As a professional tutor, my sole focus is on my students' success. I have made tutoring my full-time job because teaching is my passion and helping students succeed is my greatest reward. That passion for teaching will come through in our sessions together! I do not stop working for you at the end of each session. When I am not in front of students, I am setting goals and making plans for subsequent sessions. As a result of this focused effort, my students are constantly learning and improving, achieving top marks in their courses.

My education and experience make me a highly qualified and effective tutor. I have a master's degree in mathematics and undergraduate degrees in science and education. I am a state certified math teacher with 14 years of classroom teaching experience both in Canada and Arizona. In that time, I have taught every math course from pre-algebra to AP Calculus. Throughout my career, I have earned a reputation as an engaging teacher with high ratings from students and parents alike!

In addition to coaching high school students, I have also helped adult students succeed in their statistics and discrete math courses. I also regularly prepare students for the SAT and ACT, providing individualized strategies to help them ace their exams.

My experience isn't limited to the classroom. Over the years, I've also developed standardized exams, created online math courses, and engaged in some really cool professional development workshops from brain-based learning to Common Core training!

I tutor out of my home office as well as at the public library in my community. As a certified online WyzAnt tutor, I also offer online tutoring for students whose circumstances may benefit from this option.

If you are looking for a patient mentor who can give you homework support, help you prepare for exams, explain the "why" and not just the "how", and boost your confidence in math, then do not hesitate to contact me! I look forward to helping you get your math groove back!
