About Blythe

I completed my Master of Arts in Teaching degree in Mathematics Education from Boston University in 2010. I have Massachusetts licensure to teach middle and high school mathematics, and I am currently employed teaching Geometry, and Precalculus on the North Shore. I've been tutoring and teaching (mostly math) for the last ten years, and I feel my teaching experience helps me be a better tutor, while my tutoring experiences help me be a better teacher - it's a win-win situation for everyone!

Having witnessed “learned helplessness” and math phobias, both in school settings and beyond, I strive to help students to develop positive attitudes regarding mathematics. Mathematics is a stepping stone, not just a frustrating high school class. I use my energy and enthusiasm to promote positivity and active learning, helping all students access the mathematics curriculum. I truly believe all students can and will succeed in mathematics, learning skills which will help them in their everyday lives and open doors to additional career possibilities. My former students have said that I have helped them both increase their grades and their interest/enjoyment in Mathematics, and I hope to help you or your son/daughter to do the same!
