ACT English


ACT Math

Assess, strategize, and implement proven techniques that will help students perform well on the math section of the ACT.


Elementary Math

This is one of the most fundamental math course in a student's education. I focus on the basics and build up from there. I like to ensure that the student doesn't memorize the concept but retains and can apply appropriately. I pay special attention to how a student learns and tailor my lessons to fit his or her learning style.


Managerial Accounting

I have a BS and a MS in Accounting and Information Management. I have also tutored college students in introductory accounting along with intermediate accounting. I have two years experience in public accounting and do tax accounting for a catering company.


Financial Accounting

I have a BS and a MS in Accounting and Information Management. I have also tutored college students in introductory accounting along with intermediate accounting. I have two years experience in public accounting and do tax accounting for a catering company.


Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored numerous elementary students in reading, math, writing, and English. I am currently working with a number of students and have increased their comprehension and math techniques. I believe that I have the ability and the personality to truly nurture students of this age and help them learn the concepts that they are struggling with.


Study Skills

I have mentored and tutored numerous college and high school students on how to master study skills (time management, organization, discourage procrastination, etc.) in order to be as successful and efficient as possible in school. I am currently doing some non-profit work that focuses on the overall development and preparedness of local youth.


Business

I have a breadth of knowledge in the business industry as I have worked in Corporate America and various aspects (marketing, accounting, non-profit, sales, etc.) for eight years and counting. I have experience preparing and developing skills to be successful in these areas and beyond. I know the skills that are business leaders, recruiters, and managers look for in prospective employees. I have a master's in accounting from The University of Texas at Dallas and an MBA from The University of Central Florida.


ADHD

I have tutored several high school students (ages 15 all the way to early 40s) in the Dallas metroplex (Rockwall and Garland) in English and in Algebra. All of those students have received an "A" in his or her course. I have helped them be successful in their classes/courses. My strategy was to always be very brief in my explanation of the concept and focus on his or her kin esthetic ability or desire (the desire to move while learning). I accomplished this by showing an example of a problem and then having him or her simulate what I have just done. This worked very well for all of the ADD/ADHD students that I have had. I approach each student and determine what in particular causes their attention deficiency. I hone in on this and make learning fun and steer away from techniques that are "boring" to them which, as a result, may trigger their ADD/ADHD.


Hard of Hearing

I am very patient with students that are hard at hearing and/or need more detailed instruction and help with their classes. I have worked with a student in the past who had difficulty hearing and I emphasized a system that allowed the student to utilize her other senses (such as sight and touch) to compensate for her deficiency in hearing. I focus on illustrating the material more visually versus speaking through the material. I also created a system to where the student could show me where and what they were not understanding.


Linear Algebra

I specialize in preparing students in understanding concepts for this course. I have assisted approximately 20 students both high school and college. I have taken this class personally on the high school and college level in the process of attaining multiple Bachelors and Masters degrees. Each time I have taken this course I have received an A. I utilize unique strategies and various skills to identify a student's weaknesses. I am able to assess the weaknesses based on a diagnostic that I provide during our first lesson. I then implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehend the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers for various questions as they go throughout this course.


TAKS

I specialize in preparing students for the TAKS test. I utilize previous test questions and implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehension of the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into. I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answer and avoid them. I implement mock tests to try to simulate the environment and also deal with test issues such as anxiety or lack of confidence. I currently have a number of students that I am working with in their math course along with preparation for TAKS.


TEAS

I specialize in preparing students for the TEAS test. My background consistent of tutoring the necessary math, reading, and language arts skills needed to pass this exam. I have assisted one student I utilize previous TEAS V test questions that focus primarily on a student's weaknesses. I am able to assess the weaknesses based on a diagnostic that I provide during our first lesson. I then implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehend the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers and avoid them. I implement mock TEAS tests to try to simulate the environment and also deal with test issues such as anxiety or lack of confidence. Another component that I address, is quickly getting the correct answer. TEAS is a test where you have to move quickly in order to get through all of the sections and questions. I currently have one student that I helping to prepare for this test.


STAAR

I specialize in preparing students for the STAAR test. I have assisted approximately 15 students pass this test (English, Writing, and Math portions). My background consistent of tutoring the necessary math, reading, and language arts skills needed to pass this exam. I utilize previous STAAR practice questions and released exams that focus primarily on a student's weaknesses. I am able to assess the weaknesses based on a diagnostic that I provide during our first lesson. I then implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehend the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers and avoid them. I implement mock STAAR tests to try to simulate the environment and also deal with test issues such as anxiety or lack of confidence. Another component that I address, is quickly getting the correct answer. The STAAR exam is a test where you have to move quickly in order to get through all of the sections and questions.
