#### Career Experience

I have been teaching mathematics since 1991! That's a long time! I taught middle-school mathematics for 6 years. I loved doing that. The kids were so energetic and eager to learn. I took a year off to be with my newborn baby but then got right back to work; this time teaching part-time at the college level. I have taught statistics, trigonometry, college-algebra, even mathematics for healthcare, and so many more. I went on to get my PhD and I learned so much about how to be a great teacher. We really focused on the stepping stones required for students to learn and also listening to our students to find out their thought processes. That is what I promise to do as your tutor.

#### I Love Tutoring Because

I love that "AHA" moment. It is so cool to be able to help a student finally "get it"! I am really good at walking students through problems step by step and explaining the WHY's of mathematics rather than just the WHAT's. When students really grasp a topic conceptually as well as procedurally, they will never forget it. And the result is better grades on tests. I love to hear it when a student comes back and lets me know that they got a grade that they never dreamed of attaining... a grade made possible through the help of tutoring. I love math and I would love for others to love it but in most cases... I'm just so happy if they don't hate it anymore! Its a good feeling.
