About Hope

I love teaching. My main approach is to work with what you currently understand about math and use that as a foundation to build upon as you learn more, develop confidence and come to enjoy math. I believe in making math as concrete and relevant to your life as possible and only after understanding do we move towards the pictoral and then concrete/abstract math. We will use a lot of manipulatives and games so math becomes understandable and enjoyable.

With regard to reading, I teach numerous skills to improve concentration, interest, comprehension, retention and speed. This is appropriate for any age and greatly enhances the reading experience. Students are encouraged to bring a variety of reading materials to class so that they get practice using the skills in a variety of settings.

I have been tutoring elementary math since 2002. I understand the math curriculum, its pacing and goals k-5. I thus know where each student is expected to be in any given grade.

I taught a course on effective reading and study skills to high school and college students. Some colleges I taught at include: Colgate University, College of the Holy Cross, Skidmore College, University of Jacksonville, and many others.

I look forward to working with you. I realize it is the summer but we will make it fun and insure that you do not experience the "summer slide..."

Approved subjects

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.

Study Skills

Previously I was an instructor for Baldridge Reading and Study Skills out of Greenwich, CT. I taught mostly at the college level, including Colgate University, Skidmore College, College of the Holy Cross, and many others. I taught skills that enable students to read with better concentration, interest, comprehension, retention and speed.
