I offer in home math tutoring: Middle school-calculus 2. I tutor primarily in the areas of Lake Highlands, Highland Park, University Park, and Richardson. I hold an 8-12 highly qualified mathematics certification with the Texas State Board of Educators. Additionally, I also offer tutoring for SAT and ACT test preparation.
During the 3 years I spent teaching in Houston, I discovered I had a unique talent for engaging students who walked into my classroom on the first day already hating algebra due to a long history of struggle. I work hard to take the fear out of math. I am very good at helping teenagers see their own abilities and become successful in math, sometimes for the first time in years. My students have frequently commented that I do a great job of explaining things on their level, but I never cause them to feel dumb because they do not know something or struggle to understand.
I find great joy in helping teenagers discover how amazing math is. Most students struggling in math have one main complaint: What use is this in real life? I love the opportunity to talk with students about the intricacies of math that run our modern world
