"My prior experience includes teaching and tutoring mathematics and science courses, and working at Harvard University, MIT, Boston College and MCPHS University. I hold a MS in Applied Mathematics and Physics as well as PhD in Physical Chemistry.

Over the last 20 years I have taught and tutored a variety of Math courses ranging from developmental mathematics to full calculus sequence, in different formats (large lecture, small groups, team-teaching, labs and online courses). In addition, I have served as a Learning Strategist and Math and Science Success Coach.

My teaching toolbox is filled with diverse instructional techniques and learning assessment methods, tailored to specific needs and context. Over the last 20 years I have had the opportunity to develop as a teacher through constant interaction with students at all levels, from middle school to college and post-degree, both in classroom and one-on-one settings.

My teaching philosophy is best described as student-centered, problem-based, and process-oriented. I believe my enthusiasm and passion for mathematics and science and my drive to present familiar material with new eyes and can engage and motivate students. Patience, organization and fundamental belief in students create a supportive environment in which they can build confidence and scientific ability and develop their potential and passion for learning.

What I find most rewarding in my career is the overwhelming positive and grateful feedback from students, who consistently attribute their academic success to my teaching style that goes above and beyond standard process with personalized approaches:

-Professor B. is an excellent instructor. She is completely invested in helping her students to learn and goes out of her way to offer tutoring and extra help. She is very kind and approachable. It is evident that she is passionate about mathematics and education. She is the best algebra tutor I have ever had." less...
