I am an experienced tutor in mathematics, and a current student at the University of Florida. I've been tutoring in a variety of maths for about 5 years. I have experience tutoring in any math course from pre-algebra (math I) to college level calculus 3. This includes all of the following:

Pre-Algebra (Math I)
Geometry
Algebra I
Algebra 2
Pre-Calculus
Calculus 1 (AP Calculus AB)
Calculus 2 (AP Calculus BC)
Calculus 3
AP Statistics
IB HL Mathematics

I have a very visual way of thinking, and I emphasize truly understanding the content rather than just memorizing methods. I always do my best to ensure that the student has a full understanding of the material so that it can be easily applied anywhere it is needed in any math course. Math is about expanding your way of thinking through logic. There is no problem in math that does not have a logically deduced answer, so if at any point in math you find yourself thinking that some things in math must be memorized because they simply do not make sense, I hope that I will be able to show you that that is not the case. What I'm best at is teaching the reasoning and the logic behind concepts in mathematics, and by showing the concept, it should provide you a better understanding so you can truly understand what it is you are doing and why.

Amber is smart, determined, and dependable. She will work with you until everything makes sense, which is saying something because the class she was helping me with was physics, and you know how that stuff isn't straightforward. Plus, Amber actually likes math, which is a strange and beautiful fact in it's own right. She just graphs stuff for fun.

Amber helped me while I was struggling with synthetic division in my Algebra two class, she was such a help and joy to work with that I actually understood everything stemming from that lesson. Since being tutored from Amber initially, I have come back in classes such as Statistics and College Algebra, and definitely recommended to my friends! She has such a clear and concise way of explaining things that it makes the material a breeze to get through.

Amber is a great tutor and friend. She helped me pass my middle school math classes with flying colors, and still helps me to this day. I've always struggled in math but Amber makes math easier. I definitely recommend her to anyone that struggles in math.

Amber was instrumental in getting my son into Algebra 1. The first semester he really struggled in class but once Amber started tutoring him twice a week (two hour long sessions) he really started to pick up so much interest and confidence. I could not recommend anyone more than Amber!
