I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher with a PhD in Mathematics, and over 30 years of teaching and tutoring at the university, high school, and middle school levels. My father was a professor of mathematics at UC Berkeley, and my mother was an elementary school teacher, so I have been around both mathematics and education my whole life.

I help build students confidence in mathematics in general by explaining the logic behind every step we use in solving equations, or any process we are undertaking. I bring in real world examples, an try to make the problems and concepts relatable to the individual student so that there is increased meaning for them.

I love finding ways to reach individual students, and to see that light bulb go off for them. With the deep understanding of the subject that comes with a PhD in mathematics, the extended training of National Boards Certification, and the experience that 30+ years of teaching and tutoring bring, I believe I can be an outstanding math tutor for you.

Please contact me so that you can start to understand mathematics through comprehension, and not through memorizing a bunch of formulas that make no sense to you. Mathematics is a powerful tool that can aid you throughout life, but it will be unavailable to you if you fail to see it as such.
