I am a Math teacher with 33 years of teaching experience. I have worked with children and adults of all ages and all different Math abilities. I have taught summer school as well and have tutored many kids who need the help as well as many students who were looking into getting into accelerated math.
I just love working with kids and hellping them to understand Math and gain confidence in Math. I find that when I have tutored kids, they feel much better about the concepts they were struggling with and they gain a lot more confidence in themselves and Math. It is always fun and rewarding to find different ways for my students to enjoy math and to be successful in math.
