I am a certified middle school math teacher with experience teaching Math in grades 4 - 8. I also have experience with both the Connected Math and Singapore Math programs. Furthermore, I have tutored high school students in Algebra and SAT prep.

My educational background is in Economics. I have a degree in Economics and a Master's degree in Business Economics. I received my teaching certification from the College of Saint Elizabeth and I have been teaching Middle School Math for the past 6 years.

I am a friendly and positive person. I have three grown children of my own so I understand the student needs both from a teacher's and a parent's perspective. As a teacher and a tutor, it is essential that I establish a secure and comfortable relationship with my students so that they feel confident and not afraid to ask questions. I also ask my students many questions. I ask them to explain their process, how they solved a problem or arrived at their answer. In this way, I can better help and guide them in their learning and give them the tools they need to succeed in math. My ultimate goal is to help my students feel confident in math.

I am available to tutor your child from 5pm until 10pm any weeknight. I can also tutor some Saturdays and Sundays.
