EducationCUNY Lehman College - BS, Mathematics , CUNY City College - MS, Education
ExperienceI graduated from Lehman College with a double major in Psychology and Mathematics, and earned a Master of Education from City College. While in college, and I taught math for four years in the New York City school system. My tutoring strengths are in Algebra 1 and 2, elementary math, and precalculus, and I am also very adept at teaching problem solving skills, encouraging in students the ability to utilize various approaches to reach the solution to complex scenarios. I teach students to make use of models and I use a form of show and tell approach to make learning difficult material manageable and rewarding. I encourage my students to consider multiple ways to reach a solution to help them discover the most effective learning styles best suited to their individual needs. I remain highly organized in all of my tutoring and strive to impart that same habit to my students, helping them to be mentally prepared through mini lessons on our subjects to ensure a full understanding. I encourage students to test different ideas and approaches to problems and stay open and accepting of criticism and suggestions. Outside of class, I like cooking, reading, and going to movies.
