I graduated from MIT in Civil Engineering.
Philadelphia HS for Girls Summa Cum Laude Calculus BC 4. Tutored Math all thru school. I love Math esp geometry. It's fun and applicable everywhere. Math is in Dance, Music, Art, Cooking, Sports, Science, Cars, Colors, Politics, Medicine, everything.
I also tutor Biology. I don't know why I love Biology more than all the other Sciences, perhaps because I can see how it applies directly to our daily lives, to our well being and health and safety.
I teach HOW to enthusiastically study for FUN such that my students go on to excel all around.
I look to the multiple intelligences and various perceptual styles to customize a methodology that works best for YOU. Your confidence will soar once we determine and apply YOUR approach to the subject.
I truly enjoy having people see Math and Science everywhere. I enjoy exploring the multiple intelligences of my students and their learning styles. I LOVE seeing them fly thru what was once difficult. I love seeing them tackle new things on their own using the skills I taught them. I feel so proud. I love when some little thing that I thought didn't even take turns out to have made a huge difference in the success of my students. They tell me later.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Determine what their goal is in working with a math tutor such as me.
Look at what they have already done. Look at where they aim to go. Look at what is missing or in the way. Chart a course from A to B. Determine their interests to develop a thematic approach. As they work, try different modalities to see which ones are most effective and for which ones they have an affinity. Tweak approach as new information arises.
