I am a certified math teacher and have nine years of tutoring experience, both privately and for the Burnt Hills Ballston Lake School District. I have worked with students from elementary to college level, and work to create a comfortable student-tutor working relationship which allows for productive learning.

As well as focusing on the mechanics of math, I help students to understand concepts. This is essential in order for them to know when to use which technique. There are a number of repeated 'themes' in math which recur as students progress through math courses, and I bring this to their attention. When similarities are pointed out, this helps to reduce anxiety, allowing the student to focus on learning. In addition, I work with students on reading comprehension of word problems, since this is frequently an area of difficulty. I teach reading and problem solving strategies to help students to break down word problems effectively and be sure to answer the question that was asked. One of my primary goals is to help students feel more confident and capable in both math and testing situations.

The 2014-15 school year is proving to be a very busy one. Therefore, I have limited availability. This year, I can tutor only on Saturdays at the BHBL Community Library.
