I love seeing students have that "aha" moment. I seek to guide students toward the correct answer but want the discovery to be their own. I am willing to tutor any area of high school or college level mathematics, with the disclaimer that if a particular topic requires outside preparation from me, that time may be factored into the tutoring cost.
I enjoy seeing students grow in confidence and meet their goals. I also enjoy connecting with and encouraging students and setting them up for success. I like to work myself out of a job (or into a less structured support role) as students grow in mastery and confidence.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I typically set out to discover what the student's goals are and then make a plan based on those goals, with more or less detail depending on the situation and desired outcome. I also encourage students to prepare in ways that maximize the effectiveness of our time together
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have my PhD in mathematics from Syracuse University, and taught Calculus as a part-time instructor at Syracuse. I have also been the primary instructor for Life Sciences Calculus II and Business Calculus. I have over ten years of tutoring experience for both high school and college students, as well as experience helping students in a group setting. In addition to having a degree in mathematics, I also have a bachelor's degree in adolescence education.
