I have been a Middle School Math Teacher in Chicago for 19 years. When I graduated school in 1990 from St. Rita High School, I was awarded the Golden Apple Scholar and have worked with the Golden Apple Foundation since then. I have spent my 19 years in education trying to perfect what the ideal math classroom looks like and how learning takes place.
I have been trained in Common Core Mathematics Standards for the last 3 years, also training other teachers in the Chicago area. There is a shift in how math should be taught in the classroom to students so they are prepared for the rigorous tasks they will take on. The new PARCC test that is being taken by most students will contain these rigorous tasks. Students need to be prepared and I can help with that. It can take place individually or in small groups of 3 to 4 students.
My goal is to not only educate your child so that they may be able to handle the tougher work in math, but also help the parents understand what should be taking place in your child's classroom and the right questions to ask your child's teachers.
I am an open book. If you are interested in my tutoring services, please ask any questions. I will gladly share my knowledge and make sure I am the right fit to help your child.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a middle school math endorsement that can be verified at ISBE. I have also spent the last three years in CCMS training with Chicago Public Schools Math Department. I am also the math lead in my school as well as the Math Facilitator with Network 12 in CPS.
With all this, I work closely on my schools Instructional Leadership team which works closely with all teachers in grades pre-k through 8th.
