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.
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 daughter loves her teaching style. She told me "mom , Ms. Gwen breaks it down so I can understand it. Why can't my teachers teach that way!". After her first tutoring session she finally made a B on a test. I took her back to Gwen for her mid term finals for Algebra.. My daughter made a 94!!! Gwen is patient and clearly evaluates her student to see what information the child needs in order to bridge the gap. I highly recommend Gwen to anyone who needs assistance in math. She clearly has a passion for math and it shows through her dedication with each child she works with.Maria, 5 lessons with Gwen
Mrs. Gwen, was so welcoming to me into her home even thought I showed up 30 minutes earlier by mistake. She introduce herself and I the same ,we talk for a few then we went straight to work on my Finite Math. I was scheduled for 2 hours but, she worked with me for 3 hours because I have such a hard time with math it's not at all my strong subject and also I should have selected another type of math class instead I Finite Math thinking it would be easier for me. I learned a lot of different tools from Gwen during my session, even though it was hard for me, and she shared videos I can go over with at home as well and other materials to further my advancement in my math class. Mrs. Gwen is a "Awesome" wonderful tutor with patients, and knows her math and how to help her clients. I would highly recommend her to any one who is struggling with Math.Rachel, 1 lesson with Gwen

Very patient and informative
Miranda had a great session yesterday. Miranda has been struggling in algebra, but after her session with Gwen, she said it was a lot easier that she thought. She came away with 4 full pages of notes to study and help her. Miranda and I are very happy to have Gwen tutor her. Thanks Gwen.Linda , 2 lessons with Gwen
Gwen is an outstanding tutor. My daughter said that Ms. Gwen made it so easy for her to understand, better than her teacher. She was very knowledgeable and patient with her. Also, she worked with her on building her organizational skills. We are very happy with her.Kim, 4 lessons with Gwen

Gwen has picked up on my grandaughter's weak spots so that she can help her get ready for school.
Working with my granddaughter on Algebra and will also work on English as time permits before the school year begins. Hoping Gwen's availability will allow us to keep working together throughout the school year.Cindy, 4 lessons with Gwen
Very patient, very clear and sweet
I was really happy that I am able to understand a lot more than I could ever. She did a very good job & definitely I feel pretty confident that I will succeed. I am going to continue working with Ms. Gwen for sure. I am very glad. Thank you again.Shirley, 2 lessons with Gwen
