I specialize in tutoring middle school math including algebra to all types of learning styles. I have a master's degree in special education, and I am highly qualified to teach math. My classroom typically looks like a group of students working at their own pace and being challenged at different levels.

I am especially successful at getting through to students with low self confidence in math and breaking things down into smaller, more obtainable steps that are easily understood. I engage different teaching techniques and try to spark the interest of all learners.
