I am a certified math teacher with almost two decades of teaching experience in both a traditional high school classroom and a virtual setting. I have earned a Master's degree and the equivalent of another Master's degree so that I could educate myself on ways to teach all my students in the way that they learn best. I tutor grades 7 through adult learners, which includes Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Statistics and Trigonometry.

I work to create a relationship with my students. I have learned that many students come to me with a negative history with prior math courses and I try to give the student a positive experience. I use humor, stories, and real world examples to help break down complicated examples so that students can understand the topic at hand. I also make sure that any skill gaps are filled and any math anxiety is addressed so that the student can be success both today and tomorrow. I want the student to leave both my sessions and their math courses feeling that they had a little bit of fun and understood the material.

Many of my tutoring sessions right now are assigned to me randomly and are for a fixed amount of time. There is one student that comes to mind who was with me for a 10 week period for Algebra I. She faithfully came twice a week for 30 minutes for all her sessions. Most of the time, she was the only one that signed in. She never turned on her camera, but she always answered questions and asked questions when she didn't understand. At the end of 30 minutes, she was surprised the session was over because it "went so fast". I was able to make quadratic equations easier to understand for her and her classroom grade improved. When the end of the sessions came, she didn't want to sign up for the next round unless I would be the tutor. At the time, the company could not guarantee that, so our paths have not crossed again. She was my first student to request to have me again, so I know I made a difference in her learning.

Outside of tutoring, I play the piano and have played since I was five. I actually was learning to read music before I was learning to read words! I also love to read and to travel. Traveling is one of my hidden interests. I try to take a major trip every year and have done around 20 international trips so far.
