I am a certified middle and high school math teacher with a master's in education from Harvard and a CAGS from Boston University. I have undergraduate degrees in math and oceanography. I am an extremely qualified tutor. I currently teach 5th grade, but I have experience teaching and tutoring 5th grade through adults.
My philosophy is that everyone can learn. I spent each of my first five years in education teaching at least one section of a low track freshman algebra class. Some of these students had failed algebra before, but all of them had learned that they cannot learn math. I could not disagree more. One student said to me, "Ms. J., I have never had anyone teach math so that I could understand it before." As always, the student provided a keen insight into his experience. It wasn't that he couldn't learn, or worse, that he did not want to learn math. Conversely, he and his classmates had not been taught in a way that they could understand. I believe that all students can learn. If they haven't yet, it is because we haven't figured out the way that they can access the content.

The new ways elementary math is taught can be mystifying to parents. I am proficient at both the traditional methods as well as the current Common Core based methods. Let's become a master together!
