I love to help students understand mathematics! I graduated with honors from Regis University, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I am currently licensed to teach secondary math and my experience teaching high school math has given me insight into the overall curriculum progression. I have taught every high school math course from algebra 1 to AP calculus BC. This unique experience has helped me understand how each course builds into the next. As a teacher, I enjoyed creating engaging lesson plans that were fun and incorporated real world examples. As a student, I found math to be rather challenging and it never came easy to me. With support from my teachers in high school and professors in college, I was able to gain confidence and grow my understanding and appreciation of mathematics.

I believe that the struggles I overcame as a student provide me with a level of understanding towards students that are learning math. When working with students one-on-one, my goal is to help them gain confidence. Without confidence, it is easy for math to feel overwhelming and want to give up. To build confidence, I like to focus on what a student already knows and use that background knowledge to explain a new concept. My experience has given me the ability to explain concepts in different ways, rather than just one. Over the years, my students have taught me different tricks and methods that they like to use to solve different problems.

Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry/Precalculus, ACT/SAT math prep, AP Calculus AB/BC, and AP Statistics.

Whether your student needs support with a high school math class or with standardized test prep, like SAT, ACT, or AP calculus/statistics, I am more than willing to help. I look forward to getting to know and help your student tackle the challenges of and gain confidence in the field of mathematics!
