Bio

I have a PhD from University of the Incarnate Word, a Master's in Mathematics, and a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics from UTSA. I have been teaching and tutoring for almost 30 years. I can tutor any type of math or statistics through the graduate level and any subjects in middle school or high school. I also do SAT/ACT/GED/AP/CLEP/Accuplacer test prep.

I have a PhD from University of the Incarnate Word, a Master's in Mathematics, and a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics from UTSA. I have been teaching and tutoring for almost 30 years. I can tutor any type of math or statistics through the graduate level and any subjects in middle school or high school. I also do SAT/ACT/GED/AP/CLEP/Accuplacer test prep. Additionally, I have a degree in education and can help with learning strategies based on learning styles and preferences. I have two degrees in math and a doctoral degree in education, and many years of tutoring and teaching experience!

I really love what I do. Helping others understand and be successful is amazing. Mathematics and statistics can be really tough. The secret is figuring out how to use your learning style and background to best understand. Not everyone learns the same way, and not everyone has the background knowledge the instructor might expect or the subject might require. I can help you identify your problem areas and what works best for you. If you are struggling, contact me and let me help!

I have taught and tutored statistics in high school and college--to math majors, business majors, and social science majors--for over 20 years. I have also worked as a Director of Institutional Effectiveness in which quantitative analysis was the primary focus of my daily work. Statistics is a powerful tool for decision making-it is one of my favorite areas of applied mathematics.

So helpful!

Darla was easy to work with and super helpful. She helped me to really understand my problems. She made me feel like I was her only client. Thanks to her I was able to pass my difficult math class!!!

GREAT EXPLANATIONS-By Darla K

Darla is able to take complex concepts and explain them in a way that is easy to comprehend. Great preparation on her part, great examples and practice questions. I could almost hear the curriculum developing as she taught and assessed.

Excellent Math Tutor!

Darla has been tutoring my son in Algebra for several weeks now. His test scores have dramatically improved from Darla's tutoring sessions. She has the capability of explaining mathematical concepts with extreme precision. She is very patient in her teaching style and very thorough. I would highly recommend Darla for tutoring high school and college level math. She is prompt, courteous, and genuinely cares about the success of her student in understanding and mastering mathematical concepts.

Excellent Start

Darla communicated extremely well throughout the initial process. She met with my son and within a day he felt much better about the upcoming class and structured support Darla was helping him create. Could not be more pleased with our decision to use Darla to help my son establish a sound understanding of College Algebra.
