About Maureen

Hello.

I recently left a financial services job in the private sector and am now looking for job opportunities as a teacher or tutor as the next step in my career.

Due to my education and 25 years experience in financial services, math is my strongest subject. It was my favorite subject in school and I have had real-world use throughout my career.

I have tutored third through sixth graders as they prepared for New York State math tests, high school algebra and geometry, and college-level microeconomics. Most recently, I have tutored Algebra I and II, Geometry and college level economics. I also was an adjunct professor of Economics at Concordia College. While in graduate school I was an economics teaching assistant.

During 2013-2016, I was the New York based editor for an international bank, where my primary responsibility was to edit research and strategy reports. My clients were both native and non-native English speakers.

I spent many years training clients, employees and talking to the media. As a result I have a strong training background. Most of it involved teaching clients to use our financial products and computer applications, training my staff and colleagues on our products and the financial markets, and interpreting economic statistics for reporters.

Thank you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

In the past five years, I have tutored third and fourth graders as they prepared for New York State math tests, high school algebra and geometry in preparation of regents exams, and college-level microeconomics. I have also been an adjunct professor of Economics at Concordia College. While in graduate school I was an economics teaching assistant.

Economics

I have a Masters of Science degree in Economics. For most of my 25-year professional career I was an economist in the financial services industry, where I put economic principles to use in business decisions and financial analysis. In 2013, I taught an Economics class (Money and Banking) at Concordia College as an adjunct professor.

Elementary Math

During 2014 and 2015 I tutored a 10 year old boy in fourth grade level mathematics.

My academic and professional background were both heavily focused on mathematics and related fields. I have recent experience in both tutoring one-on-one and teaching at the class level.

Prealgebra

During 2013-2015, I tutored 10th and 11th grade algebra students attending New York state public schools. Prealgebra sets the foundation for algebra coursework and requires much of the same basic fundamentals of mathematics. My professional background has been in financial research and analysis, which also requires a strong mathematics foundation. I have experience in both tutoring one-on-one and teaching at the class level.

Excellent, patient and skilled tutor — Just because one knows a subject area, does not make everyone a great tutor. Maureen though is a real treasure. She is patient, knows the subject (in this case Algebra I in HS), and was immediately to dive into helping our daughter for an upcoming fine. We plan to utilize her in the future again -- excellent tutor and great to work with. ...
