Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors in Carrollton, TX
"Altogether I have over 15 years of experience helping others with math. These "sessions" ranged from explaining stuff to friends during lunch, doing volunteer tutoring after school, helping to coach the MATHCOUNTS (national math contest for middle schoolers - kind of like the math equivalent of the spelling bee, but way cooler) team at my old middle school, leading calculus team practice, and formal for-pay tutoring through online programs and local organizations. I've worked with students who were behind and needed help catching up, and with students who were ahead of the game but wanted to get to the next level of math ...

"In my experience, a child often needs you to ask questions. Why? What’s going on? What’s our problem and how can we solve it together? They need to know you’ll care before they’ll answer. Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions."

"This really motivated me to look into this field more and do what I can to help our children do better. I'm determined to see the education level of this country rise. As a dancer, I was often put in charge of younger kids and helped them learn routines, especially ones that were struggling. I had a knack for helping kids remember their moves through catchphrases and alternate explanations of how the movement was supposed to work. I carried that over to my tutoring, where I would aid friends by coming up with mnemonic devices and extended metaphors that allowed them to understand the concepts better." ...

" Texas has so many great things to offer and so many wonderful people. I have always been studious, and I have always wanted to learn about a wide variety of subjects. I have taken every type of class imaginable because I never could decide what subject I loved more. That's why it took me so long to decide on a major! In all my difficult classes where teacher instruction has fallen short, I've just taught the material to myself from the text."

" Despite having a full-time job, about a month after graduation I realized that there was something missing in my day and that was school. While I do not have plans to return to school as a student immediately, I began to look into other venues where I could be involved in academics and help others succeed. The solution I found was to look into tutoring other students and that is how I found Varsity Tutors. My love of learning and education was instilled at a young age because both of my parents are teachers, my dad teaches Geology and my mom teaches 3rd grade." ...

" Throughout my education, I have learned the importance of having a solid foundation in any area of academia. That is why, as a tutor, I believe that it is crucial to understand instead of memorize. Although I am well-versed in many subjects, my favorite to teach are math and Mandarin. As a native Chinese speaker, I really enjoy sharing my talent with others."

"What I didn't expect, however, was for the process to be as mutually enriching as it became, with me happy and enthused about heading to my tutoring sessions. It was at that point that I knew I had not only the ability to help students understand, but also an obligation to share the wonderful experiences and knowledge that my journeys around the world have imparted on me. As a recent graduate of Southwestern University, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Communication Studies, I feel as if I'm seeing the world with new eyes; eyes unfazed by the haze of too many sleepless nights spent studying. I find learning opportunities ...

" I view mathematics as a way for young minds to know the thrill of learning a serious discipline in a high-energy, focused environment. We play and learn. We in the western world tend to focus on the science and discipline without incorporating the language and art. As an active musician and artist, I communicate the value in fine arts relationships to mathematics."

"I am currently doing research on Beta Lyra type eclipsing binary systems. While I love astronomy and physics-type sciences, I have recently developed an insatiable appetite for early classical through industrial revolution periods of Greco-Roman based history... don't ask me why... or do."
