Welcome to Easy as Pi where my goal is to help students gain confidence, increase knowledge and learn success strategies for their classwork and for the ACT exam. I am dedicated to building positive relationships with students and providing them with the encouragement, assistance and support they need to allow their confidence and competence to grow.
I am a mother of a wonderful high school daughter and three dogs ranging in size from 20 to 200 pounds. I enjoy exercising, being outdoors and spending time with my daughter - even if it means I have to go to the mall to do so. I LOVE tutoring! I have had so many terrific kids over the years, each of whom has stolen a piece of my heart as they left high school to become awesome adults. I feel lucky to still be in touch with so many of them!
Over the last 20 years, I have developed a successful results based approach to ACT prep that starts with establishing a goal score and designing a customized practice plan to achieve that goal. While still reviewing necessary content, the focus is on test taking strategies, familiarity with format, and design of a customized time management plan to help each student reach their goal score.
My district 196 teaching experience and the ongoing communication that I maintain with the faculty enable me to stay current with curriculum. That way I can help students with Physics and all levels of Math in a way that supports what they are learning in class, providing the knowledge and confidence they need to be successful on tests, quizzes and in future courses.
