About this tutor

I went to school in New York at SUNY Old Westbury. While obtaining my degree in Mathematics, I also completed many education courses. I went on to San Francisco State University to work on my Master's Degree in Mathematics.

I have been tutoring mathematics courses for more than 15 years: private tutoring, working for learning centers, or tutoring online. While working on my degree, I taught lower level college mathematics courses at San Francisco State University for 4 years. I have been working with Gifted and Talented students as well as students with special needs for the last 4 years in an online environment.

I love sharing my knowledge and being a part of other people's learning process. Not only do I tutor, but I manage a team of tutors who support secondary-level mathematics, physics, and computer science courses. I support my team by conducting professional developments and quality assurance, empowering them to be the best tutors they can be. 

As a lover of games, I like to show students how to treat math problems as a puzzle and use the building blocks to put the pieces together and arrive at the final answer. I encourage students to build a good foundation and not to just study tricks to pass a test. I'm a true believer that anyone can learn a new concept if they can find the way that they learn best.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to get to know the student personally and academically. This helps me make the examples related and easier to grasp for each individual. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have bachelors and masters degrees in Mathematics. I have private tutored different level mathematics courses for over 15 years, worked in learning centers for K-12 math and language arts, and taught at San Francisco State University for 4 years. I have tutored in-person and online. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring in my freshman year of college. As a student who was able to break down difficult math concepts, it was a joy sharing what I could do with others and helping them build their confidence and success in math.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a diverse group of students over the years including gifted and talented students, students with disabilities, and students with special needs.
