Hello, Do you find mathematics challenging? Exhilarating? Frustrating? My name is Jody and while I have often grasped mathematical material easily, I have struggled with it at times as well. Understanding the joys and struggles of mathematics is what motivated me to become a mathematics teacher. I recognize that it is a difficult subject for many people and want to help them to appreciate the beauty and simplicity behind the struggle. I was fortunate to spend the majority of my career at a college preparatory independent school where we had some flexibility with our curriculum. There my experiences both learning and teaching mathematics inspired me to create curriculum and processes that help students reach their personal goals. During the 25 years that I taught in both the public and private school settings one thing stood out as particularly frustrating to both students and teachers. That was the gap between the student’s current mastery level of a given subject and the starting point of new curriculum, which is frequently most evident at the beginning of a new school year. To address the need to close the gap between 8th grade mathematics and Algebra I, I created a geometry curriculum that infused and strengthened prealgebra skills. After witnessing students thrive with these new learning experiences, I also created a bridge course called Functions and Differential Calculus to assist students with their transition to college mathematics. Additionally, I have experience providing support to students who need things like clarification on a single process, confidence boosts, and getting over school year slumps. Most students struggle at one time or another. I have found it best to meet each challenge and move forward with revived energy.

I have experience both teaching and tutoring everything from 5th grade mathematics to AP Calculus and have a degree in mathematics. I can create my own lessons or provide support and review of another curriculum. I offer virtual and face-to-face learning opportunities. Face-t
