Hi, I'm Devin. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston College with my B.A. in Mathematics, and my M.Ed. in Secondary Mathematics Education. I have experience tutoring and teaching at levels from 4th grade through early college. I am currently a certified teacher in 2 states, with certifications in both mathematics and comprehensive technological education. I am currently a STEM teacher at a highly ranked public high school in New Hampshire.

Hi, I'm Devin. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston College with my B.A. in Mathematics, and my M.Ed. in Secondary Mathematics Education. I have experience tutoring and teaching at levels from 4th grade through early college. I am currently a certified teacher in 2 states, with certifications in both mathematics and comprehensive technological education. I am currently a STEM teacher at a highly ranked public high school in New Hampshire.
I became a teacher in order to help students find the same success I found. Without having good teachers, who cared about students, I would have had no motivation to succeed. Teaching and tutoring are about making a student realize they are capable, and allowing them room to grow both independently, and with guidance and support. I believe that knowledge alone is not enough to succeed; it needs to be matched with confidence. Tutors and teachers are at their best when they are able to not only pass information to their students, but allow their students to feel like they have mastered the content.
I have experience in teaching math at the middle and high school level, as well as having had intensive education in the instruction of mathematics. I also have a deep background knowledge of mathematics content, through my B.A., which allows me to instill mathematics skills that allow success now and in the future.
I have had success on standardized testing, scoring above the 90th percentile on my SAT and GRE. I did this only with self-study, and I have confidence in both my test-taking strategies and my content knowledge for both of these tests.
If you have any questions, please let me know. It never hurts to ask. I am looking to schedule lessons; my hours are flexible.
