...I have worked successfully with students of all abilities, and my students (and their parents) tell me they are so relieved to finally understand math and not be made to feel dumb or lazy for not understanding. Confidence can be very powerful. I tutor Algebra, Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and SAT prep.

...Having witnessed ?learned helplessness? and math phobias, both in school settings and my practicum experience, I strive to help students to develop positive attitudes regarding mathematics. Mathematics is a stepping stone, not a frustrating high school class. I use my energy and enthusiasm to promote positivity and active learning, helping all students access the mathematics curriculum.

...I volunteer as a big sister to an elementary student in Brighton. This has taught me more ways to keep someone's attention. It is also extremely important for me to connect with and encourage students I am helping.
