...I am Massachusetts certified in English, math, and technology. I earned an Master's in Education. I have 12 years of experience as a grade 7-8 math and English teacher at two private schools, where I taught ISEE test-prep each of those twelve years.

...After that, I worked for 35 years doing economic research and software development -- fields in which logic and math are used every day. Calculus can be a difficult subject, because it requires a degree of abstraction that most students have not seen before. It introduces concepts involving continuous change rather than equations and shapes that remain static.

...I love to work on the Latin and Greek roots that form a high percentage of advanced English vocab. I use several books that help with the development of vocabulary and I also help students develop techniques for quickly acquiring and remembering new words. I emphasize the need of practicing the use of new words as well as looking at expert models to understand the correct usage.

...I am comfortable tutoring all levels of math up to calculus. My philosophy on teaching math is like building a pyramid. Each block builds on the other.

...NOW IS THE TIME - Algebra 1 introduced many topics and skills which will be PRACTICED A LOT in Algebra 2. If your child has come this far but still has problems with math skills, it's not too late - she/he can catch up and even become fond of math! Algebra 2 is very important to master, as there are 2 or more years of math in the future.
