I loved teaching math (pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry). I have been teaching high school math, intermediate school math, and elementary school children for 13 years. In addition, I home-schooled my children for 2 years. I enjoy working in the classroom; nevertheless, I prefer working one-on-one with students because it allows me to quickly figure out their learning style and I can tailor my instruction to what works for them. I believe that it is fundamental to teach math for understanding, that way they will always know it. My engineering training and background helped me become a critical thinker, be organized, and has helped be problem solver. I can help your child. I believe everyone can be successful at math, and my goal is to give students the tools and confidence they need to be successful.
I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Thank you!
I have 6 years of on the classroom teaching Algebra 1 experience. I am very familiar with the state standards and the areas that students have the most difficulty learning. I have a well liked personality and work well with kids. I enjoy teaching math.
Geometry is one of my favorite subjects. I find it fun and easy to explain. Unlike other math branches, Geometry is visual. Kids can see it. If someone knows geometry, it is very likely they'll use it as a tool in their lives. It sure comes in handy! It is one of those subjects that transfers over to many lines of work. I would sure like to have the opportunity to inspire your child and make him/her feel good about it.
As a professional math teacher, I know the CA Standards. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering. I am fully credentialed Mathematics teacher. I have 6 years of experience teaching math in the schools and 13 teaching school age kids.
