I have over 15 years experience as a middle level mathematics teacher and interventionist. I have also taught ELA in grade 6. I enjoy working with all learners. My strength as a tutor is in meeting the needs of the student academically and in learning style. I have expertise and training helping students with executive functioning challenges find strategies that meet there needs to become more successful and independent.

I love tutoring because it is rewarding and fun to see students become more competent and confident. Working one-on-one observing and understanding each learner makes me a more effective teacher. Students teach me asmuch as I teach them.

I taught Algebra as classroom teacher

I taught 6th grade math and ELA

I have experience teaching students with ADD/ADHD and training in Executive Functioning and teaching strategies to support learners.

My goal is to support the needs of the student and make myself obsolete. :)

I have 16+ years as a math teacher and earned my BA and MAT at RI College. I have taught 6th grade through Algebra 1. I teach all ability groups in core math courses as well as interventionist mat classes. I enjoy finding different and creative ways to present concepts so all students become competent and confident in the content. As an interventionist, I examine a student's mathematical thinking looking to correct any misconceptions or fill in any gaps in an age appropriate way. I enjoy seeing students light up when they learn something new or master a concept they may have been struggling with.
