Qualifications & Experience

I have a Master's degree in mathematics and a Bachelor's degree in Biology. I am a state certified teacher with over 8 years of experience teaching at the secondary and college levels. In a Collegiate Scholars Program, I taught Algebra and Chemistry to gifted high school students. My approach to teaching these subjects is conceptual. I train my students to make connections between the abstraction of Algebra and real-world applications. I am currently an SAT/ACT Test Prep Instructor at a Florida university.

In my experience, I've found that students learn mathematics most efficiently through conceptual-based learning and active engagement in problem solving. Because of this, I will teach you problem solving strategies and help you improve mathematical proficiency through challenging problems. I will also help you build mathematical intuition needed to break down difficult concepts. I am able to really break down problems for better understanding and love to explain concepts from many different angles to help with anxiety and to build your confidence level.

I give both individual and group sessions. I am usually available in the mornings and afternoons, but I'm flexible with students. My sessions are of two types; one for assigned work (homework, tests, etc.) and one centered on problem solving techniques and methods of proof. I assign problems once a week, to give you more practice with what you've learned.

I look forward to hearing from you! I'll help you succeed in your studies!

She is absolutely superb! She brings her own supplies and even gives homework. She meets your child where she is and goes from there. On top of all this she has a kind and gentle manner. My daughter really likes her.
