## About

I help students truly understand mathematical concepts, believe that they can do math, and minimize math phobia. I have been teaching math for over 20 years in both high school and middle school. I taught math for 2 years at an American school in London, 8 years in NYC public schools and the past 14 years at a private school in NJ. I worked as an engineer in the United States and England before deciding to become a math teacher. I have a BS in Civil Engineering and an MS In secondary mathematics education.

As a teacher, tutor and coach, I have always enjoyed working with children and adolescents. I really enjoy helping students come to an understanding of ideas and seeing that moment of recognition in their eyes.

## Frequently asked questions

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

Initially I discuss with the student and parent what his or her needs are. I will meet with the student to understand what they are working on and determine areas in need of clarification and support. If a student is looking to enrich their mathematical education, I can develop creative lessons to encourage that.

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

My initial background is in engineering, though with great love of math and the desire to work with adolescents and teens I became a math teacher over 20 years ago. I have also coached basketball and been an assistant coach for my children's soccer teams.
