Sandra Brown Bockrath - Founder and Math Tutor
SAT and ACT Test Prep

IMG_6372 edited.JPG
Sandra Bockrath brings over 21 years of professional experience to the tutoring table. Originally from Tampa, Florida, she attended Plant High School, where she first discovered a love for mathematics and my natural teaching ability. She tutored friends and worked closely with the math competition teams as a coach and participant.


Sandra attended Rice University in Houston, Texas to pursue a Bachelors degree in Psychology (with several math and business classes on the side!) and then completed a Masters in Human Resource Management from Houston Baptist University. While living in Houston, she spent three years working at Advantage Testing of Houston, Inc., where she received professional training on the best practices of private tutoring.  Advantage Testing gave Sandra a solid understanding of the structure, test strategies, and subject matter covered on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT.  She has now been teaching students how to approach these exams and reach their score goals for nearly 21 years! Sandra had a "perfect score" (800) on the math section of the SAT, and she has helped several of her students achieve this as well!  


In 2007, Sandra founded Blue Owl Tutoring in her home town of Tampa, Florida.  She has since moved all over the country due to her husband's job with the Air Force, and has had the pleasure of working with students during all of their assignments in California, Delaware, North Carolina, and now on ZOOM anywhere!! Sandra has a lot of confidence in her teaching ability, and loves to help her students realize their own potential while building academic confidence and their knowledge of mathematics.

Philosophy and Mission

At Blue Owl Tutoring, our teaching philosophy is pretty straightforward: Every student can be GOOD at math! There are multiple ways to explain things and we will bring an abundance of patience to the table when trying to help our students understand their coursework.  

We want our students eliminate the phrase "I can't do this" from their vocabulary.

Tutoring sessions should be productive (and fun!) and students should always walk away from a tutoring session feeling like they accomplished something and with a greater sense of confidence!
