## Profile

Meet your new math tutor! I earned my Masters degree in Mathematics in 2009 from Case Western Reserve University. With over ten years combined experience as a math tutor and college mathematics instructor, I know my way around the high school and college mathematics curriculum. In that time I've helped many students sharpen their understanding of mathematics, and I'm looking forward to working with you as well!

I have worked with and successfully helped and taught students in many subjects, including Algebra, Statistics, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus, as well as more advanced courses such as Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.

I also have "real-world" experience using mathematics in the banking industry as an Interest Rate Risk Analyst.

Whether you need help preparing for a test, feel like you are seriously struggling with your course or just need a few pointers, my goal is to work with you to build both your confidence and competence with mathematics. Let's get started!
