This work is a labor of love for me. Being able to team up with you to help your child remove their math barriers and blossom to their full potential, gives me so much joy. When working with me, your child will achieve his/her goals (be it better grades or top scores on tests) and will have a living model of a healthy relationship with math. He/She will know they can succeed through practice, patience, focus, and getting the right help and tools.

Everyday millions of children feel like failures after doing math. Math anxiety negatively impacts their sleep, their school experience, their social integration, and their self-esteem. They may consider themselves "dumb" or "less than" others. As a trained Professional Life Coach, besides being a math Ph.D., I help both students and parents turn this around, so the children can focus on growing into successful adults, instead of on "battling" (and losing) with math.

The way I coach/tutor is heart-based: warm, non-judgmental, sensitive, encouraging, while also keeping the student accountable and on track. I use my creativity to explain concepts and to make sense of them at the level of each student. I also use humor to lighten the "load" and make math fun.

I bring to the table a lot of patience and an extensive background in math - both academically: PhD & teaching at two large universities, as well as in the business arena: leading Research & Development teams in major corporations for many years.

Currently I work mainly with teenagers (middle school and high school), college students, or adults. The subjects I coach most are: prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, SAT, ACT, and all Officer Tests (the math portion of these tests).

I also help with test taking skills and with fun summer math for your child to get a great start in the next school year.

Please ask me for specials on customized math packages.

Career Development

Hi, I'm a career & life coach, a mentor om a site for college students undecided on major, and I have coached people to find their dream job/career or to modify an existing career to suit them better. I have interviewed, hired, and fired people as a manager in a Fortune 500 company. and I developed many professionals to get to the next level. The age group I worked with in terms of career development has been 18 and up. My methods include clarifying the person's career goals for short and long term (type of work, type of environment, etc.), helping them do research on which companies would fit those goals (if they need to change company), making a solid resume, preparing them for interviews (for a new job or for promotions in the same company), and other things.

Great tutor who is very patient! Mihaela has been truly amazing with my daughter. She structures the lessons toward my daughter's learning style and is very patient with her and her speed of learning. We have only been with Mihaela for a short time but so far I am very pleased. I am very optimistic about my daughter's grade and success in math this upcoming school year. ...
