"I am committed to making a mark that cannot be erased, locally and globally. Math is not about memorizing rules and procedures, its actual logic built into our everyday lives... from the arch of a bridge to the coordinates of the street to the mass transit system... without mathematics none of the above would be possible."

"I have tutored students from 4th grade to seniors in college and enjoy them all. I especially love tutoring non-math types who think they will never get it! It is a great thrill to watch a student's confidence build and hear that wonderful sigh of relief when they finally 'get it'! I like to have fun in my sessions and I am careful to study my student's learning style. Once we tap into the student's natural strengths, the growth is exponential and the possibilities endless! My hobbies include singing/songwriting, playing piano, journaling, and dancing with my wonderful husband. I have 3 great sons ages 8, 5, and 2 years old." ...

"I believe with the proper tools and guidance, every student can have a meaningful educational experience. My philosophy is that each and every student learns at his or her own pace and each with their own style. It is my job to find out which methods work best for each student.

"I double-majored in Drama and Politics at New York University with a minor in English and I am currently pursuing a career in acting. I pride myself on being well versed not just in one subject, but in a broad selection of topics. This ranges from English literature and composition and US History to Advanced Precalculus and Physics. I love athletics and play multiple sports, always trying to keep in shape (but I'll warn you, I'm from Boston MA so I'm a big Red Sox/Celtics/Patriots fan haha...)."

"Once my goal is reached, they would not need a tutor. I always encourage them to solve a problem on their own and give them as little help as possible. I try to show my students that with a bit of diligence and patience any problem could be solved. If my student is lacking the knowledge of the basics I always make sure to cover them quickly before teaching the more advanced subject."
