Hello! I am a Texas Certified Math Teacher with many years of tutoring experience and numerous happy student/parent clients :) I have students in Frisco, N. Dallas, Carrollton, and Plano. I am more than familiar with the local ISD curriculums, as well as curriculum used by several private schools.
I am particularly talented at narrowing down a student's aptitude, needs, and learning style. I like to have a sense of humor with my students so they can meet the challenge of math with a positive attitude. We can meet in your home or a local library. Most of my 2015-2016 students meet me at Haggard Library in Plano, on Coit between Park and Parker. I tutor days, evenings, and Sundays.
I teach all levels of mathematics, from elementary to middle and high school math (grades 6-12 including Algebra I & II, Geometry , Math Models and Pre-Calc w/ Trig, on-level, Pre-Ap and AP classes). Because I teach all levels and math subjects, am more than familiar with the math they need to currently succeed, as well as the math skills they will need in the future and what to emphasize depending on their individual needs. My students and I get a great deal done in an hour. I clear up any questions or misunderstandings, reteach if necessary, and get them ahead for the next day's material so they recognize what they are seeing in the classroom. I also assist with study skills, quiz/test review, and STAAR/SAT/ACT test prep.
I can help your student become a more fearless, successful problem solver. Math can seem daunting to both student and parent. If you have tried to help your child with their homework, you likely understand that frustration!
I pride myself in being a tutor who not only knows the math, but also knows how to successfully TEACH the math! Having a degree in both mathematics and education, as well as a strong familiarity with the way in which the curriculum is currently presented in the classroom, allows me to assist students in ways many tutors cannot. Please allow me the opportunity to help!
Feel free to call me any time. I am happy to provide rates and references.
Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to speaking with you.
