I am a certified math teacher with 14 years of classroom experience. Currently, my role as an educator has taken me to the central office as a technology integration specialist for the district and in the classroom. I have taught all levels of math -- from 6th grade to general math and AP Calculus. My favorite course to teach and tutor is algebra II. I look forward to sharing my passion about math with you and your student!
Ayushe S. tutored my son Cory for the ACT and for biology, chemistry, and pre-calculus. He suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and has a great deal of trouble with social interaction. We had such trouble finding an appropriate tutor fit with him, but then we thankfully found Ayushe. She was patient, warm, and incredibly kind. Moreover, she was able to completely circumvent the symptoms of his syndrome and truly treat him as a person--this was unique to me, because everyone else just gets hung on on how he is different and often end up treating him very strange as a result. Ayushe did wonders with Cory because she was able to pinpoint and emphasize his learning style, manipulating common subject material into a form that was more digestable to him. He did great on all his tests and assignments for the high school science and math, and even raised his ACT score by 8 points! The best part of the ACT tutoring was that I didn't have to buy anything at all: Ayushe had practice tests, formula sheets, and basically everything Cory could have needed to raise his score. We actually tried All Pencils Down before we met her and he didn't really see much of a change. I think that is because most test prep companies tend to focus on teaching "test-taking strategies" that may or may not work for everyone in the class. Also, Cory has trouble speaking up when he is confused so even a small class of 15 people is too much for him when it comes to raising his hand and speaking up. So, tutoring was definitely the way to go. We tried a few different tutors before we found Ayushe. The other tutors were more like a resource for questions, which was a difficult approach for us since we weren't familiar with the test and didn't know exactly what questions to ask. These tutors were best for people who have test prep books, practice tests, etc., and just need explanations for math or science questions that are confusing to them. Ayushe worked better for us because she provided us with everything Cory needed and actually made a personalized timeline tailored to Cory's weaknesses and strengths on the ACT. So, the $40/hour for ACT tutoring was well worth it in the end--especially after all the dead-ends we met with! All in all, I'm very glad that Ayushe was recommended to us. Even though Cory will be finished with high school soon, I am confident Ayushe will keep up with him and maybe even help him when he gets to college if he decides to go with UAB! I am very happy with everything she has helped Cory with and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor!
