Wonderful and patient, answers all my questions and explains in a way I can understand.

Julissa is both kind and patient! I like that she draws out the College Algebra problems we are working through and how she emails me the work we reviewed. She methodically explains the problems and gives specific pointers for me to remember to prevent me from making similar mistakes.
Hannah
My daughter is a freshman in high school and has been struggling with math. However now, she is head over heels excited!! She learned in 15 minutes from Julissa, what she couldn't learn for many many classes with her regular teacher. After only her first session she went and googled some of the math problems they discussed to go practice, on her own! And asked that I bump her session with Julissa to twice a week instead of only once! Thank you SO MUCH!

I love teaching Math. I think math is very enjoyable and I share my happiness and knowledge, so my students could feel that also. You would probably laugh quite a few times during my Math class and leave it feeling way more confident that you could do it. I do not believe in memorizing Math, so we work on understanding and students are creating their own Math in a way. And creating a proof is a very enjoyable experience that you never forget.

I also love teaching online. There are so many wonderful tools for that now!!! For example, screen sharing. Screen sharing allows my students to see my computer screen if I'm explaining something and show me what they are working on their screens. As we progress through the class I share links on rules and definitions that my student doesn't remember or getting confused and we could work with that right away and also the notes on the class are still available on both of our computers, so it is easy to review, ask questions and explore ...

I've been teaching math for over 15 years and love sharing and showing how much fun math can be for everyone! I've tutored all levels of mathematics (middle school through college) I tutor all levels of mathematics from pre-algebra to differential equations. I teach at a local community college, and enjoy tutoring all levels of mathematics. I particularly enjoy teaching homeschooled middle and high school students mathematics! I enjoy working through problems with students to build confidence and problem solving abilities.

About Sharon

Best Calculus Teacher ever. She helped me so much in getting through AP Calculus BC.
Heather
I do not know what we would have done without Sharon to tutor our son in Calculus. She helped him work through areas in which he would get stuck and encourage him along the way. We were also able to have her help tutor our younger son in Algebra when he hit a concept that needed to be explained in more detail. I personally appreciate how positive and encouraging she is when the student feels like they can't figure out the problem. I'm sure my son will reach out to her for tutoring next year in college.
Melissa
Sharon has been a fantastic tutor for two of my children so far. She is able to help my kids see how to do the problems they are stuck on, but also do it in a way that the concepts stick with them so they can build on it and use it in later applications. I have no doubt that we will use Sharon again in the future!

"I am a sixth grade student, and Julia has been a very good math tutor to me for about 3 years already, and I plan to keep going to her for a while. I am seeing lots of improvement at school, and my MAP and other test scores have increased greatly since the start of Julia helping me out this year. Two things that are great about Julia as a tutor, are that she never, ever yells or gets frustrated when I don’t understand how to do something. Also, she takes as much time as needed to explain a hard problem to me, and she does that very clearly, until I fully understand how to do that problem. My overall opinion of Julia is that she is one of the best math tutors out there, because I had to go through many other tutors to find a good one, and Julia is the best."

"Mrs. Branch was my teacher for 3 years on Orcas island. Due to family and health struggles I often wanted to give up on ever graduating. However thanks to her dedication and passion for education not only did I graduate but she also relight my dream of one day teaching. I now teach in the very rooms she taught me and encouraged my education. The math lessons that I once despised her for assigning are now ones I used on a daily basis and am so glad she did not let me stop until I fully understood them."

"I wish I had found Aron earlier on in my math class, but nonetheless the couple of sessions we had together in preparation for my final exam made the difference! I received an A on the final thanks in large part for his expertise in breaking down a few difficult concepts I had been hung up on. Aron is extremely knowledgeable, professional and takes the time to ensure I understand the underlying principles behind the calculations. He has a very intuitive sense of explaining things from different angles so that the student is able to tackle a wide variety of problems. If you are looking for a math tutor, please stop your search right here and give Aron a call. He will exceed your expectations! I will be utilizing him again and look forward to the sessions!"
