“**Geometry**”

Hello! My name is Sandra and in March 2015 I finished my BA in Mathematics with a focus in Teacher Preparation. In addition, I also received a minor in Learning, Education, and Societies. In my minor, I took classes such as Educational Neuropsychology, which help me learn how the

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

For Algebra I specifically, I spent 2 years with the Seattle Public Library's Homework Help system tutoring mainly high school freshmen and sophomores taking Algebra I. This included helping them understand their current assignments, and coming up with new problems for them to practice before their exams.

Algebra 2, specifically, is a subject that I have had the most experience tutoring recently. From January - June 2015 I volunteered in an Algebra 2 classroom assisting students with understanding the material. In addition, I have been tutoring Algebra II students throughout my 5 years of tutoring.

There is a saying in math, which goes, "the hardest part about Calculus is Algebra." When I tutor Calculus, I never assume that the student has perfect knowledge of the Algebra that is being used. I ask questions to figure out all the parts that might be confusing, even if those parts involve going over parts of Algebra again!

I have a BA in Mathematics with a minor in Education, Learning and Societies. I did the first two years of my degree at Seattle Central College, so I also have experience in the community college system. I have been tutoring for 5 years including 2 years with Seattle Public Library's Homework Help program, which included working with several geometry students. My other tutoring work has come from working with the Seattle MESA program and UW's Pipeline program to directly volunteer in Seattle Public School classrooms, which also included Geometry students.

Although I have not done much Linear Algebra tutoring, I do have a math degree from the University of Washington, and I passed Linear Algebra with a 4.0 when I took it in college. I am happy to work together with you to help you build foundation and study habits for this interesting branch of mathematics!

Specifically in Precalculus, I have recent experience tutoring in trigonometry, which is typically covered in a precalculus class. I also spent a quarter in 2014 tutoring Precalculus students at Ingraham High School through the Seattle MESA program at UW.
