I am an intelligent, fun-loving, enthusiastic former college instructor who loves learning and helping others learn. I can help make mind-boggling subjects more manageable and maybe even fun.

After completing a Master's degree in economics, I taught both math and economics at community college and university, followed by several years of tutoring. While teaching Algebra 1, I excelled at helping students who had always struggled with math gain confidence and begin to enjoy the class. I received some of the highest evaluations the school had ever seen.

My Montessori training and work with my own children (1st and 4th grade) has uniquely prepared me to help elementary students in math and language. The Montessori method of using concrete materials to build a foundation for abstract ideas is ideally suited for children struggling with reading or math concepts. I have a "classroom" in my garage filled with materials designed specifically for helping children lean elementary math skills.

I am interested in working with homeschooling families and college students seeking daytime tutoring sessions. I have several daytime openings and am offering a 25% discount for sessions scheduled weekdays between 10:00am and 3:00pm
