I am a certified Special Education teacher with an emphasis on teaching math skills. I have approximately twenty-five years of teaching experience in the area of Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Studies Skills. My education degree is in Special education with a emphasis on learning disabilities from Johns Hopkins University. When I moved out to Tucson Arizona, I found a job as a advisor/tutor in the Special Service Department at Pima community College where I taught study skills to college students with learning disabilities. However, there was a need for math tutors, especially in Algebra. Therefore, I enrolled in several math classes while tutoring at the community college so that I could become a math teacher.
When I moved to Texas in 1989, I taught resource math and language arts skills in Austin ISD for several years but my next goal was to obtain my math teaching certificate which I accomplished in October of 2004. Since then, I have been teaching Resource and Inclusion Algebra 1 & 2 and Geometry in Pflugerville and Round Rock ISD. When I had retired in 2014, I continued tutoring math for WyzAnt and became a substitute math and special education teacher for Round Rock ISD. Becoming a special education teacher in the area of learning disabilities has always been my main goal since struggling with dyslexia as a child. Therefore I can understand the classroom struggles a math student may experience and help him achieve success by devising learning strategies along with providing timely feedback. What makes tutoring so rewarding is not only seeing a student improve his math skills but also see his confidence increase over time.
One of the best teachers ever!!!
This is our fifth year with Tracey and I cannot say enough great things about her!!! She has helped my son with 7th grade math, Algebra 1, geometry, Algebra 2 and now Pre- Calculus!!!Tracey is so patient in explaining all the concepts with him and teaches very thoroughly! We would be very lost without her. I always tell her what a huge blessing she is to our family!! She is by far the best math teacher/tutor we have ever had!! This year she has also been helping him with ACT review. I don’t think there is anything she cannot do.Naveena, 200 lessons with Tracey
