## About

Teaching has been my passion since I started tutoring math and science about 10 years ago. I specialize in Calculus, Algebra, and Physics. I find that a teacher can make or break a class so I strive to teach each student in a personalized way that matches how they learn best. With my assistance, your child will gain the knowledge and confidence they need to complete their class work, ask questions in class, and excel on exams.

Sophia is awesome. Very accessible. Turned my sons calculus grades around in just a few sessions, giving him more confidence and focus with each lesson. It also radically changed the teachers perception of his skillset. I highly recommend her for your math tutoring!

Sophia got my son caught up on his missing assignments and after working with her he not only passed his Calculus final but got an A!! She would even help my son over text if he got stuck on a problem after their session. Thank you for being on my son’s team this semester Sophia!

I took my last physics test today and made a 97%! Thank you Sophia for all your help this year! Physics scared me so much but no matter how anxious I was you always made it easy for me to understand. I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you again!

## Frequently asked questions

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

I find that a teacher can make or break a class. This is the number one reason I tend to get students who need tutoring. I have had to teach myself a class or two because of this. To combat this, I like to teach students in a personalized way. I make a point to morph my teaching methods to each student, and it is usually obvious which methods click right away.

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

I've worked about 10 years tutoring math and science (6th grade through College) on my own and through two tutoring companies. I've taken 4 levels of Calculus and 4 levels of Physics.

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

I charge $60 per hour.

### How did you get started teaching?

I was homeschooled until 8th grade and my parents focused heavily on math so when I started classes in public school I caught on to the math lessons quickly and would be asked by friends for help. I started going to their houses to volunteer tutor them once a week or so and absolutely fell in love with teaching and helping my peers. When their grades improved, some of their parents insisted on paying me and recommending me to their friends and I have tutored ever since.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I helped a college student pass their class and afterwards they told me without my help they would have had to drop their major. Now they're reenergized and on track to complete their degree. Moments like that keep me energized and excited about tutoring. I love seeing real differences I helped someone achieve in their life.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure they are dynamic and like tutoring! Some things I've heard my students say are "my tutor before you couldn't see when I was struggling to understand" or "the tutor before you seemed like they just didn't want to be here.”
