I focus on the ‘why’ first, and then the ‘what’. I focus on making number sense. Working with me is a exercise in reason and thinking, not just arithmetic. I focus on methods that will allow students to be successful in math and in life.

Teaching since:
2005

My first teaching role was as a catechist at the age of 18. After getting a degree in chemical engineering, i went to work as a process engineer and established a mentor ship program at a school with low student performance.

After working as an engineer for 11 years, I chose to enter the field of education to spend more time with my children and other children in need. My goal has always been helping others. I look forward to helping you!

Shekkola taught Math and science to my three boys in middle school and her teaching was transformative, since they neither liked math nor were good at it before she began to teach them. All three went on to science careers and two went on to take advanced math courses. Once they joined her class they began to love Mathas did all the children in Shekkola's class - which is practically unheard of. I don't know what her magic is, but I am eternally grateful to her
