I have a degree in Math and Physics from the University of Waterloo in Canada. I moved to California 7 years ago, but I have been tutoring for 12 years and I have taught almost every course from 7th grade Math to Calculus over the past 9 years in Canada and the United States. I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to focus on one person at a time and most people just need that extra attention to excel. I have had great results with all of my clients and I have a good sense of humor, so the time we spend together will not be boring. I have often been told that I'm good at thinking on my feet, and I use that skill to find a different approach to a certain topic, if the way that I am explaining something does not work for you. One thing I always practice in my classroom is starting from a level where the students can understand, and moving forward from there. I believe that building a good foundation is the key to success in any subject. I have come up with many different tricks for helping students remember key ideas in math and the biggest compliment I received was when one client told me she was showing her class my "wedding cake" trick (one that I use for factoring) because they were all coming to her for help.
I am not someone who backs out of commitments and I have pursued my hobbies for years. I have been playing baseball since I was 8 and it is still something I make time for every week. There is nothing I love more than being out in this beautiful southern California weather and being part of a team.
I look forward to working with you and helping you build your confidence in your chosen subject area : )
