"Do not worry about your problems with mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater." Albert Einstein
I am a mother of three girls with quite of experience working with children of all ages. Currently, I am attending the University of Rhode Island pursuing my lifelong dream to become a math teacher. I have a degree in nursing but my passion is in teaching. Throughout my life, I have excelled in school, especially in math and sciences. I enjoy teaching math to children. I am patient, kind, and creative person, always trying to find the student's strengths in order to help him or her excel academically. Everyone can be good at math. Math doesn't have to be boring and frustrating subject - it could be interesting and stimulating at the same time. In my tutoring sessions I like to use games and hands on activities that help students focus and use their creative thinking, too.
My favorite subjects are pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and elementary functions. I have tutored students in elementary, middle and high school, as well as college students at CCRI. I can also help children with their reading, spelling, writing, and social studies to improve their study skills or just to practice before exams and boost their grades in school. I have organized home-based summer math camps at my house, where my own children and their friends enjoy learning math and keep their skills sharp during the summer break.
I am flexible with my schedule and will work with your schedule. I can follow the school curriculum or offer my own teaching method and practice materials. I have great references and will be glad to hear from you.
I am very passionate about the Environment and living a more sustainable way of life. I took a Natural Resource Conservation class at URI that covered everything - from the basics of Ecology: study of climate change, weather, food chains and food webs, chemical and water cycles- to pollution, sustainable food production, renewable and non-renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, principals of sustainability, economics and the environment, and much more. Anybody who is studying about the environment- elementary, middle, high school and college level - is welcome. I am happy to help with this area of study.
