I have been a remedial Math teacher at the high school level for the past nine years. I understand that not all students learn the same way, but that ALL students can learn. I have a relaxed and friendly approach that makes learning fun, and makes the time fly by.

While I have been a Math teacher, I hold a Multiple-Subject teaching credential. I love working with students on their papers and reports for all subjects, and understand how all the subjects tie together. You might be surprised to learn how a Geometric Proof is similar to a persuasive essay for English class...or that a double negative makes a positive in both Math and English.

If you'd like to discuss how I can help you or your student, please contact me.

I have a bachelor's degree in studio arts. I studied illustration and drawing extensively in school. I have a great command of line value and shading. I understand one, two, and three point perspective.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a California multiple subject teaching credential. My student teaching was in grades one and five.

Linear Algebra

I have worked as a math teacher and support provider for the past nine years, and have worked extensively with students involving linear equations. I understand the standard and slope-intercept formulas, as well as those of parabolic and step functions.

Social Studies

I am aware of, and fascinated by, the interrelation of history, economics, and geography. These are the factors that determine the daily lives of citizens, the forms of governance they choose, and the wars in which they engage. For this reason, the social sciences are more than just history lessons.

The work of contemporary writers such as Jared Diamond demonstrate that these factors continue to shape the lives of the citizens of the world and the world but we shall one day pass on to successive generations.

I hold a California multiple subject teaching credential which allows me to teach social studies through the eighth grade. But more than that, I am an independent student of civics and social philosophies. I have taken college-level courses in geography and comparative religions. And independently, I have sought to educate myself by reading works such as "Guns, Germs and Steel", "Collapse" by Jared Diamond, and "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn, as well as books about such topics as the Lewis and Clark expedition, World War II, and various presidential biographies by Stephen Ambrose.
