Hello! Thank you for taking time to view my tutoring profile. I am a stay-at-home wife and mother of two with more than 10 years of tutoring and instructional experience. I have NYS teaching certification in two areas: secondary math instruction and instruction for working with students with disabilities. Both my BA and MSEd degrees are in math education, and they have provided me with many opportunities to work as a teacher in middle school and high school classroom environments. Now, I work as a math tutor for students who experience difficulty understanding math as it applies to math classes and related fields (i.e.- understanding how to apply algebra skills in a career in landscaping).
My professional experiences have prepared me to instruct a wide variety of individuals. While working as a New York State certified substitute math teacher and as an academic coach at Encompass Resources in Rochester, NY, I have often worked with students who find math to be challenging, including students with learning disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, and other disabilities that can impair learning. As I was earning my degrees, I worked as a math tutor for other college students who were having difficulty understanding the math required for them to be successful in one or more of their college classes. During this time, I also served as the instructor of a math review class for adult learners preparing to take their New York State pesticide licensing exam. My most recent tutoring experiences have come through the operation of my own private tutoring company, PS Tutoring.
From my experiences working with students of all ages, I have come to believe that anyone is able to learn and use math. Even students who struggle with math can achieve success in it through guided practice, persistence, and frequent evaluation of progress. My objective as a tutor is to provide students with the extra academic support and guidance that they need to achieve their math goals and the skills they need to apply that math in their chosen field.
I genuinely enjoy teaching math, and I look forward to the opportunity to share my passion for math with you or your child. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to set up a face-to-face meeting to talk about your questions in person.
