As a math major at Yale University, I was able to study the subject I love the most! When I began teaching I realized that not everyone shared my enthusiasm about math. Through my 17 years of teaching I have discovered that when students understand math and feel confident, they enjoy it much more.
With that in mind, as I work with a student, I first seek to determine what strengths and weaknesses he or she has, and use those strengths to build understanding of the concepts being studied. I have taught many levels of math, from 6th grade through AP Statistics, and look forward to helping many more students find success in math.
I have deep knowledge of math, and I can help students to understand why a procedure works, without just resorting to "tricks".
I'd love to hear from you to talk about how I can help you, and to set up a time to meet!
