I am a certified math teacher with more than 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring children of all ages. I build my students up; my background as a Special Education Specialist helps me understand how to address the needs of learners of every ability and lead them to success.
My approach is to assess the learner’s preferred modality for mastering instruction and to base tutorial sessions on incorporating those supports for the learner's individual learning style. I meet my students where they are - with the expectation from the start that they will succeed - and guide them with positive feedback to their success.
During my teaching career, it is the Thank you notes from my students and their parents that I treasure the most. But one note in particular was a letter I received at the end of last year, from a student that was inviting me to her High School graduation. It was four years after I taught her in 8th grade Math. She thanked me for challenging her and teaching her to never give up, that it was just a little fix. Math became her favorite subject.
My family loves to travel; we have been to Germany, France, Spain, England, Canada and Mexico. I love learning about different cultures and food. I also love to exercise, walk, read, and cook.
