Teaching is my calling! Teaching is my passion! I love teaching! I teach Middle School. I teach Sunday School! I teach Martial Arts! I love teaching.

I enjoy teaching middle school math and science. Are you having issues with proportions, percents, or equations? Is the Common Core getting you down ? I have done extensive training in the Common Core (6th and 7th Grades). I am very familiar with the shifts that the Core brings ! Need help making sense of that reading or social studies assignment? I can help! Have a big science project (mousetrap car, trebuchet, volcano)? Give me a call! In the middle school grades, I cover a wide range of subjects. My multiple subject teaching credential, certifies that I am competent to teach them material from K-8, my 15+ years of teaching experience has helped me to hone my teaching skills. Contact Me! Let's get started!
