Bio

After being in a classroom setting for 10 years, I am currently staying home with my two daughters. My first two years teaching were in the middle school setting teaching 6th and 7th grade math. After that I moved to a new state and began teaching at a private school. There I taught everything from 2nd grade math to Algebra 1. I had multiple one on one or two on one teaching experiences at this school. Throughout my time in the classroom I have also been a private tutor. I spent the last...

After being in a classroom setting for 10 years, I am currently staying home with my two daughters. My first two years teaching were in the middle school setting teaching 6th and 7th grade math. After that I moved to a new state and began teaching at a private school. There I taught everything from 2nd grade math to Algebra 1. I had multiple one on one or two on one teaching experiences at this school. Throughout my time in the classroom I have also been a private tutor. I spent the last three years working privately for a family as a tutor for their 3 daughters ranging from 4th grade to sophomore in high school.

I have completed Bachelor's degree with a double major in Elementary Education and Mathematics. I then went on to complete a Master's degree in Education. I love teaching and helping students learn and succeed. I really enjoy when a student feels confident in his or her skills at the end of a session. I believe everyone is capable given the right tools. My approach to tutoring is different with every student depending on the needs of that child. Some students may need to be taught the material from scratch while others just need more practice to help them feel confident.

I challenge myself to be able to explain math to students in a way that makes sense to them. When students struggle with understanding what is going on in class, I see it as my job to help them process that information in a new way. This could mean reteaching the material step by step or using different tools, such as games, books, flashcards, etc.

Not only have I worked at a private school, but I have helped to prepare countless students for the ISEE tests. I am familiar with what is expected on each level of the test. I also know that it is important for a student to feel prepared and confident for this exam. By doing just a few review sessions and becoming familiar with the testing structure a student can improve their score. For example, by knowing whether it is better to skip a question or to take a guess a student's score can be improved.

Please contact me for summer or school year tutoring, with help in math or getting ready to take the ISEE. I am happy to come to your home and work with your schedule. I look forward to helping!
