Hello! I recently graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Bridgewater State University with a BS in Mathematics concentrating on Statistics. I've always had a strong passion for math, and I have a wide variety of tutoring experience from elementary and high school students to (more recently) college students.
I truly enjoy math and know how relevant it is in everyday life. Because I'm so passionate about the subject, I am patient with those that I tutor because I want them to be successful and excited when they grasp something. I love seeing that look of understanding when something 'clicks' and a student finally gets what they have struggled to learn.
Math, with its abstract concepts, is a difficult subject to learn, and can be difficult to teach. Every student has a different learning style that works for them. I pride myself on being able to connect with students and to understand what they already know, in order to take their learning to the next level. Sometimes a student knows the material, but just isn't confident about how they found an answer. Other times, the student may benefit from a real-life example. For instance, a sports fan may understand the concepts of percentages better if it's explained in terms of number of free throws in comparison to total points scored. Or maybe the method is converting the ingredients from a recipe made for four people to a recipe for six. It is my job to help each student find what works best for them.
I have a full-time day job, so I am available most nights and weekends. Online or in-person lessons are both fine with me. I practice social distancing and will absolutely wear a mask to in-person sessions. Come see why math is such an exciting subject!
