"I have an AS degree in Math and Science from Mount San Jacinto College in CA. I also have a BS degree in Mathematics and trained as a teacher in the UK. I have tutored students for the last fifteen years. I am a member of the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics). I REALLY enjoy what I do! Working with young people is fantastic!

I am able to offer tuition in basic math, geometry, Algebra I and II, pre-calculus. I can also help students prepare for Math SATS too: I can provide plenty and plenty more resources to aid their progress.

I believe that every individual has potential if taught by the right teacher for him or her.

Every child enjoys individual care and attention - I haven't come across any student who doesn't! Thus, I have high expectations of all students I teach and expect them to show a willingness to learn! I instill motivation, enthusiasm and confidence in my students (we also have a "good laugh" sometimes). I am able to employ a variety of teaching and learning techniques so that I can determine which ones work best for individual students and I tailor lessons to suit them. I enjoy helping students develop cognitive skills: encourage students to investigate ideas and understand fundamental concepts. I also encourage students to ask questions (no matter how stupid the questions seems to them-no question is stupid!). We all make mistakes when learning new material, so just keep practicing!! I also emphasize the use of key mathematical terminology. I am also very down to earth, patient and understanding (I am always available to talk with students about different issues.

I was a substitute teacher and worked with SPED students. I can help them with basic math and English. I have experience working with children with Down syndrome, mild autism and hemophilia. I have worked with students from Montville, Norwich, Waterford and East Lyme School districts.

Please note: I do not complete ALL homework for students but will teach students the concepts needed in order to answer homework que" less...
