I've taught math, particularly algebra and geometry, for over a decade, working at all grade levels but with particular attention to middle schoolers. I've run summer academies and math enrichment programs, along with normal classroom, after-school and tutoring classes. I use innovative methods that help students comprehend concepts, not just tricks and formulas, so that algebra makes sense. I have tools (including physical models) that can help students overcome what a colleague calls "the math wound," and turn fear into enthusiasm, comprehension and mastery.
