About Sandra

Hi Everyone. My name is Sandy and I am a recent college graduate with a bachelor's degree in Mathematics. I love math and I am fully aware that with most people, this admiration is not mutual. However, I honestly believe, whether you do or not, that everyone is capable of learning mathematics. There are two levels of Mathematics, math you understand, and math you will eventually understand. Some math, even for me, takes more time and effort but it is always possible to learn and do well in any math class. I am a very patient person. When you take several mathematics courses, for instance to acquire a degree, you learn how all math is related. Also, you learn that there are several different ways to learn, teach, and solve every problem. This is very useful when one approach fails. Through my experience as a tutor, tutoring friends, coworkers, and clients I have found that most teachers demonstrate only one approach to solving a problem. We all know that each individual's needs for understanding something are different. This is why I feel it is extremely important to demonstrate every way to solve each problem until one approach works. Visualization may be the best way your child learns, therefore, for any problem whether it is a discrete counting principle or a linear equation, several visualization techniques should be demonstrated and explained. HOMEWORK: Homework is vital to your child's or your understanding of mathematics. Practice does make perfect. I have never taken a math test without doing the homework. In mathematics homework is the key to learning the material and building confidence in your understanding of the material. My teaching approach is to explain the material, demonstrate the problem in every way possible, and then work through some of the homework problems with the student. In most cases, depending on the students teacher, most exams will consist of problems very similar to the ones assigned for homework. Hi Everyone.

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.

MATLAB

MATLAB, Matrix Laboratory, was the most common tool used throughout my mathematics career. I used MATLAB in, Linear Algebra I and II, Complex Variables I and II, Linear Programming, and Differential Equations. In addition to Performing simple matrix operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, transpose, powers, and array operations and graphing objects in the Complex Plane I completed several extensive projects including but not limited to designing and implementing algorithms to produce optimal solutions to linear systems using Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) Systems and Reduced KKT Systems Design as well as implementing an interior point method, finding the KKT conditions, central path, and a path-following algorithm using Convex Quadratic Programming.
