I have been teaching and tutoring math since I was in college, and have been doing it professionally for the last 12 years. I enjoy math and I have many different ways to approach difficult subjects. I am NOT big on memorizing formulas, although there are a few that DO need to be memorized. I try to approach math from a logical perspective so that the formulas and functions make sense. I am especially fond of Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus (which is basically a review of all math learned to that point, plus a little Calculus thrown in), although I am most experienced with Pre-Algebra and Algebra. And of course there is Geometry, Discrete Math, SAT math prep, ACT math prep. etc. (gosh, I like them all). Regardless of the math, my students tell me (and their parents) that I make math fun and easy to understand (even if some still profess to hate it). OCC students! I've got the goods for Math 115! Give me a call, and let's set up a session, and see if we are a good fit.
I have taken and passed the CBEST. I have been teaching/tutoring math (elementary through Calculus) and substitute teaching (all subjects) for 12 years. I think my ability to do the math portion of the CBEST should be obvious based on subjects passed. While I rarely tutor other subjects besides math, I could. English is my first language. My father was an English and French teacher (retired) at Santa Ana College (my siblings and I learned to spell, speak and write properly). I speak three languages: French, Spanish and English which gives me a better understanding of grammar and word meanings.
