Texas State University (Education and Math)
I am a sophomore studying Interdisciplinary Studies with emphasis in Middle School Mathematics at Texas State University. I spent the last year at the University of Delaware studying the same. Last semester through their education program, I was able to start teaching in a real classroom. This program allowed me to gain experience and knowledge that wouldn't otherwise be available to me for another two years. I've been working with children for the past five summers as a swim instructor, both private and group lessons, and a team coach for my neighborhood swim club. In addition, I have seven younger siblings ranging from sixteen to one. All of these life experiences have given me exposure to instructing quite an array of age groups.
I believe in pushing my students to work their hardest and acknowledging their every accomplishment to emphasize positive reassurance. I am a strong believer that motivation encourages students to progress faster. I strive to work with parents to establish a reward system ahead of time. This motivational tool really pushes students to want to succeed.
Math can be complicated but with some helpful tricks it becomes as easy as pi.
Vocabulary is best learned by using the words in everyday conversation. This allows for true understanding of the meaning of the vocab word.
Students tend to retain information that they find interesting, therefore I aim to find a connection between the content and the student.

She has taught Abram to be more careful and check his work. She is showing him to understand the problem better than he has done in the past. Very satisfied with her tutoring methods.
After working with Alexandra for an hour, my son understands everything he was having trouble with in his upper level math. Amazing!
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.
