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.)
