About Gwen

A little about my experience:

I have been teaching Algebra, Elementary Statistics, and College Success at San Jacinto College for three years as an Adjunct Professor. In addition to teaching at the college level, I am also an intervention teacher with Houston ISD working with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to prepare them for STAAR. Before teaching, I was Sales and Marketing Manager for a frozen food manufacturer for over ten years. I am passionate about teaching and helping students to succeed. I take pride in my role not only as a tutor, but also as a mentor to my students.

My tutoring style:

Typically, during my first meeting, I try to establish some type of rapport and connection with the student. During the tutorial sessions, I try to identify my students' learning gaps and focus on closing those gaps. I prefer to get the review and lessons ahead of time so that I can prepare for a productive tutoring session. My goals as a tutor are to assist my students to be independent learners and enjoy the learning of math on their own through practicing the problem solving process.

A little about me:

Besides academics, I also teach money management skills to teenagers and young adults as well as guiding them through the process of college application. I have been following Investor's Business Daily for two decades and have been investing in rental properties for over ten years. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, camping, cultural activities, hot yoga, watching math videos, and working out at the gym.

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.

Algebra 2

I teach Algebra in college for over 3 years. I have also tutored many college students.

Career Development

I am an adjunct faculty at a college teaching College Success, a course that teaches college students how to be successful in college and in life. Part of the curriculum of this course requires students to create a career project that involves finding a major, taking various tests to discover their strengths and weaknesses as well as interests and selecting suitable career choices. I have been teaching this required course at the college for two years. I have references who can provide testimonials to my experience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified EC6 teacher. I taught at HISD for 5 years (K through 5th grade) and interned at Alvin ISD for one semester.

Finite Math

I have tutored finite math at my college for college students and was a business minor myself in college. Finite math is really just using Algebra as application in real life business situation. There is a lot of algebra involved in this class, and I currently teach College Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Introduction to Algebra at a community college.
I will be teaching Statistics in the fall semester.

The Best!

My daughter who's in 8th grade struggled with algebra at school. We tried all the "tutoring" before school, after school but still didn't help. The teachers have so many kids and tend to do "group" tutoring that my daughter's issues were still not getting met. I jumped on line and found Gwen through WyzAnt.com. She is very flexible and can work with your child after school or early evening. My dau
