I graduated with honors from SDSU with a BS degree in Finance. But my love of children, my own and others, has led me in a different direction. I have been tutoring elementary math through Algebra II/Trig since 2000. I have helped more than 50 students succeed with their math goals. Some came for short-term assistance, while I worked with others for all their high school graduation and/or college entrance requirements. Teaching is my first love.

For the past five years, I have been a teacher's aide in Special Ed at a high school. Here I meet with different challenges, but helping children overcome their learning challenges is extremely satisfying. I have very strong interpersonal skills and enjoy working with people of all types.

I look forward to assisting your student in reaching their goals.
