Bio

I have been teaching elementary and middle school for the past 15 years, and I have taught martial arts for 15 years as well. I have taught all subjects from kindergarten to 8th grade math! I went to Penn State University for my K-6 teaching degree, and Lehigh University for my Master's in Educational Leadership. I love teaching and making school fun and engaging!

I have been teaching elementary and middle school for the past 15 years, and I have taught martial arts for 15 years as well. I have taught all subjects from kindergarten to 8th grade math! I went to Penn State University for my K-6 teaching degree, and Lehigh University for my Master's in Educational Leadership. I love teaching and making school fun and engaging!

I love teaching all subjects, but math would be my specialty! The past few years I have been teaching 6th grade math, where I worked with students on topics like using operations with decimals/fractions, algebra, ratios, geometry, measurement, and data & statistics. I can help your student develop strong study habits, get better grades, and also make real world connections to the topics being taught!

I have been teaching math the past few years, ranging from 8th grade math to 6th grade math. I have a degree in Elementary Education, as well as my certification in Mid Level Mathematics - 7th to 9th grade. I make math fun and interesting because I try to connect the lessons I teach to the real world. I find out what my students are interested in and use that to guide my instruction. I enjoy showing students who find math confusing or stressful that it can be done!
-------------
I have been a taking karate for 15 years, and I am a second degree black belt. Our school had a mix of styles, ranging from Tae Kwon Do, Shorin Ryu, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Jiu Jitsu, and Boxing. Once I earned my black belt I taught twice a week for about 8 years. If you would be interested in taking online or in person classes, we would start with basic techniques like blocks, punches, kicks, stances, and go from there!

Please contact me with any questions or to set up a tutoring session! I look forward to helping your student improve in school or martial arts!!

I have been using common core at my current job, as well as for charter schools I used to work at. I plan my lessons using a "backwards planning" style where we look at the objectives laid out by the common core curriculum. I have used common core in all grades ranging from kindergarten to 8th grade.

Excellent Math Tutor

Ross G is helping me review 6th grade math and making it lots of fun. He calls me Kiddo and is so kind to me and my family. -Allie I love hearing the sessions with my daughter and Ross. He is organized, engaging, patient and explains the concepts well. I feel confident that he will help her overcome the so-called "Covid Slide" this summer. -Jenny, Allie's Mom
