Believe it or not, I make math fun! I know, that is a stretch, but if you hire me, you'll see. I carry this attitude with any subject I teach, even algebra and geometry! Education should be fun and I can always get some smiles and laughs out of my students! I also truly believe every student is smart and gifted, it just takes the right educator to help them see and believe it themselves.
I am a licensed mathematics teacher with a Master's in Education. I have five years of experience tutoring students of all ages through a variety of schools and private homes. Most recently I tutor students with special needs at Western Connecticut State University as their Math Specialist!
Through WyzAnt and other tutoring advertising over the past two years I have helped over 50 students reach amazing heights. One of my students earned a score of 2150 on his SAT, and another aced her geometry final when A's on tests had previously eluded her. A student who normally earns D's and C's on tests started earned B's and A's, and a student aiming for the nursing college program aced her placement exam and thus tested out of several college math courses. There are tons more stories I have to share, just ask!
Three years ago — as an AmeriCorps member and director of tutors at a high school in Massachusetts — I tutored over 100 students for more than 1,000 hours of tutoring. Before that, I educated students in many places including Westfield State University, at local high schools, and during the summers with Upward Bound.
During my teaching experience, I learned that while I may have a gift at teaching in the traditional classroom setting, I did not feel like classroom teaching was for me. I decided I would much rather continue educating in a much smaller setting through tutoring. I truly believe education is at its finest when done in such a setting. My desire to help students who were at risk of being left behind carried me on and motivated me to search for a more alternative way to follow my dream in an education career, and this is it!
Know this — all of my students at the very least find more confidence working with me and will earn at least one letter grade higher if they work hard as instructed!
I am always willing to be flexible with scheduling to suit the needs of my clients. I am also responsive to any budgetary concerns.
My summer availability:
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays!
