I have a Master's degree from Lesley College and a State of Maine teacher endorsement. I am a professionally certified, nationally rated highly qualified instructor with 40 years of teaching experience at every grade level. I have a deep passion for learning and employ what I consider the optimal format ("Three E Method"): Explore, Experience and Enjoy. I believe that persistence overcomes resistance and practice makes permanent.

I taught Algebra when I became board of the Elementary curriculum. In addition, I have taught this subject at the middle school, high school and post-graduate levels for many decades. In the course of teaching to many different developmental levels, grade levels, abilities and disabilities, I have come to understand how to effectively and efficiently connect to students regardless of their learning styles, abilities or lack there of and still achieve the success or goal established.

If interested in how I may be of assistance in facilitating your needs, please contact me directly.
