About this tutor

Hello! I am currently a math major, minoring in STEM education at the University of Texas at Dallas. I have a passion for math and helping others learn! I have aced all of my high school and college math courses from Algebra 1 all through AP Calculus BC, as well as other advanced courses.  When it comes to spelling, my experience comes from participating in spelling bees through out middle school, where I finished 2nd at the school bee in 7th grade, moving onto the regional and tying for 3rd. In the 8th grade I finished 1st at the school, 1st at regional and participated in the LISD district bee. I certainly have a passion for spelling! I started out tutoring informally, but I am now an experienced tutor having worked with students from elementary to high school. I have been tutoring since November of 2018, based in The Colony, Texas.

I truly enjoy working with kids and helping them understand, or teaching them something new. There is nothing quite like a breakthrough!

FAQs


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

Usually before the first meeting, the parent of the student will tell me the situation that required finding a tutor. For example, missing homeworks that need to be completed, an upcoming test, or overall improvement. In the first meeting, I like to get to know the student a bit and let them tell me what their situation is, how they are feeling about it, why they think they're struggling and how they think I can help them. From there, at the end of the meeting, I will let the parent know what I think would be the best plan of action.


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

I am currently taking courses to get my teacher's certification in mathematics. Because of this, I am gaining insight on how students learn best as well as different teaching strategies. Apart from formal education in teaching, I have taken a lot of math classes over the years and excelled in them. I have even assisted teaching a college level multivariable calculus course for a couple of semesters. I feel well equipped to do what I do.


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

My pricing is typically $30 an hour.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, I will be reducing the price to $20 an hour for accessibility, as well as the fact that I will only be offering online tutoring sessions.


How did you get started teaching?

I have always loved teaching, especially in my extracurricular activities. One day, on a local Facebook group, someone needed a tutor and I simply reached out. I loved my first tutoring experience and have continued with it since!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with elementary school kids as young as 3rd grade going through middle school, high school, and up to college.


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

Look for someone who is patient! In my personal experience as a student, a teacher who tries to rush through material and doesn't encourage questions is one who is setting you up for failure. If your teacher makes you feel like you can't learn the material, they aren't the right one for you.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask yourself this:

1) What exactly is it that I am struggling with?

2) How is my class structured now, and what part of that is holding me back?

These questions should help you identify where you are lacking, and therefore what you need to be supplemented in order to succeed.
