Hi! I am a retired teacher with eighteen years teaching experience. The last fifteen years I taught middle school math, up through Algebra 1. My first few years teaching were in elementary school and 6th grade core (Language Arts and Social Studies.

My teaching philosophy is to not only teach and improve skills and concepts, but also understanding and improved self confidence.

Fifteen years experience as a math teacher has has taught me to be open to many different types of students. I believe in showing students different methods and tactics in learning math and letting them pick the method that makes the most sense to them. This allows for greater success and motivation.

I would be happy and thrilled to help your student. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a session.
