I received my Masters in Mathematics from Roosevelt University with a concentration in Actuarial Mathematics. I received two Bachelors degrees from the University of Maryland in Mathematics and Astronomy. I have experience tutoring students at all levels of mathematics, from middle school to advanced undergraduate. I have tutored privately and for Roosevelt University and taught mathematics for a year in Nashville, TN. I believe that an understanding of mathematics is essential and I have given many students a greater understanding and confidence in mathematics. I believe that every student can succeed and I bring that attitude with me to every tutoring session. When I am not doing mathematics I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing the flute.

Show them how to work problems, and gradually have them complete steps until they are comfortable working problems on their own.
