I have a Ph.D. from Columbia University in Mathematics Education and currently teach mathematics at Mercy College. I have tutored math since high school. I also have volunteered in this area, tutoring elementary school students in the Bronx for three school years. I enjoy tutoring all levels of mathematics from elementary level through college. At the high school and college levels, I especially enjoy teaching any level of algebra.
I think of math problems as interesting puzzles and I hope to impart that sense to my students. I also believe that there is too much emphasis on speed in calculation or solution. I like to emphasize the importance of logic and understanding rather than speed or rote memorization. I have found that students who never liked math before can often become much more positive and accomplished when this approach is used.
I left my career in law to become a mathematics teacher!
I love yoga and practice regularly. In my spare time I like to learn about almost anything. This summer I took courses in Classical Mythology. I also like to ski, when I can.
