As a parent of 4 children ages 8 - 18, I enjoy working with students of all ages in Math, SAT/ACT test prep, accounting, and computer science/applications. I am an experienced and certified math teacher for grades 5-12, and recently left the full-time classroom to provide one-on-one instruction to local students. I am hired by the local school system, and also hired privately. In addition, I work part time in a RI school, so I remain certified and must have background checks completed to maintain employment. My specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style and needs of the student, but as an active teacher and tutor, I am very familiar with the typical struggles students experience and can identify problem areas quickly. I usually meet with students at a local library or can arrange for a more convenient location...I am flexible :)
