About this pro

It's normal for people to dislike the things they aren't good at, which is why a lot of people tend to dislike mathematics. I enjoy tutoring because as I get my students more comfortable with topics that they once thought to be impossible for them, they gain a lot of confidence in their own abilities. This confidence enables them to take on their academics with a more positive attitude, which sets them up for success in the future.

FAQs


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

I am a full time honors student at UTSA majoring in Statistics and Data Science, so I have taken a variety of high level math classes that apply skills I learned in garde school. This means my math skills are always fresh and ready to be taught. I work for Northside Independent School District as a high school tutor in their tutoring center during the day and have private tutoring side jobs as well. Because of this I have a lot of experience teaching in ways that suit to each of my students individual needs.


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

I typically charge $20 per hour, but if students need more than that I can add more time at a rate of $10 for each additional 30 minutes.


How did you get started teaching?

I have always been that friend that people would come to in school with their homework questions because I knew what I was doing and had very good grades. One of my past teachers noticed that about me and contacted me about a job opportunity at her school where I could help students and get paid for it. That is how I get my job working for NISD. After that parents were very happy with their students growth and began recommending me to their friends. As a result of that I started getting requests to do private tutoring as well. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I work mostly with high school students, but I do have some elementary and middle school students that I work with as well. This means I have a lot of experience with a large variety of topics in math throughout all grade levels.


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

A lot of the time I get students who tell me they need help with math, but they can't tell me what it is specifically that is giving them trouble. My advice would be to make sure you know exactly what you do and don't know within your topic so that the teacher knows what areas to focus their lesson on in order to maximize the students benefit from each lesson.
