Bio

I am a certified math teacher with over 20 years of experience in the traditional classroom setting, with most of that being overseas, working in an American school with an international student body. During those 20 years, I have taught everything from pre-algebra to AP Calculus. My strengths are in clarity of explanation and in helping students to troubleshoot in areas that often trip them up.

I am a certified math teacher with over 20 years of experience in the traditional classroom setting, with most of that being overseas, working in an American school with an international student body. During those 20 years, I have taught everything from pre-algebra to AP Calculus. My strengths are in clarity of explanation and in helping students to troubleshoot in areas that often trip them up. In addition to classroom teaching, I have done a fair amount of 1-on-1 private tutoring with homeschooling families here in the states and have gained exposure to a variety of curriculum and instructional resources.

I love working in the classroom, but I also thoroughly enjoy the one-on-one interaction that takes place with tutoring. I welcome questions from my students, not only because it helps me to understand where they are having issues with the material, but it also helps them to engage in their own academic progress. It gives them a voice with me as their teacher/tutor, and it makes the process of tutoring more of a "we" effort than a "me" effort.

I enjoy what I do and I love explaining math concepts to students and seeing the "lightbulb" go on. I am patient with my students, seeking to encourage them in any ways that I can, but I am also firm with them in that I do make them work. As one who stands behind the idea that what is learned through self effort and self initiative will stick with a student far better than that which is simply handed to them by their teacher, I desire to encourage learning strategies that my students will "own", thus helping them to become lifelong learners.

If you are need of help and desire to master this "language" called Mathematics, I would love to come along side and support you in this endeavor. If you have questions about my experience, training, background, etc., feel free to contact me and, if you are comfortable with letting me step in to help you out, I would welcome the opportunity!

I have taught Algebra for many years in the traditional classroom setting as well as in private tutoring sessions, mainly with homeschooling families. This has given me opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of curricula. One of my strengths is clear communication and explanation of the material. I am patient and, if a student struggles with a particular concept, I look for various ways to explain the concept until it makes sense to the student. I am certified by the state of Maine for secondary mathematics education, grades 7-12.
