Overview

I have an A.S. degree in Mathematics from Laney College and pursuing my career as a Math Instructor.

I have been working as a Math Tutor at Laney College for the last 3 years. Laney Math Tutoring Center has an urban environment where we have about 70 Math sections per semester, hundreds of students every day and very limited number of tutors. This helped me to be well organized, responsible, very patient to students who have math difficulties.

I have a mastery plan, worksheet and necessary materials for your kid or for you.
Due to my experience, I have managed to find an easy or even fun way of explaining some of the hardest math concepts.

I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. I still remember my excitement when my calculus tutee received her first “A” on a quiz! I have a good rapport with students from diverse background.

I am a dedicated, hardworking person.

Heidi is a very experienced tutor. She explains everything effortlessly. She teaches her students with patience. I have learned so much from her and I passed my math classes because of her. I highly recommend her to all of my friends and anyone who struggles in math like I do.
