Private tutor in Philadelphia, PA
I attended the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for my Bachelors and Masters degree. I earned a 3.7 GPA in my undergraduate Mathematics degree and a 3.9 for MAT in Secondary Math Ed. I worked in the Math and Business tutoring center while I went there. I loved continuing my work as a tutoring as I went into college and then beyond. I have attended many math ed conferences over the last 12 years and I enjoy continuing to learn about math and specifically learning about how to teach math.
During my time as a teacher over the last ten years I have taught Algebra at all levels, Introduction to Geometry, Trigonometry, Geometry, PreAlgebra, Precalculus and Project Based Math. I love to incorporate technology into learning. We have some amazing tools and it makes subjects more relevant to students. I have been tutoring since I was in high school. I participated in guidance office run student-to-student tutoring. In college I tutored at a local vocational school and at an education center in a housing development. Then I tutored for the business and math center at my college. When I first graduated I tutored privately during the summer. I have tutored almost every level in mathematics from k-16. I am a certified teacher in three states so I have a variety of experiences that shape my teaching and tutoring approach. I have seen the transition to state exams in all three states so I am very aware of the new standards that are required as the curriculum for math courses is being updated across the US. I have currently background checks for all three required for a PA teacher. This includes FBI fingerprints, Child Abuse Background Check and Criminal History checks. I have the paperwork to support that I have no records with all three agencies.
