Bio

Hello! I am a highly experienced tutor in math and history who has worked in the past with private clients and through a well-regarded agency in Durham, NC. As a tutor, I live for the moments when things ‘click’ for students.

For the past seven years, I have worked primarily as a tutor for high school math (Algebra, Geometry, Math 1 and 2) and standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GRE, LSAT). I also have a PhD in History from the University of North Carolina, am a grader for the AP US History...

Hello! I am a highly experienced tutor in math and history who has worked in the past with private clients and through a well-regarded agency in Durham, NC. As a tutor, I live for the moments when things ‘click’ for students.

For the past seven years, I have worked primarily as a tutor for high school math (Algebra, Geometry, Math 1 and 2) and standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GRE, LSAT). I also have a PhD in History from the University of North Carolina, am a grader for the AP US History exam, and have worked with high school and college students on content and essay writing.

With students who are really struggling in math, I have often found that it is useful to backtrack a bit to review the fundamentals – to ensure a solid foundation in numeracy and basic algebra. Without that review, many students become overwhelmed by what can feel like random rules being layered on top. In general, students can often find success in math by focusing less on a list of rules to memorize and more on understanding some of the mathematical relationships those rules tell us about. I believe that these foundations are essential as building blocks for high school and higher level math, but also for functioning in the broader world. When working with students who have strong math skills already, and particularly on test prep, I focus on helping them develop problem-solving abilities - on building a bridge between what they know and what they need to know. This approach helps set them up to more quickly and successfully integrate new concepts moving forward.

My highest priority is my student’s success. For me, that means I welcome feedback and questions from students and parents and am happy to adapt to meet students’ needs.
