...Practice with both computation and problem solving makes students confident and successful. So often, I encounter students who know how to "follow the steps" but lack the understanding of why a problem is solved in a particular way or what the answer actually means. The use of the Common Core standards asks students to see the meaning behind the math--I can help give them that understanding.

...I was valedictorian of my high school class, and I have an honors degree in math from Harvard. During college I was a Teaching Assistant at the Harvard Extension College, working with members of the local community in a variety of subjects. After that, I worked for 35 years doing economic research and software development -- fields in which logic and math are used every day.

...I performed very well on my own GRE, especially the verbal section. I have previously tutored one student for the GRE and she improved her baseline scores by 100 points in each section. I am a certified English teacher, so I have proofread hundreds of student papers.

...While we review the important concepts for the test, I teach students more about how to tackle problems they don't know by using alternate strategies. I also teach them about doing problems in a faster way even if they were getting them right in the first place so that they have time for harder questions. Outside of tutoring, I am a professional business writer.
