About this tutor

   I have been teaching/tutoring math for the past 37 years.  I have taught/ tutored basic math, prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, SAT, ACT and TSI prep for college entrance at a high school in San Marcos, Texas and Austin Community College.  I have dozens of students and parents that have used my services over the years and will testify to my ability to break down math into basics that students understand easily.  I have authored a Geometry  book and a fundamentals math prep book for college entrance exams like SAT, ACT and TSI.  I have also spent 2 years teaching GED in inner-city Indianapolis.                      I have the ability to break math down into steps as well as evaluating where the problems are when someone is stuggling with a math comcept.  Fundamentals are the key to upperlevel math concepts and entrance tests.  I also have a website called Readysetprepforcollege.com which offers a Saturday session review for students on their math basics which are necessary to ace the SAT, ACT and TSI tests. I was voted San Marcos "Secondary Teacher of the Year" two different years and my nickname was "The Math Whisperer." 

Making a difference.... as most teachers do!  I have tutored for 37 years and still love doing it!  I love hearing a student say"Ohhhhh, I understand now!"

i have been voted in my school district 2 dofferent years (2005 and 2019) "Secondary Teacher of the Year" because I try to reach each student where they are, I have an arsinal of short-cuts/strategies, I understand learning styles/learning disabilities and I am really good at evaluating missing basic skills that keep students from learning higher concepts.

    Mrs. Voyles is amazing. My 13 yo grandson has learning disabilities and could not do math. After working with Ms. Voyles for two weeks, his attitude completely turned around and he loves math. He made 94 on his report card. Ms. Voyles explains math in a way he understands, Is patient and encouraging. She is a God send!

    Mrs. Voyles is old school in the very best sense. She makes sure that her students understand key concepts, rules, and formulas--then provides lots of examples so that they can practice and master the material. Her passion for teaching always shines through, and her friendliness and warmth put people at ease. A marvelous educator!

    Mrs. Brenda is the definition of an educator. She is knowledge in her scope, and very patient with my daughter. She assess her weakness and then systematically makes improvements to establish a strong Math platform to build Upon.
