My emphasis is on student understanding as opposed to memorization. I've had 25 successful and rewarding years of experience teaching math and science at the high school level. I've worked in public schools and private schools. I also have an extensive background in working with elementary and middle school students in all subjects. I have a Master's degree from UCLA in education, and I've taught methods classes to beginning teachers.
Over the years I've used many strategies and techniques and I have a good sense of how to reach a variety students by tapping into individual learning styles. Many of my former students say that my approach, which emphasizes visual learning and use of physical models, has enabled them to do well in geometry. The fact that many of my students have gone on to become teachers is my best recommendation.
