I am fascinated by how children develop numeracy and how their brains work. My teaching experience includes elementary teacher, middle school math teacher, interventionist, and special education teacher. I have taught in public schools, charter schools, and independent schools with seven years of classroom experience. My speciality is in numeracy development, having deeply studied how children develop this from early childhood through the middle years. After having my daughter in 2019, I decided to focus my efforts on mathematics tutoring and intervention on a one-on-one level. I have always loved working with students individually and in small groups, because it allows me to see how their brains (individually) think about numbers and build on that understanding. I tailor lessons that target misconceptions and areas of improvement, while aligning to the classroom instruction. I am also happy to work in collaboration with the classroom teacher to provide smooth transitions between the classroom and intervention. I write personalized lessons for students using the most recent mathematics education research and tools. I would be delighted to share more about my work and how I can help your child find success in math.
