I am an experienced, flexible and friendly tutor who has worked with students in 2nd-12th grade in a range of subjects including study skills and memory techniques. I have worked as a full-time teacher at several grade levels in both public and private schools in the Boston area and now teach 8th grade math in Western Mass. I hold a Master's degree in teaching and have earned MA state professional certification in elementary education, special education, middle school math, and middle and high school history. I've also worked as an educational consultant for the National Scrabble Association for 15 years. My experience includes working successfully and with innovation as a tutor and classroom teacher with students with ADHD, Autism spectrum, Asperger's, dyscalculia and other learning challenges.

I teach in a relaxed, fun manner and aim to understand and meet the current emotional and cognitive needs of each student I see. In general, I believe that patience is always the greatest gift we can give children.

I currently teach 8th grade mathematics.
