I have a deep understanding of the material I teach, and I have 12 years of experience developing the most effective way to break down concepts into simpler steps. I am results-focused and start by asking about what academic goals you or your student want to achieve.
Together we can develop a plan to meet your goals in the most efficient way.
I have seen first-hand how practice and consistency have overcome limitations and even learning disabilities. The human mind is capable of growing new neural pathways, and I can show you how to strengthen them over time.
This growth mindset challenges ideas like “I’m not a math person” and “I just can’t do it” in favor of ideas like “effort makes me stronger” and “failure is an opportunity to grow.” This is empowering, even when you make a mistake. I teach you that those mistakes can be celebrated as opportunities because they are exactly where you find the highest potential for learning.
My enthusiasm and passion for math creates a positive energy throughout the lesson, and I am excited to celebrate the small wins with my students using stickers and high-fives.
I am also extremely patient and friendly, so you know that I won’t get frustrated no matter what questions you ask.
My schedule is flexible and I am always available to talk with you about progress updates.
Beyond The Lesson
My approach to tutoring encompasses all resources that you need to achieve your academic goals, not just the lesson. I write custom worksheets, reference guides, and practice tests that are personalized to each student, to take your learning beyond the limitations of the class material.
I can guide you through strengthening your study skills, learning techniques to overcome test anxiety. plus developing more organization for your notes and your planner.
