Hi there! I am a high school teacher who loves working with a diverse range of students. During the school year, I teach Algebra and Environmental Science at a public charter school in Brooklyn. During the summer, I enjoy providing ongoing support to students who want to sharpen their skills. In addition to teaching high school math and science, I have a lot of experience teaching middle school math topics and reading skills like decoding and comprehension.
I think that it is really important to get at the heart of a topic when I teach - I love helping students understand the "why." This becomes especially handy in teaching math - I believe that a lot of the struggle that students experience in learning math comes from not having a clear idea of which steps they need to take to solve a problem, or why those steps are important in the first place! When you work with me, you learn the steps and the reasons behind them. You build a stronger foundation that (hopefully!) leads you to become a curious and independent problem-solver!
