About this tutor

I am a senior at the Gatton Academy of Mathemetics (Kentucky's first residential STEM school). At Gatton I take dual credit classes through Western Kentucky University and have been doing that since the beginning of my junior year. Because of this I already have 2 semesters worth of college credits.

I am currently taking Honors Calculus II which means I can tutor all the way through Calculus I/AP Calc AB.

I tutored many students at my home highschool through my school club Mu Alpha Theta. I’m young which I believe can allow me to develop a stronger relationship with the students I’m tutoring since they will most likely be younger than me. I have learned that age groups closer together develop stronger relationships which can then lead to an improvement in that student’s work ethic and understanding of the subject that they require tutoring for.

I'm a hard worker and can motivate your child/teen to be a hard worker as well. I have earned numerous math awards and have won math competitions at my school. 

When I tutor it seems like I'm learning it with them. Tutoring is a great review for past topics, and because I make it seem like I'm learning it with them, even though I've most likely alreadt mastered the topic, it makes them feel more reassured.

    amazing!!!! so sweet and helpful. my daughter really enjoyed working with haven, and haven even helped my daughter outside of tutoring hours. haven gave my daughter her number, and my daughter was always able to contact haven whenever she needed help.

    HIRE HER!!!! So helpful and kind and patient!! She helped my 2 boys go from averaging C's on their math tests to high B's, low A's. They also never got A's on math tests before, but with her help, they began to! She also helps them with ACT Prep. I remember her telling me her ACT Superscore is 34! And she got my boys from low 20s to high 20s (almost 30) in a few weeks! She's younger than my boys, and so I knew they were a little bit intimated and probably a little embarrassed that a girl younger than them was teaching them math that she already took, but she was just so kind and enthusiastic about teaching them. She's so understanding also! She was only supposed to tutor one of my boys, but after observing my other boy, she offered to help him with his math as well!

    she was so helpful and so kind with my kids. they can be handfuls and at times be frustrating but she was so patient with them and stayed longer than she scheduled without extra pay because she said she didn’t feel comfortable leaving without making sure my kids understood the topic she was teaching them. i also always hear my kids laughing because she makes them laugh when they say they want a break but she gets them right on track after a few minutes. she’s young but fantastic.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I get to know them and introduce myself to them to start a trusting relationship and then I ask them what subjects in whatever math they’re taking they require assistance in. I do one subject at a time and whatever homework they have concerning that subject I help them do and then I give them more resources like worksheets to help them and strengthen their understanding. I make flash cards, I write notes, whatever helps them understand the material. And then we move on to the next subject that they’re struggling with or the next subject their teacher teaches them. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am in a highschool club called Mu Alpha Theya which is a national math club where club members can tutor kids. In order to join the club one must show an understanding of an advanced level of math and be in an advanced math course, Algebra 2 or higher. Club members must also show a great fascination and enjoyment of mathematics.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$15-$20 per hour. Pricing can be negotiable. 


How did you get started teaching?

With my highschool club, Mu Alpha Theta.


What types of students have you worked with?

Highschool students, and I occasionally work with elementary and middle school students in my neighborhood whenever they have trouble with their school work. I also help family friends.
