I am an Arizona Certified Secondary Math teacher currently working at the Junior High level. I fully believe that everyone can be successful in math provided they're taught in a manner that makes it relative to them. I believe in focusing not just on "how" to do a problem, but why we do it. I put meaningful understanding behind a set of often confusing procedures to get to the answer.
I have worked with students on topics including 7th grade math, Prealgebra, Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus/Trigonometry, and have even worked with students on Calculus, though it has been a little while on that one. As most students tend to struggle with solving word problems, I usually work on problem solving techniques that include a "math-to-English, English-to-math" translation.
