About Hope

family
My name is Hope Inselmann.  I am a native of North Carolina where I received my BS in Mathematics with a 3.0 GPA and Certification to teach at Meredith College.  I was a recipient of the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Scholarship, through which I money for college and summer trainings outside of my degree.   I also completed the Performance Based Licensure Program for NC teachers.   I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, and Advanced Math in North Carolina for three years and did a some tutoring before moving to Texas to marry my husband, Ryan, in 2003.
I began working at Sylvan learning center in March of 2003, where I worked with students of all ages and received extensive training in use of manipulatives.  I continued to work with their after school program for several years after becoming certified in 6-12 in TX and beginning a full time Math position at Denton High School in the fall of 2003.  During my 6 years at Denton High, I taught Algebra I, Regular and Pre-AP Algebra II, and Geometry.  I also coached the UIL Math team and ran the UIL program for the Middle Schools.  I also am trained to teach in the Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme for the International Baccalaureate programme.
I began tutoring privately in Texas in 2007 and have tutored students from third grade all the way up to college, including Pre-Cal, Calculus and Statistics.  I started Hope 4 Math tutoring in 2009 so that I would be able to stay home with my son, Grayson, who is three.  I also make and sell all kinds of sewn things in the time I have left.
I’ve been a Christian as long as I can remember and this impacts how I live my life, raise my child, and teach my students.  I was a counselor at a Christian youth camp for three summers.  I was active in Campus Crusade for Christ in College and continue to be active in my church though attending and leading Bible studies, serving in the children’s programs, and assisting with the worship team depending on the season of life.  I am a graduate of the Bible Training for Church Leaders (BTCL) program.  Currently I  serve as a leader in the children’s program for Bible Study Fellowship (BSF).
