In addition to being a full-time wife and homeschooling mom, I am a math enthusiast! (I'm also a classic literature fan, budding seamstress, and rampant coffee consumer.) I was born and raised in the Monadnock Region of NH and love raising my own family here. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since the fourth grade, and thrive when sharing my love of learning. I strive to tailor my teaching style to each individual student's strengths and weaknesses.
I graduated, cum laude, from Keene State College with a BA in Mathematics, and a concentration on Secondary Education. I have two years of classroom teaching experience at the middle school level, and five years of private tutoring experience. I am glad to provide references if needed. In addition to this, I have had the privilege of teaching my own three children over the past four years, covering pre-school through first grade.
If your child needs a helping hand with math, or you feel like you could benefit from brushing up on your skills, let me help!
