## Very helpful for Math

Sarah, 28 lessons with HeatherHeather P is amazing at teaching math! I was really confused with everything until I started doing tutoring sessions with her. After just a few sessions, I understood everything so much better! She is also very kind and patient with you. I highly recommend her!

Hi, I'm Heather! My experience & expertise includes various math topics within PreAlgebra thru PreCalculus, as well as Trigonometry and Geometry.

I began tutoring math at Yavapai College in Arizona in 2001, at which time I received Tutor Certification through the College Reading and Learning Association and earned the Outstanding Tutor Award while working in the Learning Center. One student in particular stands out to me from this experience. Historically a C student, through tutoring she...

#### Algebra 1

While working towards my degree in Mathematics Education, I took several upper level math courses, which in turn helped me understand lower level concepts. Since 2001, I've successfully tutored College students in Beginning Algebra thru College Algebra/PreCalculus. And since 2006, I've taught and tutored math students in Middle & High School (7th thru 12th grades, with topics ranging from PreAlgebra thru Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry). Students I've worked with have all been more successful in their math courses.

While working towards my degree in Mathematics Education, I was required to take a Geometry course which covered Euclidean (plane) & non-Euclidean Geometries - primarily through proofs. Since 2006, I have also taught high school Geometry (before the switch to the spiraled core) and have taught & tutored 7th thru 11th grade spiraled core mathematics (which all include geometry topics).

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

Trig is so awesome! It allows us to use what we know about various types of triangles to find unknown values! What's more, it simply builds on what we already know about basic math and algebra. My college degree program was in Mathematics Education, where I studied many mathematics topics in more depth. Since 2001, I've successfully tutored College students in PreCalculus (including Trig). And since 2006, I've taught and tutored High School math students (9th thru 12th grades, which includes topics in Trigonometry). Students I've worked with have all been more successful in their math courses. Let me help you understand Trigonometry better!

## wonderful, patient teacher

We’re so grateful to have such a patient, kind tutor. Looking forward to more sessions. Josie felt much more encouraged after really struggling to understand math.

Kimberly, 2 lessons with Heather

## Patient and thorough.

My daughter says she has been very helpful and she enjoys her sessions with her. She is simply just great! We will continue to seek her for our tutoring needs.

Sai, 9 lessons with Heather

## Knowledgeable, patient, clear

Heather has been incredibly helpful for my son in Math 3 (Junior year). She was patient, easy to understand and was clearly invested in him learning the material. We will be absolutely using Heather again and cannot recommend her enough!
