I love math and what I love even more is working with students to help them understand the language of math. Problem solving and critical thinking are paramount life skills and math is a great way to learn them!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I always teach the student that is in front of me that day.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like to get to know how a student thinks, specifically how a student thinks through the problem solving process. So, we will solve problems and I will ask prompting questions.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I facilitate the problem-solving process by prompting the student with questions. The student learns to be more independent when they can start asking themselves those questions before I have the chance to!
