## About

I am a certified math teacher with 14 years classroom experience, a Masters in Education from University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Mathematics from University of Minnesota. I teach students for the unique way that they learn & help build foundational skills necessary for contined sucess. I help students master their learning experience by learning their mind so they can be their own advocates in the clsssroom. I provide resources and incentives for students to be motivated in each session as well as create trackers for student progress.

I specialize in Middle School Math, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, and SAT/ACT/GED Prep.

After 14 years of teaching, I've learned...

1.Anyone can learn anything if they believe they can learn

2. Love first to teach well

3. The teacher must allow themselves to be a student

4. Teaching is a spiritual practice. Teachers must stay positive to help students find their motivation.

5. Our babies are brilliant.

## Frequently asked questions

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

First, I find out when the student started finding math difficult so I can anticipate where they may need the most help. Then we will complete a short diagnostic just to see where their understanding falls short. We will then work on the most basic skill necessary for them to be at their math grade level.
