Math Tutor

I have tutored individuals as young as six and as old as 65 for over 20 years in the areas of mathematics, writing, and piano. There is truly no limit to what you can achieve when you have the support you need to identify the blocks that hold you back and help you get through them. Because mathematics is such a linear subject, if there is confusion in one area, students can be frustrated when the subject builds on the area they never understood initially. I help uncover areas that need reinforcement so students can learn new topics with more ease and enjoyment. 

As a former elementary and middle school teacher and math curriculum designer, I have the experience and knowledge to guide students and give them the tools for success now and in the future. With my background as an academic coach, I help people achieve their goals, overcome obstacles, and make positive changes in their lives. I specialize in motivation and helping students understand why they are or are not motivated and give them practices to get where they want to be. I share tools that help interrupt old patterns in areas that can hold people back like test anxiety and low self-confidence, and I am thrilled to hear of the successes that come when students put these ideas into practice.  

Check out my calendar and find a time that works for you, and we can explore what it would be like to work together. I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
