Experienced educator eager to help improve your math skills - in and around Decatur!

Methodology

I approach each session non-judgementally, taking care to make sure each topic is thoroughly understood before starting on the next. As my background is in psychology and I have plenty of experience working with children who present a number of behavior problems, my sensitive, patient and thoughtful approach to children in general is well incorporated into my teaching style.

Background

I am a recent graduate from the University of Washington (2017) who has years of experience working with children and teens in a motivational/behavioral capacity. I also have some teaching experience and am eager to begin sharing my passion for math with you or your child!
