I believe that the education of today's youth is one of the most important aspects of our country today and for the future. I have enjoyed every part of my educational experiences, even with the struggles, and I would like to help students in every way possible to enjoy theirs too. I work well with students of all levels and ages, and I enjoy the challenges and the rewards. My rewards include helping the students set and reach their own goals.

My philosophy of education is that every student can and will be able to learn math, at any level. With extra care and attention, I can assist them with a variety of teaching methods and learning styles of the challenging math skills. I love to watch my students' eyes open when they finally learn a difficult concept. Their smiles are big rewards for me. With a solid mathematics education and a B.A. in Math from St. Olaf College, I have been teaching and tutoring students in math since 1984. I enjoy teaching those who learn quickly, however it is also interesting and challenging to help the students who struggle a bit to improve their grades and achieve their goals.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you to help ease your struggles and/or fears.

Dyslexia

I have had rewarding previous experiences teaching students who have dyslexia and other special needs. I taught at Colton Middle School in Monterey for 5 years as a Resource Special Education teacher. After some initial struggles, the students began to learn very well with my help and much individual attention.

General Music

I have gone through all of the music levels in the California Music Teacher's Association. I have taught piano lessons for 10 years. I have sung in choirs since I was 8 years old.
