About this tutor

I taught 7th grade math for the past three years in a high performing Indianapolis Public Schools charter school where 100% of students receive free lunch, more than 95% graduate high school in four years and all graduates are accepted to four-year colleges or universities. My students often came from challenging backgrounds and require additional specialized support. I will be able to provide your child a level of support and commitment that most are not used to providing. 

I currently live in San Francisco, where I work for an education nonprofit. 

My students are and will always be what keeps me going back to work.

FAQs


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

The first thing I do is contact the family of the student to explain my goals, my approach and ask what specific supports will benefit that student most. From that point onward, I view my relationships with parents as partnerships to help their kids get what they want, on their terms. 


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

I have three years of experience working at a challenging school with students who need all different types of support, including special education accomodations, English as a Second Language support, and individualized behavior plans. 

I also have a Masters in Education from Marian University, where many of my classes focused on designing rigorous, trauma-informed curriculum in urban public school settings.


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

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

* What is my goal? How will I get there?

* Did I draw a picture? Write an equation? Create a table or graph? Is there another way to make sense of this problem?

* What is my ultimate goal in advocating for myself through this conversation?

* What do I value in a teacher? In myself?
