Hello! I am a licensed mathematics teacher and special education teacher in Tennessee and Illinois. I currently work as a high school math teacher. I teach Geometry and Algebra, and I could not be happier with my wonderful job. I have experience teaching first grade, as well as middle school curriculum, so I am comfortable teaching most subjects. I am very passionate about helping struggling students build confidence and fluency within mathematics. Please feel free to reach out with any questions :)

When working with a new student I typically go over their goals as a learner. If a student would like to work on homework and specific skill attainment, we will work on that. If a student wants to get ahead in their math understanding, we will work on building foundational skills. If a student would like to work on preparing for the ACT, we will also do that.
I am a certified teacher in both Illinois and Tennessee. I have a degree in Special Education with a minor in mathematics. The degree I received taught me to understand struggling learners, and provide interventions that will help students succeed.
I charge by the hour, usually around $30 an hour.
I have always wanted to be a teacher. I am passionate about empowering the future generations. I am also passionate about mathematics. I love watching a student go from saying "I hate math, I am no good at it." To "Math is my favorite subject."
I typically work with special education students. These students generally have a diagnosis of autism, dyslexia, learning delays, and cognitive delays. I also have experience working with the diagnosed gifted and talented population.
Recently, I have been receiving mail from former students who are in college. These great students made a profound impact on me, and it is heartwarming to think I may have made an impact on them as well.
I would advise students to look at their strengths, so we can make sure we build on their strengths.
I think students talking to teachers about their needs is incredible. I would advise my students to really think about how they learn best. This can be visually, kinestetically, auditory, etc.
