I believe that the biggest hurdle to overcome with most struggling students is a fear of failure. Let me help your child to build the confidence they need to be successful.
I'm an Australian high school mathematics and science teacher, with seven years experience, who has recently moved to the bay area because my husband found employment here. I'm an enthusiastic teacher, who loves helping students to succeed to the best of their ability, and loves all facets of mathematics and physics.
I will teach all levels from middle school mathematics up to calculus. I have extensive experience teaching international baccalaureate mathematics.
I'm flexible in my teaching style, and will work with parents, schools and students to determine the format of tutoring most likely to bring them success. In all cases, however, I emphasise risk taking, self-sufficency and critical thinking when approaching problems. My aim is to help students to become independent learners who eventually won't need my help. I strongly emphasise the need to work on homework and review outside of tutoring time.
I'm looking forward to helping you or your child to be a more successful mathematician or scientist!
