I was a high school math teacher for sixteen years. I work with each student based upon his/her level and what level she/he needs to attain. I meet students where they are and then fill in the gaps to get them to where they need to be. Once a student is comfortable with their math ability, their anxiety in math classes is greatly reduced. Although my focus has been concentrated in high school, I have also worked with younger children and adults of all ages.

I love math, so I love it when the light bulb lights up and my students have the slightest smile when they realize that they understand how to do a certain problem.

    Tonya is incredible! She is very patient with my daughter and was able to explain things clearly and accurately so that she not only completed her assignments but also understood how to do it it for class and tests. She is very responsive to both my daughter and me. Having her working with daughter made high school math so much better. Could not imagine a better experience in working with a tutor!

    Ms. Tonya is a great tutor!! She use multiple strategies to teach me the same concept. She helped me understand how a math problem can be broken down to smaller definable parts with the use of multiple problem-solving strategies. I would also like to add she was very understandable with my personal issues. I was able to reschedule with no problem. With her expertise I was able to pass test and can now obtain my license as educator... Thank you for your excellent skills!!!

    Frequently asked questions

    For younger students, I will initially work with the parent to assess what the parent feels their student is struggling with. However, no matter what the age, I will eventually have conversations with the student on what that particular student feels he/she does or does not understand.  My philosophy is that I am there to help the student and I want to make sure the student realizes that I want them to succeed.   In order for the student to succeed, there has to  a level of comfort and trust that is achieved by getting to know one another.

    I have a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelors of Arts in Secondary Education.  I taught high school math for 16 years in multi-cultural environments, including both a suburban and urban settings.  Even prior to obtaining my degree, I tutored in both the private sector and at a tutoring program I started at our church.

    Currently, my base pricing is $50 per hour for one-on-one online tutoring session.  Group rates are quoted on an individual rate. 

    As a math teacher, I watch the struggles of those students who are having trouble grasping the concepts of math.  Since childhood, I have always been the one who played teacher and it seemed natural that any degree I would get while in college would include teaching.  

    I have worked with every type of student, from suburban to urban, gifted to the diverse learner.  In addition, my experience also includes adult learners.
