## About

I have 17 years of experience teaching and tutoring students in math both in-person and online, and I have a passion for helping students to be successful. For five years, I was a co-host of the Homework Hotline call-in television show that gave students an opportunity to get homework help.

Students tell me that I am able to help students feel more comfortable with math. I am familiar with common misconcecptions, and I am able to quickly clear them up for students.

I enjoy helping students to be successful and to realiize that they really are capable of understanding math concepts and skills.

## Frequently asked questions

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

I like to ask questions to ascertain a student's greatest area of need and what they are currently working on. I then start to work with the student on current concepts and skills in their math courses.

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

I have been a math teracher for 17 years, and I have always sought out professional development to keep myself current. I also was hired to be a co-host on the "Homework Hotline:" telelvision show which provided math homework help for students in a call-in format. I did that for five years. I taught in a traditional brick-and-mortar setting for 9 years, and in an online setting for 7 years.

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

I have taught math and tutored my own students for many years, but charging for my tutoring is new to me. I will need to find out how much I should charge for my services.,

### How did you get started teaching?

I always knew that I wanted to be a math teacher, but went back to college later in life to get my teaching degree and license. I had excellent math teachcers from kindergarten through college, and I like to help students to realize that they can be successful in math.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked mostly with middle school students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, and I have taught Algebra I to both middle school and high school students. My students have come from diverse backgrounds, and I enjoy working with all students.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

At the beginning of last year, I had several students who were struggling in their math courses. I set up weekly sessions during which I worked with each student individually. Each of those students became successful and passed their math courses even though they originally thought they could not.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I always recommend that students find a teacher with whom they are comfortable. Teachers have different teaching styles, and a student needs a teacher whose style works for them.

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

1) What exactly do I need help with?

2) How do I learn best?

3) What topics in math have I been successful with in the past, and which topics have I struggled with?
