My name is Lesa. I have taught math in both private and public schools and tutored in personalized settings for over 33 years. I graduated Cum Laude from Oklahoma Baptist University with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Math Education. Two things that are unique about me are that I love math and I love teenagers! I have often heard students say "Thank you! I finally understand math and you even made it fun!" It is very fulfilling to me to work everyday doing something that I enjoy very much. I have a passion to help students 'get it' when their history has been frustration and failure when it has come to math. I take pride in student's success.

While raising my children, I did private tutoring, exclusively, for 15 years. During the time I tutored, I gained an insightful perspective on how typical non-math thinkers, approach math. My tutoring methods vary to find ways to help uniquely individual students grasp the multiple concepts that math presents. I believe all students can learn to do math, it just takes using different methods to tap into the way a particular student's learning style. I believe interaction of asking and answering questions is a good way to gauge understanding. Obviously, I enjoy working with students who have a natural inclination toward math, but, I have been extremely effective in helping non-math students finally have success in this area. While teaching at a public school in which students had a graduation requirement of passing their Algebra I standardized test, I would work 1 on 1 with struggling students. In addition, I have tutored small groups with peers helping each other. My classes were successful having a high percentage pass rate regarding these tests. I have taught 7th-12th grade math classes. I specialize in Geometry with formal proofs and all Algebra classes.

Beyond tutoring, I have over 18 years teaching experience in the classroom. I am very visual in my teaching as I seek to help students learn and retain how to work a concept. I emphasize process thinking as I work with my students. I believe that the development of thinking skills are profitable in all areas of life, both now and in the future. As I teach or tutor Algebra I, II & Geometry, the goal for me is that the students gain actual understanding of the process by which they arrive at the correct answer. I genuinely enjoy teenagers and I sincerely care about helping them actually learn and come to understand how to do math. I am very motivated to help many more become successful at math. I am available at any hour to contact and discuss what would be the best time to schedule a session. I look forward to meeting you.
