I grew up in Connecticut, both the eastern and central parts of the state.
I graduated with a BA in Political Science from Hobart/William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY in 1981. I earned a Masters in Teaching from Seattle University in 1999.
I understand through the grapevine on Bainbridge Island that I am rated one of the best math tutors in the area.
Ever since my own children were young, I have been interested in how children learn. As a math tutor, the most fascinating part is that no two students learn the same way. It's what makes my job fun!
Recently, I read The House at Tyneford, which is about a young, affluent, Jewish woman who leaves her home in Austria at the behest of her family and becomes a domestic in a manor home in Southwestern England. The story takes place at the beginning and during the Second World War.
I am always excited to teach the HUMT 161, 162, and 163. The best part for me is getting to have a relationship with my students throughout the academic year.
Show up! Be engaged! Treat every situation as a new opportunity to learn.
My office hour is on Friday, 9:30-10:30.
