I am a certified math teacher and have worked for over nine years as a tutor. I have worked with children in elementary school, middle school, high school and students in college. I have tutored Basic Math. Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics and Pre-Calculus. I enjoy working with students, making the learning process fun and dynamic.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ and have taken Post-Graduate courses at Rutgers University.
I enjoy nature - hiking, walking, and exploring. I also enjoy reading and gardening.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe math is not necessarily a linear learning experience. It is more circular. Sometimes going back to review, sometimes leaping forward.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would assess the student's needs - the student's strengths and weaknesses. I would talk to the student about his or her goals for the sessions as well as his or her learning style.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
While observing, I would have the student work on problems independently to give the student confidence to do it on their own. I would also let the student know of various web-sites to help a student if he or she has difficulty with a problem.
