George Herbert Palmer wrote, "Each year we creep a little nearer to our goal, only to find that a finished teacher is a contradiction in terms.” I realized very quickly in my career that no matter how much I honed my skills or expanded my breadth and depth of knowledge, there would always be something else beyond the horizon. Fielding a question, you don’t know the answer to is very different as a rookie teacher compared to a veteran teacher. As I’ve gained experience, I have also gained wisdom and can simply admit that I don’t know the answer without losing any credibility with my students.

My teaching has changed a lot since I started twenty-eight years ago. I have a greater patience now that I ever had before. You quickly learn to meet the students where they are and coax them to the finish line. I know that leading a student to the answer is a far better way to teach instead of telling them. And, most importantly, instruction is not about me - it is about the students.

During my teaching career I have had the opportunity to teach everything from middle school mathematics to AP Calculus AB.

If you're looking for a tutor who will just give you answers then I am NOT the tutor for you. But, if you want to understand how you learn the best, learn strategies for solving problems and are willing to put in the work then I AM the tutor for you.

A little bit more about my background. I have BA in mathematics and an MS Ed in Secondary Mathematics Education. I believe you will find me knowledgeable and able to lead you through even your most difficult challenges.
