I have been tutoring for over 10 years and absolutely love it. I pride myself on helping students enjoy math by strategically plan sessions to help bridge learning gaps and make math more meaningful. I differentiate lessons for each student to help him or her reach their ultimate math goal. I build a positive rapport with my students. While we can cover a lot during sessions, I also understand that students may have questions that come up and need to be addressed in between sessions. I provide my students and their parents with my contact information or other resources to best help them.
She’s awesome! She makes math easier! I understand what I need to work on and she explains it simply. She goes at my pace too. She makes sure I feel comfortable with the material we covered before she leaves.
She breaks down the information so I can understand it. She also helps me find easier ways to ge the answers. I understand math a lot better because of Ms. Morrissey!
For a new student, I start by seeing where they are mathematically. I determine their strengths and weaknesses by providing an age appropriate baseline assessment. For there I begin tutoring the student using material from their teachers or my own material. After a few sessions I retest and see if there was growth.
I have a master's degree in secondary education in mathematics. I have been a high school teacher for the passed 6 years.
