I am a certified math teacher, experienced tutor, and home-schooling mother of three, who loves children and whose greatest joy is working one-on-one with people to help them realize their full potential. I have a BA (magna cum laude) in elementary education, and 13 years of teaching public school math, tutoring mostly middle and high school students, and teaching my own three children. I've been told that I am patient, creative and good at explaining concepts. Other teaching-related jobs I've had include substitute teaching (many ages and subjects), Sunday school teaching, therapy for a boy with autism, and helping with vacation Bible clubs both in the U.S. and the U.K.
I am new to the Washington, D.C. area, having previously lived in California, Nigeria, Illinois, Great Britain, and Jordan. I have appreciated all the states and countries that have hosted me, and I continue to enjoy meeting people from all over the world. That's one of the aspects of metro D.C. that I value the most! Other interests of mine (besides math, teaching and travel) include music (especially choral singing), reading (aloud to my family and by myself), spending time outside on walks or playing Frisbee, and visiting my far-flung family.
I do all tutoring sessions in my own home, and look forward to meeting your student.
