Hello! I want to take a few moments to share with you some of my background and my approach to tutoring. Graduating with highest distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago, I received both my Bachelor of Arts and my state teaching certification.

...I have taught and tutored mathematics to middle school and high school students for over 15 years. I believe every student can be successful in mathematics. There are multiple ways to teach each concept and it is the teacher's job to find the method that works for the student.

...I have dozens of creative ways to help students get past their barriers in understanding it. I'm very capable in this subject - proof-based **geometry** requires students to think like mathematicians or lawyers. I already have a mathematicians' intuitions, and I know so many ways to push students to greater understanding.

...I believe that sentence structure, grammar and punctuation are best taught in context as strategic rhetorical choices rather than in a long list of restrictive rules and exceptions. I first tutored math in graduate school as I helped education majors prepare for state exams. A few years later, I was a math and algebra (and language arts) tutor at Sylvan Learning Center.

...Trig has been the course I have enjoyed teaching the most the last few years. I enjoy the challenge of explaining this difficult topic to students. I have been teaching a trig course for the past 5 years.
