About this tutor

I am currently a middle school math teacher for Bridgeport Public Schools.  I led my students to win the city math competition.  My undergraduate degree was in mathematics with some advanced classes in statistics.  I've loved math my entire life and I work to not only help students learn it, but love it.

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

I typically start with looking at recent school work or I give a general test depending on their grade or level of past math achievement.  I then find their strengths and their areas of need so we focus our efforts in appropriate areas.  Then, I make a general calendar with small goals so that we stay on track if we have a limit of time.  I'll assess their work as we go so we make sure we are making sufficient progress towards our goal.

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

My undergraduate degree is in mathematics and my graduate degree is in secondary mathematics education.  I am a middle school math teacher for Bridgeport Public Schools and my middle school math team brought home first place in the city wide math competition last year.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I don't have a standard pricing system.  It all depends on the needs of the students, how often we will meet, and how long the meetings are.  

How did you get started teaching?

I've wanted to teach since the third grade, participated in future teacher's club in high school, and went on to earn a degree in mathematics.  This all put me on the track to earning my degree in secondary mathematics education so I can work with students in the subject that many students find the most difficult.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students as young as three up through 12th grade.  I have also worked with potential teachers who needed help on the Praxis standardize math test.

What questions should students think through before talking to tutors about their needs?

Students should start by talking to the people closest to them to gather a thorough opinion on their standing in mathematics.  They should then assess what their strengths and needs are.  Then, only when they are ready, they should reach out to a tutor.
