A long time mathematician, I exhibited unusual talent from an early age, excelled in algebra during high school, scored in the top 6% on the SAT math section, and further developed my algebra skills in college. Throughout various careers, I have effectively applied my algebra skills toward streamlining my work. I have since used my knowledge of the K-12 math curriculum & current best instructional practices to successfully tutor many elementary, middle school, high school, and college students in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, improving their algebraic thinking & preparing them well for [more]

I have tutored in Algebra since retiring from teaching in 2013. I use skills honed in practical applications in Physics to help students understand Algebra concepts. In tutoring, I have learned how to use a graphing calculator to manage difficult tasks such as solving 3 equations with three unknowns using matrices. I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013. In my last school, I taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, and tutored students for TAKS and STAAR tests. I also taught middle school integrated science at a previous school, and have helped [more]

Understanding algebraic concepts and their associated operations will be imperative if you intend to succeed in your future STEM classes and standardized exams. In fact, solving for unknown values is one of the core objectives of any natural science, (quantitative) social science, or mathematics course. Algebra II will introduce you to an additional range of methods, over and above those in Algebra I, in order to do so. Moreover, you will explore various types of advanced relationships (e.g., Conic Sections) and functions in this course that are incredibly useful in modeling experimental data. [more]

I'm in the business of making students happy. At the end of the day, that's my goal. I want to make learning fun and exciting. My passion for knowledge led me to graduate school and a PhD in biology. Now as a tutor, I am always learning new things about my subject areas and study skills. I've written several WyzAnt blog posts that offer my advice and perspective on learning science; feel free to check them out! I earned a PhD in neuroscience (Northwestern University, 2009), and I have te... [more]

I have taught Algebra II and Honors/Pre-AP Algebra II at the high school levels for over 30 years. I have written curriculum and developed instructional activities for both these courses. So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7t [more]

I have extensive experience tutoring both high school and college students in all of the Algebra classes. My patient and thorough approach is proven to be very effective with students. I have a long history of tutoring math and science at Austin Community College in addition to working as an engineer, so I can understand the application of the math and science. But more importantly, I want my pupils to learn the subject matter so they can solve problems on their own. I believe in a very patient approach that encourages the student to believe in their ability to learn the material and perf [more]

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university?s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (100+ verifiable hours). I received my Bachelor?s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics (Class of 2013) which includes algebra thro... [more]

I was an engineer in the semiconductor manufacturing industry for 25 years prior to becoming a teacher at St. Michael's Catholic Academy. While there, I taught Algebra 2 for nine years. With this experience, I brought a problem-solving methodology to the classroom. In other words, my teaching practice included providing whenever possible, more than one way to solve a problem. I also included visual demonstrations whenever possible, using my hands, drawings on the blackboard, and my one and only 'Parabola Dance'. This was where I moved up and down, and left and right, while announcing change [more]

Algebra 2 is one of my favorite subjects to teach because it's where math really starts to get interesting. I have taught over 1000 students in Algebra 2 which has given me an eye for individual needs of different students. Whatever your struggles in Algebra 2 may be, there is a way to solve the problem and it isn't as difficult as you think at first glance. I taught math for five years at at Austin High School and I believe in making math a language that everybody is fluent in. I take a holistic approach to the learning process and believe it is learned best like any other language: with regu [more]

This course extends the topics first seen in Algebra I and provides advanced skills in algebraic operations. Additionally, linear and quadratic functions and relations, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphing, and sequences and series will be explored. Designed for the main stream and honor/AP student. Hello, my name is Temisha. I have been a provider of supplemental instruction (tutoring) since 1991. My post-secondary education is in Human Services, Psychology, and Education. My undergraduate work was done at Saint Louis University and my Graduate work at Southern [more]
