I am a graduate of Stanford University. I received my BA in Philosophy, and continued with graduate studies at Brown University where I received my MA in philosophy and completed all my course requirements for a PhD in philosophy. After several adventurous decades including travel in Africa and Asia, building a house in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, running a business designing and selling jewelry, and building alternative straw bale buildings on my property in the White Mountains of Arizona, I started tutoring math at Northland Pioneer College in Snowflake and Show Low, AZ. The past two years I have been spending most of my time in the Phoenix area where I am tutoring math, ranging from arithmetic to algebra to trig and calculus, with my main love and main focus being on algebra. What I love about algebra is the detective work---figuring out what needs to be done to solve a problem instead of just attacking it with a calculator. My tutoring style is to adapt my explanations to the needs of my students---there are always several ways to do any given problem, and I ask questions to determine which way will work best for an individual student. In my spare time, I am an artist, in ceramics and fused glass; and I love reading, mainly non-fiction in the area of personal growth and development.
