I am a Massachusetts licensed teacher and I have taught Math & Computer Science for the past 16 years working in the Sudbury and Newton public school districts. I have taught all levels of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus and AP Calculus AB & BC as well as AP Computer Science. Preparing for the SSAT, SAT, ACT or GRE can be very stressful. Not only can I help you learn the math, I can also give you strategies tailored to your strengths and weaknesses that will help you improve your score on the exam.
I love working with students at all levels of ability and/or special educational needs. What I love most about teaching is finding the missing links in a student's mathematical background and building mathematical skills and confidence. I also find that the use of technology enhances learning. In a previous life (before kids) I was a software engineer and I love tinkering around with technology. I am very experienced with graphing calculators Ti-84, Ti-89 and Ti-Nspire and I use Skype for lessons when weather makes a face to face lesson impossible.
I have raised three children of my own and am very sympathetic to students' and parents' busy schedules and individual needs. One of my sons was very ill one year in high school. When he was falling behind in Precalculus, I hired a tutor for him. Watching him work with the tutor as he blossomed and succeeded was very moving. My goal is to be an inspiration for you as well!
I know that it is hard to call a stranger on the phone or via internet to get help for yourself or child. Please feel free to email me so that we can set up an interview.
I wish you success in your studies!
