I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12). I have been a Level 5 teacher (highest effectiveness score as determined by State of Tennessee) consistently throughout my teaching career. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry at the high school level and 7th and 8th grade math at the middle school level. I currently work part-time for Knox County Schools as a Numeracy Coach assisting math teachers with curriculum and teaching strategies. My goal with a student is to help them improve... [more]

My tutor expertise includes math (Pre-K to Calculus), English (concentrating on essay composition, sentence structure, grammar, reading, and language arts), ACT/SAT test preparation, chemistry, economics, and accounting. I also tutor any subject that mainly requires study skills and memorization, such as history, psychology, and biology/anatomy. In addition, I am a study skills/tim... [more]

As a tutor, I strive to improve more than a single grade or subject area by working with my students to develop better habits and study methods. Individuals learn differently and at their own pace so I focus on both strengths and weaknesses to improve problem-solving and organization skills. I believe that with the right kind of support and encouragement anyone can be a 'math' or 'science' person. My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics from the University of ... [more]

I went to school to study physics and ended up getting a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics. After working in applied physics for a while I realized that I really missed the experience of teaching. My goal now is to continue working at Colleges that focus on education and work on creating strong distance learning techniques and problems to bring STEM education to those who do not currently have easy access to it. I have worked with students who have struggled in everything form algebra to cal... [more]

I have been teaching and training for the past eighteen years, including as a teaching assistant at the University of Tennessee - Knoxville during graduate school. I am particularly adept at communicating complex topics in a way that helps students understand them. I will keep explaining from different angles and using different tactics until the student and I have success. The look on a student's face when they finally "get" a topic is one of my great pleasures. I tutor in elementary subj... [more]

The strategies I can teach you can help you put your knowledge of math and the format of the ACT Math Test to the best possible use. They can?t replace knowledge of math, but solidifying (or even learning) a few key formulas that get recycled on the test (some several times) will have a positive impact on your score. Wherever you are at, learning what 5 additional formulas to learn (and which ones to avoid) will make a significant difference in your score. I am currently an instructional technologist at the University of Tennessee, supporting technology use for language teachers and students, [more]

Why I tutor As long as I can remember, I've been helping students in school. I've spent much of my life as an academic coach -- from correcting my younger brother's algebra homework to editing college essays for high school students -- and I'm currently working for a tutoring company in Knoxville while I complete a graduate degree in applied mathematics. I've been a coach for so long because I enjoy it, but students ask me back because I bring enthusiasm, hard work, and personalized att... [more]

I have been tutoring various topics in math for around three years in a professional capacity. The ages of students I have tutored have ranged from 8th grade up through remedial college which encompasses adults of all ages, and I've taught a few homeschoolers in the mix. I currently go to the University of Tennessee, and I am working on my bachelor's degree. My major is math and my minor is education. At Pellissippi State, I tutored from remedial math up through business calculus 1 and el... [more]

I decided during college days that I wanted to teach. I majored in Mathematics in college. So, I continued my education and received a Master of Arts in Teaching at the University of Memphis. My minor was in Mathematics for my graduate degree. After college I taught for a short while in a Baptist elementary school in Memphis. I found out very quickly that I did not like teaching in a classroom. Most of my time was spent in classroom control. I did not enjoy that. So, I moved to severa... [more]
