Tracy Schwieger

From a very early age, my goal has been to be a person who makes a difference in the lives of others. So you could say, I’m living my dream.

As a child, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. When I was in 7th grade, I realized my passion was math. This passion drove me to a B.S. in mathematics at Arkansas State University and a M.S. in Education a Northcentral Arizona University.

In my 23 years of teaching algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, my greatest satisfaction is having former students (especially the ones who struggled) tell me I was the one teacher who believed in them, and that made all the difference.

My approach to tutoring is very similar. I do not just teach math; I teach students of all ages how to think and reason.

I truly believe that confidence is the key to success — in school and in life. That’s why I start by assessing what a student knows and what they don’t know. Then I build on that as they go from confusion to confidence, confidence to competence, and competence to mastery.

Carly C.

Carly C. graduated from University of Michigan with a B.S. in Neuroscience. She has tutored while in school and after graduation in subjects such as Math, Science, ACT/SAT, and the ASVAB. Carly has experience tutoring elementary level students through collegiate level students, as well as students who are neurodivergent. She loves helping and pushing students to reach their academic best. She strives to ensure that each of her students understand the material using different strategies and techniques. Two of her favorite quotes are:
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life thinking that it’s stupid.” – Albert Einstein
“Intelligence is not measured by how much you know but by how much you have the capacity to learn.” – Francesca Zappia

Dimitry P. L.

Dimitry is a math college professor with more than 16 years of teaching experience. Most of the math subjects that he teaches and tutors range from algebra, precalculus, trigonometry and calculus. He has also tutored many middle school and high school students taking algebra classes and AB and AP calculus. He is the perfect candidate to help your child find the love for mathematics. Most of his students have shown immediate progress considering that they do their own part. He is also multilingual speaking Spanish, French and English.

Spencer C.

My name is Spencer C. And I am a 3rd-year medical student. I have been tutoring for a little over four years in various subjects. Given my background, I specialize in STEM courses but am comfortable with just about anything. In my free time, I train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and frequent the beach.

 

 

Natiah R.

Natiah has a Bachelor degree in Actuarial Mathematics. She has been involved in students association for more than 3 years and loved her experience in helping students. She has been tutoring different mathematics subjects for about 2 years and has been enjoying every second of it. She is very sociable and loves to meet new students!

Ashley A.

Ashley Aemisegger has a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. She is currently in a Master’s degree program in secondary education at Grand Canyon University (Arizona) with a focus in STEM.

Ashley has extensive experience tutoring high-school students in physics, chemistry, calculus, and algebra, and prides herself on adjusting her instruction to meet each student’s needs.

Growing up in the military gave Ashley a unique appreciation for different cultures and experiences. Today, Ashley spends much of her time in England and adores travel.

In her free time, Ashley loves reading fantasy novels with one of her cats curled up on her lap.

Willy V.

Willy graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelors in mathematics. He recently graduated from the University of Maryland with a PhD in math education, where he prepared undergraduate elementary and middle grades preservice teachers. Prior to his PhD program, Willy taught Algebra 2 and Probability and Statistics at a secondary school in Virginia and was the distance coach for the school’s track team. He is certified in secondary math in Maryland and can tutor students up through precalculus. Willy has spent a great deal of time exploring digital math resources and exploration tools and is well-versed in Common Core math standards. His approach to teaching and tutoring is to help students engage with the math, build confidence, and develop personal relevance to the topic.

 

 

Kyle G.

Kyle G. has a dual degree in Math and Physics, but his love and passion for the STEM fields started long before college. During elementary school, he developed a deep curiosity for math – not just for successfully solving problems, but for learning the intricacies of how and why math works. In his spare time, Kyle pursued his other main passions: community and teaching. He was a leader within his Boy Scout troop, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in 2005. In college, Kyle focused his studies on Math and Physics with some added Education courses. Since graduating, Kyle has worked in the field of lasers and optics for more than 15 years although he never gave up on teaching. Even while occupied with his professional career Kyle still managed to serve as an adjunct professor at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and as an instructor for LiDARs.
These days, Kyle is fulfilling his passion for teaching by bringing his excitement for STEM to students who need a little (or a lot of) extra help to feel confident or to guide students who are ready to ramp up their learning trajectory. Kyle’s philosophy is that no two students are the same, so he focuses on adapting to how each student learns. He also loves fractals and doing proofs.

 

Dominic E.

Dominic E. received his BA degree from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) in Jazz Studies. He is an accomplished musician who has won multiple awards for his playing and musicianship and has performed many different genres of music in several states. Dominic is a multitalented and skilled person whose love for music is only matched by his passion for math. Dominic’s love for math began when he was very young. He has been in advanced math classes, won multiple awards for his math abilities and academic performance, and uses his free time to discover new ways to understand and approach math. He believes that math is vital to many things which we do and he loves seeing students understand and come to appreciate it, as well as see its application to everyday life. In addition, Dominic recognizes that people learn differently and he has developed many ways to help students understand math, science, and music. Dominic firmly believes that math and music are intertwined and he, therefore, combines them in his teaching and tutoring when it is appropriate. Dominic is a unique individual who does not always learn in the traditional way that some schools teach. He has a strong desire to understand things on a deeper level so that they make sense to him and he seeks to help his students understand information and not just give back what was provided. He prides himself in meeting students where they are and helping them find ways to understand that work for them. One of the things that makes Dominic enjoy his work so much is when he is able to help students understand and go from struggling to success. Dominic has tutored many students in levels of math from elementary through advanced college, worked as a substitute teacher, taught small groups of students, worked as a high school teacher in math, technology and science, and tutored students in music from beginning to very advanced levels in theory, composition, performance skills, transcription, and song writing in most genres of music. Dominic combines his keen sense of humor and deep knowledge base to challenge students to understand material while building their confidence to try things which they previously thought were difficult or impossible – often times by tapping into their creativity.
