I am a certified teacher with 20 years experience in teaching middle school, high school, and college level students. I know that each student learns at their own pace and learning comes in many forms. My goal is to build academic resilient students and help you to build the foundation to succeed in your studies. I offer 1:1 , small group and class pod sessions.
I enjoy helping students discover that they can do math and that math can be fun. Math is actually all around us and I love to show students how math is intertwined in daily life and activities.
