I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Civil Engineering degree. I worked as a CVE for 5 years and decided to change careers and become a Secondary Ed. math teacher. I earned my teaching certificate from Providence College and taught for 5 years. I also have my masters degree in Guidance Counseling. I have been a math tutor for over 10 years and am very excited to join Varsity Tutors! I tutor students in Algebra I, II, Geometry, and Precalculus. Tutoring allows me to do what I love while simultaneously helping students become successful confident math students. My teaching/tutoring style is flexible and unique to each student. I encourage students to think for themselves rather than give them the answers. It is important that students learn how to approach different problems using prior knowledge. I encourage them to do that while also giving them the math support they need before frustration sets in. Tutoring has been an extremely positive experience for me and I look forward to continuing that with Varsity Tutors!
