Who am I?
I am a professional educator with proven skills and methods. I have a Master's degree in Biology with concentration in Microbiology. I have a passion for teaching and have been doing so for over 10 years. I believe in quality of education rather than quantity.
What makes me unique?
I am very patient with students and help them understand the material rather than have them memorize it. There is a big difference between learning and memorizing; if taught properly one can retain information for years to come. I have come across a variety of students from all vasts of life. I make realistic goals for my students, so that they can excel. I have worked with hyper-active children and had success in helping them attain their goals.
How do I teach?
I have proven methods that work for students and make sure that they learn by understanding rather than memorizing. I work as a team and incorporate feedback from the student as to what is working and what is not. This allows me to change methods to achieve better results. I teach one on one and in a group setting.
I tutor all levels from middle school up to college.
Math- pre-algebra, algebra I and II, business math calculus and algebra based, statistics, college math, college algebra, discrete math, calculus.
