I graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 1994 and began my teaching career right after that. I have taught all levels of High School Mathematics, from Pre-Algebra all the way through AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics, as well as adjunct teaching at the Community College level. I work hard at making Math easier for students to understand, and realize that helping students make sense of the logic is imperative to success. I use a variety of methods while tutoring, including the use of manipulatives and dialogue to help students gain concrete understanding of topics. While not in school, I enjoy singing and playing my piano and guitar, as well as the occasional round of golf. I am also a volleyball official and can be found many weekends at the local courts (both indoor and outdoor) honing my craft.
