...Bottom line is that I build math confidence and improve math scores. I held a teaching assistantship while studying for my MA and have always enjoyed teaching. My full-time career is in financial services, which means I present (or explain) new systems to corporations and I have to be good at it.

...I have been tutoring geometry for 5 years and have worked with students at every level, from those struggling in class to those who just want to perfect their work. Geometry can be a particularly difficult curriculum to grasp, as it differs dramatically from algebra. This is particularly true when it comes to proofs.

...I loved watching these motivated students make both academic and personal strides. After graduating, I taught Chemistry at Westminster, a boarding school in Connecticut. I lived on campus, and although I was not an official tutor, many students sought me out for individual help.

...My approach to tutoring is based on helping students build high levels of confidence in themselves and their capacity to learn. My experience has taught me that once students overcome their fears and start believing in their abilities their learning becomes easier and faster. I teach students not to get overwhelmed, I break every problem/question down to small steps easy to follow.

...Everyone needs help with something. When I was in middle school, being hard of hearing and ADD, I found myself needing a tutor, because I didn't know how to organize what I was learning in my head. I was failing English and didn't know what to do, and then my tutor told me to do something.
