About Colleen

I have experience bringing passion for math to a wide range of ages and readiness levels. I have a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Masters in Education from UMass Amherst. I hold my Initial License in Elementary Education as well as in Middle School Math. I have also passed the licensure test for the High School Math License.
While in my Masters program at UMass Amherst, I student taught in 4th grade part time and then 1st grade full time. After graduating from UMass Amherst with my Masters, I found a job in Westford as a Math Resource Facilitator. This gave me experience in classrooms from 3rd-5th grade with many different teachers, exposing me to different styles and classroom environments. I had a small caseload of students for whom I would provide in-class support. I would also run small groups in the classroom as needed. After my year in Westford, I accepted a job at the Lowell Community Charter Public School teaching 7th grade math. I taught to a wide variety of readiness levels and got the opportunity to push myself to implement many different teaching strategies in order to continuously engage the students. For the past few years, I have taught a math class for students preparing to take their high school equivalency test. I am currently working as a Math Interventionist in Westford for grades 1-2.
I look forward to every new experience with teaching math, whether tutoring or teaching. I love learning from my students and always improving upon my ability to reach every student in their own way.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of my favorite areas of math. It is the foundation for almost all upper level math, and therefore very important to get a strong foundation in.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Masters degree was focused on Elementary Education, and I did my student teaching in a 1st grade and 4th grade classroom. I have tutoring experience with all elementary grades.
