Bio

I have been teaching high school math for the past 11 years. I typically teach all courses offered in the high school setting - algebra I and II, geometry, and pre-calculus. Additionally, I have a record of success with AP Statistics. I have designed the curriculum guides for many of the classes offered in my district. I also regularly pilot new classes for the district, most recently a college readiness class, which began two years ago with a single pilot class and has grown to an...

I have been teaching high school math for the past 11 years. I typically teach all courses offered in the high school setting - algebra I and II, geometry, and pre-calculus. Additionally, I have a record of success with AP Statistics. I have designed the curriculum guides for many of the classes offered in my district. I also regularly pilot new classes for the district, most recently a college readiness class, which began two years ago with a single pilot class and has grown to an offering of six classes for this upcoming year. I have had excellent success with remedial students, having graduated 100% of my seniors this year who needed the HSPA / AHSA process as a graduation requirement. I do the majority of the mathematics home instruction for my district, working with students from elementary through the high school level, including SAT prep. I have also been the recipient of the NJ State Teacher of the Year Award.

I enjoy teaching, and work hard to help students understand material that is difficult for them or enhance their knowledge of a subject that they love. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you or your child to master the mathematical challenges at hand.
