Bio

Hello,

I have been teaching since 2002 and NEVER wanted to be a teacher, but love it! I have taught all four high school grades and tutored younger students (as well as at an orphanage in Afghanistan). I will tell you upfront, I am NOT a classically trained math teacher. I break math down into common sense, easy to understand pieces (like eating an elephant ... you do it one bite at a time). I have had success with lower performing, self-doubting, and labeled students.

I REQUEST...

Hello,

I have been teaching since 2002 and NEVER wanted to be a teacher, but love it! I have taught all four high school grades and tutored younger students (as well as at an orphanage in Afghanistan). I will tell you upfront, I am NOT a classically trained math teacher. I break math down into common sense, easy to understand pieces (like eating an elephant ... you do it one bite at a time). I have had success with lower performing, self-doubting, and labeled students.

I REQUEST those type of students and enjoy sparking their desire to learn and succeed. I am not your traditional teacher, I have lived and traveled all over the "real world" not just a classroom. I look forward to helping your student (or you) succeed!
