My love for tutoring Math drew me into education over 12 years ago. I began as a College Algebra tutor my sophomore year in college. Throughout my undergraduate years, I worked as a peer tutor and during the summers, I tutored high school students in a Pre-College Program. After graduation, I continued tutoring throughout my Masters Program for Elementary Education. During the school year, I tutored students in the Academic Support Program and tutoring incoming freshmen during the Summer Bridge Program.

I was a classroom teacher for 8 years, teaching grades 4th - 8th. I have experience teaching all subjects, including Algebra 1. My favorite subject to tutor and teach has always been Math, with Algebra holding a special place in my heart. I have an exceptional command of the subject and I have a good time when teaching. I use rhymes, songs, manipulatives, analogies, movement, and my enthusiasm to help students understand the material.

My philosophy has been, "If you can count, you can do Math." I believe that it is the one subject where every person can excel. It just takes hard work, confidence, and a little help from me!
