About this tutor

I like to explain and illustrate concepts in math in ways that make it easy for students to grasp and understand.

I've taught math for 25 years in public, private, residential and alternative education settings in Delaware, Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia.

I am currently certified in Florida and West Virginia in Elementary K-6 and Middle Math 5-9.

I enjoy interacting with students at every level while they are doing their work and finding out about their creativity and interest.  

Getting to know them better helps build a stronger relationship of confidence and trust between student and teacher.

FAQs


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

The student shares with me what area or concept of math they're having trouble with, they try a few problems out independently, then we go through each problem step-by-step to see where the breakdown occurs.

We then make the corrections and apply them to additional similar problems, engage in some guided practice, assure mastery has occurred and then address the next concept that follows.


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

I have a Masters in Human Resorce Management, a Bachelors in Psychology and have worked in education for most of my professional life.  

I have been working with students for 25 years that were in all kinds of educational settings.
