Well, I'll start with my passion. I absolutely love hands-on education and technology!
What does that mean? It means I love making all subjects fun and engaging. I love incorporating the use of technology, whether a laptop or a cell phone into the learning process. I believe it is important to teach a subject or concept in ways that will incorporate each student's unique learning style, be it visual (seeing), auditory (hearing/listening), and/or kinesthetic (touching/doing).
The 21st Century student in my experiences and opinion is a different student in that while we as parents grew up in a typographical society where writing was the primary means of communicating, our children, the 21st Century students, are and have grown up in a society that is very much technology focused, where communication occurs via email and text. I believe not using technology to educate and help facilitate the learning of concepts is simply a crime and puts our children at a significant disadvantage in the global society.
This will be my twelfth year working as an educator of students ages 5-18, but I have over ten years of experience as an educator of students ages 5-80. I graduated with a degree in Human Services from the University of Phoenix, and have passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) and the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET)- Multiple Subjects examinations. I have experience teaching/tutoring grades Kindergarten - 12 in the following subjects: Math (Basic - Algebra), Science (Earth, Physics, Chemistry, Biology), History (U.S. and World), and English (Grammar/Parts of Speech, Reading Comprehension, Writing). I also have experience teaching Korean international students English and Mathematics as well as teaching exam preparation for college entrance exams, SAT Math, GED, ASVAB, and CAHSEE.
I have worked as a classroom teacher's assistant and as a Parent Literacy Assistant while employed by the Los Angeles Unified School District; a Math/Science/English Language Arts tutor/instructor; as an instructor of students in a Gang Reduction Youth Development - GRYD Program; and as an Educational Programs Administrator, where I oversaw the instruction, curriculum, and compliance of all funded programs from school districts, cities, private foundations, and the state of California.
About Me: I am currently teaching/tutoring Math at a charter school, while tutoring privately elementary, high school, and adult students all levels of Math, English, the GED, and the ASVAB. I am a proud mother of a college sophomore majoring in Computer Science. Prior to moving to the Inland Empire 2.5 years ago, I served as the Program Administrator for a Math, Science, and Technology out-of-school time learning center in Los Angeles, where hands-on, experiential learning was the focus.
Now, how can I assist your child in becoming a future innovator?
The goal of Algebra 1 is the development of proficient algebraic skills and concepts. Specifically, students develop algebraic problem-solving skills in the areas of operations with real numbers, linear equations and inequalities, relations and functions, polynomials, algebraic fractions, and non-linear equations.
My experience or expertise comes from working the last five years with high school or adult school students seeking to pass the CAHSEE/GED Math and the Military Entrance Exam (ASVAB). Many of these students WERE students with limited understanding of algebra or algebraic concepts. Many had a deadline for passing these test (graduation, military, etc.).
My role as the Algebra 1 tutor is to not only discover the students skill deficiencies but to also to utilize the students learning styles to to further understanding of the algebraic concept. This customizing is the key to success for my students and for me as their tutor.
The goal of Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is to gauge what the the potential recruit already know about certain subjects, to measure the potential recruits general learning ability and vocational aptitude, and to predict the potential recruits performance in the eight academic areas: English (Paragraph Comprehension and Word Knowledge), Math (Arithmetic Reasoning and Mathematics Knowledge), Electronics Information, General Science, Mechanical Comprehension, Auto Shop, and Assembling Objects.
My experience or expertise comes from working the last five years with high school or adult school students seeking to pass the CAHSEE English and Math; GED subjects: English (Reading, Writing), Social Studies, Math, and Science; and the Military Entrance Exam (ASVAB). Many of these students WERE students with limited understanding of English (reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar) and Math (basic foundation, algebra concepts. Many had a deadline for passing these test (graduation, military induction, etc.).
My role as the ASVAB tutor is to not only discover the students skill deficiencies but to also to utilize the students learning styles to further develop their understanding of the concepts and skills. This customizing is the key to success for my students and for me as their tutor.
A primary goal of mathematics teaching and learning is to develop the ability to solve a wide variety of complex mathematics problems. Elementary Mathematics is when a students' problem solving and critical thinking skills are developed. It is during the elementary school years that the five core concepts that must be mastered are taught. They are the building blocks for all higher mathematics.
** Numbers - they are simply the building blocks of mathematics
** Place Value: Place value is the value given to the place or position of a digit in a number. The students understanding of the relationships between the numbers before and after the digit are foundational to arithmetic and algebra.
** Whole Number Operations - Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers represent the basic operations of mathematics.
** Fractions and Decimals - Extensions of whole numbers, requiring that students become proficient in their use as the four basic arithmetic operations.
** Problem Solving - Single step, two step, and multi-step problems (i.e. problems that require many steps to solve), especially word or story problems. Problem solving is the incorporation of the skills and concepts a student has learned and mastered to solve the problem.
The mathematics content area of the General Education Development Test contains 50 questions divided into two parts, and focuses on the following content areas:
Number operations and number sense (20-30%)
Measurement and geometry (20-30%)
Data analysis, statistics, and probability (20-30%)
Algebra, functions, and patterns (20-30%)
The content is equivalent to middle school Pre-Algebra and Geometry, as well as high school Algebra. This section also requires that one have a firm foundation of basic math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and integers).
As a Mathematics Tutor for the last 10 years, tutoring basic math through Algebra/Geometry weekly, to students ranging in age from 6-30, I am very familiar with teaching the skills and concepts of content area.
