Jeff L. T. says, "Maria has been tutoring my son Aiden for several months in Pre-Calc. I've very pleased with her demeanor, inviting semi- Socratic style and thoughtful approach as she guides him through his lessons. She carefully identifies his strengths and weaknesses then helps him transition into more critical thought and reflection working through the why's, how's, and relevance of each problem area in the overall scheme. He comes to his own solutions (most of the time--lol!) in ways that build on his strengths and strengthens his weaknesses in a fun way. With Maria its not just getting the right answers, its understanding the right questions. Aiden looks forward to his sessions each week and his grades reflect her impact. I see his confidence building in learning. Most importantly, Aiden is smiling again when it comes to math and looks forward to preparing for each week! Thanks Maria!" Read more

Hello, my name is Alexandria. I worked at St. Petersburg College, where I tutored math for a year. I then spent two years tutoring at Tarpon Springs Elementary School. For the past five years, I have been tutoring privately. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of South Florida and am currently a PhD student in Biomathematics at North Carolina State University. I understand that math can be a challenging subject for many, so I enjoy finding ways to help people grasp mathematical concepts. Since everyone processes information differently, I love tutoring because it allows for personalized lesson plans tailored
