There is always more than one way to solve a math problem! As a former math teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Stanford and a Master's degree in Teaching from American, I know that there are infinite ways to approach math problems. I also know that exploring many methods is the best way to build conceptual understanding of math.

In many math classrooms today, teachers show their students one way to solve a problem, and then the students simply mimic a series of steps. This approach does not promote conceptual understanding! Students need to be able to think critically and creatively when they face a new problem. They need to be challenged with rich problems, while being provided with the tools to tackle those problems with creativity and confidence.

With several years of experience teaching math and tutoring, I know how to help students build both their conceptual understanding of mathematics and their confidence in problem solving. Most of my experience both tutoring and teaching in the classroom was with high school or middle school subjects; however, I can also tutor in more advanced subjects like Calculus, Linear Algebra, etc., as I studied math in college. Whatever the course, I will not just teach you more than one way; I will push you to discover many of your own!

And now that our daughter brought home her first A+ on her Trig/PC progress report--attention has shifted to preparing for the upcoming SATs.
