Hi! I'm a former high school math teacher with a little over five years of tutoring experience. I've tutored students from grades K-12 in subjects including basic math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Trigonometry. What sets me apart from many tutors is the fact that I actually love math and I can explain concepts in multiple ways to maximize understanding. Also, I like to keep my explanations as simple as possible. Topics like Algebra can be confusing enough...you don't need a teacher or tutor making it harder than it needs to be! I also ran a volunteer SAT tutoring program recently using Kaplan materials so I have a solid understanding of strategies for the test that can help boost your score.

If you'd like further information about my qualifications, experience, or tutoring methods please ask. I look forward to working with you!
