### Who will be tutoring my child?

My name is Lindsay Summers. I am a mathematics teacher and a world traveler.

I have a Bachelors Degree in *Mathematics* and a Masters Degree in *Secondary Mathematics Education* – this means I have a very strong background in math, have a very deep understanding of the content, and my specialization is working with older students [5th grade through college] and upper-level math courses, but I can of course tutor students as young as, perhaps, 7 or 8 years old.

I taught for a few years in the state of Virginia, but then decided to expand on my pedagogy and take a look at what other teachers were doing all over the world. I traveled the world for over one year, then taught in Seattle, and Spain, and now currently in Norway.

Words can’t really describe me, so here’s a picture of where I’ve taught for over a decade:
