I have a liberal arts education from a prestigious university, and my interests and capabilities are diverse. Although my undergraduate major was physics
, my minor area of concentration was English
- I could not face all of those lab courses without dedicated time to read and write!
Some describe me as a 'perpetual student'. I have taken courses throughout my life that I found interesting, heedless of their practical application to an advanced degree or to my career. In short - I love learning! I have a passion for teaching, and I believe the two go hand-in-glove.
I have had a successful career in applied physics, software development, and system analysis. Effective communication skills - reading
comprehension and writing
- were integral
to my success, and I have co-authored papers published in technical journals.
I transitioned from technology to education three years ago, and I am thrilled to work with students daily.
While I am qualified in many areas, I have a particular interest in science
. I want to share my enthusiasm for these subjects by helping students grasp both the fundamentals and the reasons they are exciting for our future.
I am certified to teach mathematics in MA, and I expect to complete my Master of Education degree in special education for students with emotional disorders in August 2015. I have two years experience teaching high school mathematics for at-risk and proven-risk young people.
As your tutor, I will commit to reviewing your individual circumstances and preparing lessons or exercises as appropriate for specific areas of focus. If appropriate, I will contact your teachers for their assessments and advice. I will come to every session thoroughly prepared to maximize our time together.
The rate quoted is adjustable based upon individual or family circumstances. I firmly believe that education should be accessible to everyone, without regard to their financial means. I live in the greater Lowell area. We can hold our tutoring sessions either at the Lowell Public Library or at your home.
Thank you for your consideration, and I am looking forward to meeting you.
