Bio

I have taught math at both the secondary and post secondary levels in New York City for about 12 yrs before moving to North Carolina. Prior to teaching, I worked as a quantitative analyst for an equities firm (TIAA-CREF) for over 10 years. This experience helps me provide an approach to learning mathematics that focus on understanding principles rather than memorization. Understanding facilitates both application and retention of the subject matter. My approach is more of a teaching style...

I have taught math at both the secondary and post secondary levels in New York City for about 12 yrs before moving to North Carolina. Prior to teaching, I worked as a quantitative analyst for an equities firm (TIAA-CREF) for over 10 years. This experience helps me provide an approach to learning mathematics that focus on understanding principles rather than memorization. Understanding facilitates both application and retention of the subject matter. My approach is more of a teaching style rather than tutoring. I measure success by how much my students understand, not by how much they do. I strongly believe that standardized tests will take care of themselves if the student masters the subject matter. For that reason I do not do test prep of any kind. I would like to teach/tutor mathematics in a comprehensive manner, rather than teach short cuts to do well on an exam. Don't wait till you are having difficulties to get help, be proactive in your education and let's work on your gaps in understanding of math principles before the new year begins.

I haven't forgotten those days I left a classroom not comprehending the days lesson. Felt frustrated, discouraged, unmotivated and intimidated. I keep reminding myself of those feelings as motivation to providing the most patient, clear and well thought instruction to my students. I've been there, it's not fun.

Don't play catchup, get a leg up on next semester and get help as your own pace during the summer months. It will pay dividends during the school year.
