I am an experienced, highly qualified, expert math tutor, having taught both in a classroom and one-on-one. I have been helping students overcome their fears and doubts about mathematics for over eight years. I provide an individualized custom learning plan and the personalized attention that makes a difference in how students view math. Though math is my specialty, I also have extensive experience tutoring students in SAT and ACT prep.
My love of teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. With a double Master's Degree, I know that hard work and dedication to learning can pay off. As a college instructor and tutor for the last few years, I have had the pleasure of helping numerous of students realize their own potential and see their grades and test scores improve.
Working with me as your personal tutor is a pleasant experience. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. From my experience, each student has unique talents, inherent ability, and the potential to learn. They generally do not have any difficulty understanding the materials, they only need to find their best learning style and a strong motivation, which I hope to help them discover in my classes.
My focus is always on understanding concepts rather than simply knowing how to get the answers. I am able to identify gaps in student understanding and come up with a plan to fill those gaps and lead the student to success. Whether we are working on Pre-Algebra or college level mathematics, one of my goals for each session is to keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign challenging homework after every lesson, and provide periodic assessments and progress reports. I will work with my students to find the method that best suits their learning style. I will show them ways to LEARN and not just MEMORIZE math.
No matter which subject you or your child is finding challenges with, I will help raise your or his / her test score. I have tutored children with F's and D's and see them improve to B's and A's. I am an excellent tutor and I focus on understanding each student's own learning goals and how he or she likes to work.
All students can learn to do Mathematics!
The significance of math is astronomic. In addition to in school and on standardized tests (like PSAT, SAT, GRE, GMAT and ACT), math is vital in our careers and for our lifetime success. It is required for many college degrees and in almost all jobs now. It is the key medium that trains your brain to think logically and make rational, sound decisions. Unlike most other subjects in school, Math is very sequential. If students do not grasp an idea from pre-algebra, it can haunt them throughout their high school career. I can determine what building blocks are missing in a student's math learning and turn those weak areas into strengths. Mathematics is more conceptual than knowledge-based. With many subjects, a student can easily prepare for a test by memorizing facts from a review sheet. With math, however, students become stuck as they hit concepts they cannot comprehend on their own.
Whatever your mathematical needs and whatever your time constraints, I will be able to provide you with the very best private math instruction available in Dallas/ Fort Worth area. I would love to be a resource for you and your family this school year!
