I have taught mathematics from middle school through community college, and have been an educator in math and philosophy
for 10 years. I see my previous students from time to time, and they are always eager to tell me how much they appreciated my teaching.
I am very patient, and able to diagnose quickly the difficulties students have with math. We will work together very diligently to improve your understanding and skills, so that you will achieve mastery in your subject. I will tailor our tutoring sessions to fit your needs, and provide supplemental material to help your understanding and hone your skills.
I am a fully (BEST) certified professional math teacher in Connecticut. I have taught middle and high school mathematics for four years in Fairfield and Waterbury. I have also privately tutored high school geometry
, as well as dozens of 6th, 7th and 8th graders in small groups at Roger Ludlowe Middle School in Fairfield, CT.
My kids at RLMS significantly improved in their problem areas of the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT), and my efforts were recognized and appreciated by the school principal.
I was the Math Team advisor at Tomlinson Middle School in Fairfield. My kids practiced diligently during our after school sessions, placed second at the local math competition and advanced to the state competition in 2008.
I earned my:
B.S. Aerospace Engineering (GPA 3.2), University of Texas at Austin, 1991
B.A. in Humanities (Cum Laude, GPA 3.9) University of Houston, 2000
M.A. in Philosophy (GPA 3.6) Fordham University, 2004
Presently, I work full time as an aerospace engineer. I am available to tutor in the evenings and on weekends.
I look forward to helping you achieve success in math, which will give you renewed confidence in all of your subjects and academic goals.
