I have been a teacher for 32 years with 25 years experience teaching middle school and high school mathematics. I have worked with students with all mathematical abilities. I have led workshops in mathematics for other teachers and have served at the Los Angeles County Department of Education during the Math A series. I can readily adapt to all types of learners such as visual, kinesthetic, auditory, etc. I was a physical education major in undergraduate school but did post master's work in mathematics. I decided to pursue math because it was the subject that gave me the most difficulty in school. I wanted to present math in different ways so that students would have an increased chance of understanding mathematical concepts. Recently I have been tutoring 8th grade students who are getting ready for high school Algebra l as well as 7th grade, high school Algebra, and fifth grade. My main focus this year was preparing student's for the high school ISEE and HTSP tests.
