Sandra J. Macika
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from De Anza College, California, with a degree in Math and Computer Science.
I have over 17 years of experience teaching Math and Computer Theory & Repair. This includes over 5 years Math Tutoring experience plus 6 years Teaching Math. I can work with younger students, older students, and adults as well - covering anything from Beginning Math to Calculus. I have worked with several students from Tutors.com, and all have shown significant improvement in their grade and comprehension. Please see the reviews from clients posted on my account.
I will go over the material with you and create Homework and Practice Tests as required. I will show you Study Tools and methods of organizing notes and study guides, as necessary. I have a great Card System that works for keeping information and formulas easy to find, that will grow as you learn. I use physical pieces to represent Math Concepts in a visual form whenever possible, such as plastic pieces for fractions and building 3D shapes; quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies for percent; beads for adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division; rulers and number lines; etc.
I love seeing students succeed!

How did you get started teaching?
My first teaching experience was with a summer program teaching computer theory and repair, math, and electronics for students age 6 to 13.
I then taught adults computer theory and repair in the industry.
I have always liked to teach and have done much informal tutoring. I have been tutoring formally for over 5 years.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I have worked for the Wayne/Oakland Science Olympiad (WOSO), Elementary students, since 2015. I write and proctor the Astronomy Event, and work with the Coaches who prepare their students for the Event.
Science Olympiad is dedicated to expanding the science curriculum beyond the classroom, creating a technology-literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by students. It requires teamwork, science, and engineering skills.
