hope to help students that are struggling by showing them a different approach to their problems.

Prealgebra

In college, I tested out of prealgebra and went straight to calculus. However, it's one of my favorite Math courses to teach and tutor. I believe prealgebra is the starting point for anybody struggling with Math especially in high school and college.
