I have been a public school math teacher for 38 years and I am heading toward retirement shortly. I love to teach and watch the students learn to apply the concepts of math to the real world.

I always have had a strong love for math but as a high school student didn't do as well as expected because smart girls weren't cool. That all changed when I went to college and I could be competitive with my peers. As I began my teaching career, I noticed that many girls that I was teaching were having the same problem that i faced in high school. I began to study the nature of this behavior and worked to correct it with my female students. The longer that I remained in education, I found that this was crossing the gender lines and that more and more students were not having the success that they should in math. I took an the approach that big successes come in little victories. By praising overcoming a small hurdle, the students became more willing to take the risk of trying something more challenging and even if they didn't succeed, they could analyze and find something positive in what they had done.

I work one-on-one with many of my students on a daily basis and I think that this is not so different from being a tutor. I have a huge supply of materials both in hard copy as well as teacher-made activities for success.

I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry and Precalculus for many years and I have a strong command of all of the subjects.

I believe that if you are struggling with math and only using Google or another search engine to find the answers to your homework problems without understanding the material, I can help. I have helped thousands of students become successful with math over the years.
