I have been tutoring students who have difficulty with math since I realized that I could explain math concepts in study groups when I was an undergraduate. I have helped many adults with learning disabilities get through the required math courses for their degree, despite a fear of math, or test anxiety. I also tutor children in basic math up to college level algebra.

I am currently working on my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. In my capacity as a counselor, I work with children in the school system. I am very patient and encouraging in both of my roles as counselor and tutor.
