...I know first hand how guided learning can change math from frustration to freedom. Who would have thought I would be teaching math and loving it after so many years struggling in junior high and high school! Besides teaching and tutoring math, I homeschooled four children K-12.

...In tutoring prealgebra, I help my students learn how to read a math problem, discern what the problem is asking, and decide on the most effective way to solve the problem. Each student learns differently, and I try to help students find the way that works for them. Some topics I work with include solving equations, absolute value, inequalities, proportions and factoring.

...It is fascinating to find out why things happen the way they happen. Similarly, I experience the same enjoyment in math when I understand the way numbers behave and then apply that understanding to real life situations. We are all surrounded by math and science, and a practical knowledge of them makes the world that much less mysterious.

...I have a candidate master (expert) rating, and for three years taught chess in a summer program at Towson University. I have had success preparing students for the ASVAB, and I especially enjoy helping them tackle the word problems on the Arithmetic Reasoning section. Time management is important, and test-taking strategies are key.

...Before my current position, I was a special education teacher at a private therapeutic day school in which I taught for three school years. I worked with a co-teacher in a classroom with a three to one student to teacher ratio. The students had a range of disabilities and I worked with teachers, specialists, clinicians, behavior specialists, and psychologists to make all students successful.
