You can find any math topic to review – these tend to be dry, but straightforward, and have the most variety of topics


You can find any math topic to review – you may have to search through different ones to find instructors you like better but one instructor may not have all the topics you need.

These are good for end of year reviews since you can’t specify particular topics but you can always do previous year’s material if you want a comprehensive review.


This is my eleventh year of teaching, nine of which was at a high school in Fairfax County.  It is my second year teaching at Holy Family.

I great up outside of Philadelphia.  I got my BS in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University, my MS in Engineering from The Catholic University of America.  I worked as a radar engineer with various government contractors for ten years before getting my teaching certification from George Mason University.

My family belongs to Holy Family parish.  My husband, Kevin, and I live in Dale City with our three kids.  Carolyn attends John Paul the Great.  She and I sing together with the Praise Choir on Sundays.  I love seeing my kiddos at Mass.  Andrew and Megan are in 4th and Pre-K at Holy Family.  I enjoy sewing, baking, and crossword puzzles (the ones with the strange themes).
