I am a long-tenured educator (experience ranging from middle school through college) who is eager to help students achieve their academic goals. Whether you (or your child) have just encountered that great beast of abstraction that is Algebra I or you are an undergraduate looking for some help tackling your first formal statistics course, I am here to help.
First and foremost, I believe that in order to learn, we have to be open and eager to take in new material or master new skills. This can only be achieved by being balanced and settled emotionally. If you're scared of Algebra or stats or economics or the LSAT, it is going to be very difficult to learn. So, a great deal of my style has to do with breaking down the various perceptions and fears that can get in the way of us learning. I'll spend time convincing you that Algebra is something that not only will not ruin your life, but is instead something that can be easily conquered just as I'll work to convince you that you're entire undergraduate career will not be scuttled by your struggle to figure out standard deviation. Once we get the proper measure of the challenges in front of us, I will support you as we energetically attack new problems, master new material, and get the grades and scores you're capable of. I even throw in free jokes/humor free of charge.
Now, say it with me...it's going to be alright! I can't wait to get started working with you!
