I have a gift for helping students comprehend complex concepts: I am able to break difficult topics into simple components, and I am able to guide students in making connections. I am especially effective at working with students who feel they are "math challenged."
I have been working one-on-one with students for the past ten years, both as a college instructor and as a private tutor. Helping students gain confidence in themselves and their ability to think mathematically is both my passion and my purpose.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy of teaching can be compared to a cord plugged into an outlet. I view the successful student as a three-pronged plug. Students will have maximum learning gains when they have a connection with: 1) the material, 2) the instructor, and 3) their own learning. My job is to facilitate this connection.
