About Ingrid

I have more than 2 decades of experience (K-highschool)in the classroom and tutoring (general education and special ed). I enjoy teaching students of all ages (including college age). I believe that math should be meaningful and will help my students see how math connects to the real world. My focus is always on understanding concepts rather than simply knowing how to get the answers. I can help struggling students figure out the gaps in their skills and prevent future difficulties. I am currently teaching high school geometry in Plano, but I can tutor evenings and Saturdays in Plano, Allen and McKinney areas.

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 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for many years. My experience is with all levels but I am drawn to students with learning differences. I can build students' confidence in themselves and help them be better problem solvers. I can identify skill gaps and work to fill those to improve performance in algebra.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught students grades K - high school. I also have many years experience writing math activities and assessments for elementary. I have a special interest in early number development as well. I believe that we must help students acquire number sense.

Elementary Math

I taught 5th grade math for about 16 years in Plano. During that time I was a math specialist for the district and was involved in curriculum writing and mentoring teachers. I have also taught Kindergarten and 4th grade.

Geometry

I am currently teaching geometry. I love geometry because it requires logical reasoning. It is a very visual subject and I am a very visual learner and teacher. Geometry problems are based on figures and real-world applications. I can help students make sense of those postulates and theorems!

Prealgebra

As a high school algebra and geometry I know what skills are required to be successful in high school. I have experience teaching a pre-algebra class and have tutored kids to get them ready for algebra.

Study Skills

I can help students prepare study material and practice study skills to prepare for tests. My expertise is in math of all levels. I believe that prior knowledge frequently gets lost when learning new material. By supporting new learning with acquired skills, students do better on tests!

TAKS

I have given the TAKS test for many years to high school students. I understand the objectives and structure of the test. I teach high school and enjoy students of that age. I also have experience with teaching students with learning differences and have worked with ESL students.

Awesome Teacher

My son's grades markedly improved after only a few lessons. She is so worth it. We decided to keep her long term and now doing 2 hours a week. She is patient, pleasant and very knowledgeable. My son is extremely satisfied and looks forward to her lessons. I highly recommend her.
