## About

My passion is teaching! This is my 11th year in the classroom. I have taught 7th-12th grade. My specialties are 7th/8th grade math, Algebra I, Algebra II, and my personal favorite: Geometry. I have a natural ability to explain math in a way that helps students understand it. Students have been known to come back to ask me questions well after I've had them in class. I have the ability and experience to teach virtually but can also meet in person.

Due to my education and experience, my rate is $40 an hour for an hour long virtual session and $50 an hour for an in-person session.

I have my Master's Degree in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction although I don't see myself ever wanting to leave the actual classroom to use it. Every day is different and such a joy. I'm very lucky that I can say that I love my job! I want to help others realize their full potential and to learn that math doesn't have to be so scary.

## Frequently asked questions

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

I begin by trying to discern what they already know so that I can build off of that foundation.

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

I have a Bachelors Degree in 7-12 Mathematics Education as well as a Masters in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction. This is my 10th year of teaching in the classroom. My areas of expertise are Middle School Math, Algebra 1, and Geometry.

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

I need more info on the services requested. I will give a quote upon request.

We can meet on a regular basis. Either every week or every other week. My goal though is to have the student reach a point where I'm no longer needed on a weekly basis.

### How did you get started teaching?

I've ALWAYS dreamed of being a teacher. I started in college as a 4-9 Math and Science major before switching to 7-12.

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

I've taught a large variety of students over the years. I usually have at least 65 students a year from grades 7th to 12th. I have taught students of many different abilities.

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

We recently just finished Spirit Week at school. So for one of the days I had to wear my PJ's to school in front of 65+ teenagers! You may reference the picture I shared.

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

Teaching a concept is often one of the best ways to learn it. Find out if your tutor has experience teaching in that area.

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

Students should write down any questions that they have or don't understand before meeting with a teacher for help. Also write down your goals for the session. It is usually easier to do this ahead of time than when the teacher/tutor is putting you on the spot.
