I am a licensed teacher and an experienced tutor who has worked with high school students for many years.

I help with math - Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Statistics. I am comfortable with Standard, Honors, and AP curricula. In addition to private tutoring, I have taught summer courses, provided tutoring in Pilot schools, assisted in classrooms, and run test preparation classes (MCAS and SAT).

Students tell me I'm awesome; parents tell me that I am easy to work with. My style is easy-going; my expectations are realistic; my results are always valued. I especially enjoy demonstrating that mathematics can be understood, satisfying and pleasant.

I am happy to provide references - both from parents and students.
