Award-Winning Elementary Math Tutors in Houston, TX
Hanna "...In college, I worked for America Reads and served as a reading tutor for 3rd graders in a NYC public school. And after graduation, I spent my time before medical school teaching self-contained 4th grade in Houston ISD. While I tutor a wide range of age groups and content areas, I am most passionate about tutoring math, science, and college admission tests (SAT and ACT). As a public school teacher, I am also very familiar with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade STAAR strategies and content..."
Sonya "...As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant responsible for teaching chemistry and microbiology labs. I believe each student is an individual and I adjust my tutoring style based on what works best for each individual. For example one child may benefit from visual learning while another student may learn best from a more hands on approach such as practice problems. I love helping students understand a concept that they previously struggled with..."
Amy "... My goal is to help students improve their skills and work through some of the pangs of learning. I appreciate that everyone learns differently and will help find their unique way to make it easier while making the course interesting. I cater to students by providing a safe environment to be wrong and to learn. I am available for tutoring in Algebra 1 and 2, General Biology, Math, and Science in the Houston Area..."

Trieu "... I grew up in Houston, TX and started tutoring during high school for students struggling with the math and science portions on the TAKS test. I discovered quickly that I really enjoyed working with others and can creatively think of different ways to explain key concepts to make them easier to understand. I continued this passion when I went to Austin for college, working as an undergraduate researcher, mentor, and preceptor for biochemistry. I worked with my professors to organize and conduct weekly study sessions and reviews before exam days..."
Judy "...I also homeschooled my three children for seven years. Two of my children have dyslexia, so I learned what works best with them. I love working with kids of all ages and try to help them in any way I can. I love to travel, spend time with family and friends, read novels, and entertain my dog and two cats..."
Sarah "...My ultimate goal with students is to make a connection with them and bring alive pre-algebra, phonics, the questioning mechanics of the SAT - whatever the student is learning. When a connection is made, we can bridge the gaps and make learning fun and lasting. Everyone can be a math person, everyone can love grammar, everyone can write a stellar paper. Every student is different, and every student can achieve success..."
Frances "...Though I enjoy working with all subjects, teaching Math is my passion. I know that everyone has the potential to understand Math. My goal is to make sure that every student that I work with realizes their own potential, becomes a more confident mathematician, and is ultimately able to reach whatever level of success they aspire to. In my spare time, I enjoy running, Barre and Pilates classes, and cooking..."
Brent "I possess both degrees in Economics and Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M and University of Texas, Tyler respectively. I have always been a strong student in mathematics and physics and have helped others throughout my student and teaching careers succeed in the subject. I help students succeed in this subject by breaking down advanced concepts in to the simpler concepts that are used to solve more difficult problems. I also help provide the reasoning behind each step used, so that students know when and where to apply them in future problems..."
