I am a high school math teacher. I have taught all high school subjects including AP courses and test prep courses. I have a masters of education in mathematics and a bachelors of science in accounting and finance. I love to help others and want them to be successful. My philosophy is "it isn't that you don't know it, it is that you don't know it YET!" I have a child with ADHD and autism, so I also have a clear understanding of a variety of different learners. Test prep is one of my favorite things to teach. many
people struggle with test taking, I have found that in addition to knowing the subject, it is important to understand the skill of test taking.


On a personal note, I love to ski, hike and spend time with my three kids, husband and three dogs.
