About Simone

I learned that I loved to do Math in grade school, St Louis School, where I graduated Valedictorian. I know loving to do Math made achieving in it fun for me, but it also helped me to see that it wasn't fun for all. Seeking to turn that around, or at least see self-confidence due to succeeding in a difficult task, has been a driving force for me since I began teaching. My personal SAT Math scores were in the 700's.

I am certified in CT to teach Math. I have spent 26 years teaching grades 7-12 in both private and public schools, in Bridgeport and New Haven school systems. My approach involves demonstration accompanying explanation, carefully attending to student understanding at each step. My undergraduate degree in Psychology is of value to me in this regard. I will address the student's area of concern, always including word problems to increase understanding and provide practicality.
I have helped many students move forward in Math, and have helped others to feel good about their achievements in Math, specifically problem-solving.

I will create a quiet and comfortable study space, most often at Miller Memorial Library, or another agreed upon location.
I have a 24-hr cancellation policy, and am flexible about make-up mutually agreeable classes.
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you to discover that the work required can become fun.
