Hello out there! I am a supportive, personable, experienced Math educator with more than 30 years of experience working with all levels of Math students - from children to adults. I have worked with students in elementary, middle school, junior high school, high school and college/university. I have helped family and friends with their Math struggles for as long as I can remember!

I was an Honor Student in High School, and later earned my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education at Brooklyn College (City University of New York). From there I went on to work as a High School Mathematics Teacher while earning my Masters Degree in Mathematics Education (with High Honors.) I even worked several years developing/supporting beginning teachers with how to teach Mathematics (and other subjects)! In addition,I also have several years of experience teaching students at the college level.

My teaching style has been described as "fun, engaging, and supportive." I am here to make YOU feel more relaxed and confident with the Math subjects that you face.

Thank you for reading this little introduction!
