I have a bachelors of science in mathematics as well as a masters of arts in special education. My training is focused on capitalizing on the student's success by assessing the student's strengths and weaknesses. I then apply multi-sensory techniques to help the student understand the material.

I have over twenty years experience tutoring elementary students, high school students as well as college students.I have been very successful tutoring students of all ages. This includes very week to gifted elementary school children through college level. I enjoy teaching math. My students say that I have a lot of patience with them and I teach the material in a clear way. I also know how to prepare a student for an exam so that they can experience success.
