About Candace


Bio

I have 4 degrees but teaching math makes me happiest. As a retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, I wanted to continue to make a positive difference. To this end, I earned my second masters in Education with an emphasis in math from ODU. I am a current Virginia certified teacher in Mathematics. Many moons ago when I was in high school, I got lost in the shuffle and there was one teacher who reached out to me--my math teacher. She inspired me to grow and instilled in me that my dreams...

I have 4 degrees but teaching math makes me happiest. As a retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, I wanted to continue to make a positive difference. To this end, I earned my second masters in Education with an emphasis in math from ODU. I am a current Virginia certified teacher in Mathematics. Many moons ago when I was in high school, I got lost in the shuffle and there was one teacher who reached out to me--my math teacher. She inspired me to grow and instilled in me that my dreams were possible. Now it is my time to pay it forward.

To make a positive difference in a student's life is a gift. It is my philosophy that each student needs the tools in order to open up their minds. The key is finding out how a student learns because we are all unique individuals. I have taught middle school 8th grade math, prealgebra, and Algebra II. In addition, in a high school setting I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, Honors Algebra II/Trigonometry, Elementary Functions, Pre-Calculus, and with the IB program Math Standard Level I and II taught calculus. I tutor SAT math (new) and Math Level 1 and Level 2 exams. Smile...Think Math!

Very Knowledgeable and Flexible Tutor

Just started tutoring with Candace. She is extremely knowledgeable and very flexible. She was able to meet me on short notice, and she was extremely flexible. Looking forward to future sessions.

Candace is extremely knowledgable about the subject! She jumps right in and does the work step by step right beside you. She's the bees knees!

Allen, 3 lessons with Candace

Great tutor.

Ms. Candace is very patient and extremely knowledgeable. You can tell she loves what she is doing. She is able to teach on the student's level. She not only teaches the course material, but strives to instill the "you can do this" attitude. I would highly recommend her.
