About April

I have been tutoring for over ten years and have been teaching math classes at SAT prep schools for 4 years. Beginning in August, I will also teaching middle school math in a public school. I firmly believe that every student is capable of succeeding, given the proper tools to scaffold their personal learning modality! I think that students need to understand the "whys" before they learn the "how-to's" in math. If a student truly understands the reasons why formulas work the way they do, then rote memorization is not necessary.

I have extensive tutoring and teaching experience in algebra and geometry, both at the private and public school levels.

I look forward to working with your child and helping him/her to gain the confidence needed to be a successful mathematician! Remember, EVERY child is capable of learning, as long as they are equipped with the proper tools.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

Currently implementing common core curriculum for math and science as a teacher in a public school. I am part of the curriculum planning team for middle school math and am a lead scorer in a common-core exam via SVMI for grade 6 in my district.

Study Skills

I have been a private tutor for over 10 years and have taught numerous classes at private institutions over the past several summers. I am also a middle school teacher in a public school district, for which I teach math, science, and two periods of study skills/college readiness as elective classes. I am also head of the Student Council for my school.
