With a BS in mathematics and an MA in math education, plus 5 years of teaching experience in NYC public schools, I am well equipped to tutor a student in any high school math course, as well as assist in standardized test preparation. I believe that an emphasis on understanding rather than memorization is key to a student's success in math. I help students build confidence by breaking topics down and slowly increasing the level of difficulty as the student is ready. Everyone can succeed in mathematics, no matter how poorly they may have done with it in the past. It is the greatest joy of teaching to work with a student and help them believe this.
