I have a PhD in Mathematics Education and an MS in Math. I love working with students helping to alleviate the fear and overwhelm of math. I pride myself on getting to know students, creating a connection, and really listening to their concerns in order to build a relationship.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I started tutoring math when I was in high school. In 1999, I earned my BS in Mathematics Education and my Pennsylvania State teaching certificate in math for grades 7 - 12. During my graduate studies, I taught undergraduate mathematics courses. I began my full-time teaching career in 2006 teaching mathematics at a technical college. Since that time, I have slowly transitioned into online teaching. I now teach mathematics exclusive at an online university. I have over 20 years of tutor/teaching experience.
