In Person w/Portal Access
- Private Tutoring
In-person instruction is based on teacher provided materials. These sessions are meant to be an extension of the classroom & designed to build confidence and help students master the material.
I use supplemental materials to customize the instruction for each student.
This plan includes 1 or 2 sessions per week and 24 / 7 access to the online portal.
-Full Teacher Services
I offer full instructional services for Mathematics in grades 8 - 12. This service is for parents that want a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum taught by a certified instructor. Interactive lessons are taught live within the portal with video replays available after the session.
This plan includes 3 sessions per week, course materials, & graded homework, assessments & projects.
In each of my tutoring services, I work with students in all kinds of academic situations. Kids that are struggling to catch up & kids that are striving to get ahead. Public school, Private school, College level, Virtual school, and Homeschool...all are welcome.
Tutoring Services for Public & Private School Students
Typically, my belief is that tutoring is not a replacement for classroom instruction. I have always worked as a complement to the classroom teacher. However, in the current situation in education due to the pandemic, having a private tutor or full time homeschool teacher may be the difference in your student successfully completing a course and moving on to the next level.
I spent a decade in the classroom - read my background & credentials here - and regular attendance is absolutely necessary for students to be successful at this level of mathematics. Direct interaction and feedback from the teacher is so important but may not be possible with the asychronous learning solutions that many districts have adopted.
In-Person Sessions are done at my office in Texarkana. It is conveniently located and easy to get to with plenty of parking.
Each session is 1-hour long and focuses on the student's instructional needs based on teacher provided materials. For struggling students that have gotten frustrated and discouraged, I start exactly where they are and build them back up to a place of confidence and proficiency. For students striving to get ahead, I start with listening to their goals and making a plan to help them achieve them.
I have the one thing that most teachers don't...and that is time. By having a regular tutoring schedule with your child, I am able to identify strengths and weaknesses, fill the gaps when needed, and help keep him from getting overwhelmed when things get tough. Most students who know they have a reliable lifeline outside of school stay engaged and don't give up. I will also collaborate with any teacher that is willing to help me help your child.
HomeSchool - Full Teacher Services
For homeschool students, I provide live instruction on ZachsMath Student Portal on Thinkific. Using tools that allow students to do the work interactively with a graphics tablet on a whiteboard, I guide and instruct throughout the lessons. Students do not just "sit and watch" while I teach. This is a very interactive process that requires the student to stay engaged.
I provide the curriculum, assignments, assessments, projects, and do all of the grading. I provide an ongoing Report Card that displays all grades as well as PDFs of graded assignments. Each unit is mapped to standards and follows a posted syllabus. I set the course up in the portal and you have 24/7 access to everything we are doing including the video replays of the live sessions that are available for the entire school year.
All you have to do is make sure they show up for class...kind of like dropping them off at school!
I look forward to working with your child this year!
