To put it simply, my goal is to work with my students for a short period of time. I am very efficient at diagnosing my students' problems, then implementing an effective plan for closing any gaps in their understanding. Many tutors are content to have students pay them for lessons for many months or even years, but one of the ways I measure my success is when my students no longer need my help. When that happens, I know I have done a good job. While I am very patient and happy to work with my students for as long as it takes, my end goal is to prepare all of my students to succeed in mathematics on their own. Sometimes it only takes a few weeks, and sometimes it can take several months, but I work quickly and effectively to give my students the skills, strategies, and confidence necessary to successfully take their math education into their own hands.
Over the past several years, I have been recruited and offered positions to teach math in some of the best public and private schools in New Hampshire. After gaining experience teaching in both middle school and high school classrooms, I decided to pursue my passion for teaching students in individual and small group settings. I am an especially patient teacher who is excited by opportunities to help struggling students, and I find their success the most rewarding. From the time I began my career as an intern, I have always been the kind of teacher who would randomly jump up on top of a desk in order to energize a classroom full of students, and I bring that same enthusiasm to all of my tutoring sessions today.
