Southern Methodist University (Mathematics and Management Science)
I am a graduate of Southern Methodist University who received a dual B.S. degree in Management Science and Mathematics. I graduated 19th out of 456 students from my High School in 2005. In high school, I was a member of Mu Alpha Theta, a mathematics honor society, hence my focus being in mathematics tutoring. I was also a member of the Spanish Honor Society, National Honor Society, and Who's Who Among Students. Personally, I am involved in my church and work part time for State Farm Insurance. I've tutored friends, family and classmates in various subjects but most were math-based (i.e., geometry, algebra, precalculus, calculus, etc.).
My most recent tutoring experience was tutoring a 10th grader for her geometry STAAR exam. I myself am a visual, hands-on learner, especially in math; I truly believe that is the only EFFECTIVE way to grasp mathematical concepts, but, every student is different. It would be my job, as a tutor, to find THAT student's way of how he or she effectively learns and then present the concept(s) accordingly. I believe in establishing a comfort and confidence in a student's knowledge of the basics before progressing into higher level tasks. A motto I live by in my academic, professional, and personal lives is: BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE! Once a foundation is laid, nothing can destroy it! I look forward to hearing from you, parents and students! I am a graduate of Southern Methodist University who received a dual B.S. degree in Management Science and Mathematics.

My son is very happy with Ms. Ashley. He said Ashley explained math that helped him understand it more and she is patient.
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.
Having a solid elementary education is the foundation for success throughout school. I was fortunate enough to have great elementary school teachers, but from the elementary students I've tutored previously, some of them unfortunately do not.
Most of my experience in tutoring elementary education come from my own family and schooling. I was a part of the mentor program at my elementary school where the 5th and 6th grade students would assist the kindergartner-4th grade students with their homework in the after school program. I've also tutored younger cousins with their elementary coursework as well.
From my experience with one cousin in particular, I've noticed that she's just being taught by traditional, study and repeat methods, which work for some students, it worked for me. But for some students, she being one of them, you have to relate the material to something relevant to their world for them to grasp it, take it off the textbook page and make it more than just words which I've been able to do for her. I thoroughly enjoy seeing students that struggle with traditional methods finally get it! It boosts their self-esteem and confidence and makes them more comfortable. That's what I enjoy.
I graduated from a public Texas high school in 2005. That class of seniors statewide was the first class that had to take the TAKS test instead of the TAAS test to graduate, so I remember taking the test, and also know that there are questions on the test that are not taught throughout the school year which is very unfair.
I've tutored my own 11 year old cousin for her 5th grade reading and math TAKS as well as neighbors and the younger siblings of my friends. I believe the 8th grade TAKS has algebra 1, 2 and geometry on it, which are my strongest areas.
The way weight given to the TAKS--fail it and you don't graduate or move to the next grade--is very unfair, so my goal would be to first, calm the student and relieve any nerves or pressure the feel so they can focus, secondly to assess which concepts they are struggling with, and lastly help the LEARN the material, not just know it long enough to take the test, but to actually RETAIN the material and pass the TAKS.
