I am an experienced math and science teacher. Math subjects taught include remedial math, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and advanced algebra. Science subjects taught include physical science and chemistry. I also taught computer science as a graduate student. I have training and experience in preparing students to take GED, ACT and SAT exams. My approach to teaching based on an inquiry method, which gets students involved in their own learning as opposed to lecturing the students, which tends to be one way communication. I challenge the student to understand how to get the answer to a problem, not just what is the answer. I question and challenge the student, to help them become more involved in their learning and better recognize their understanding of what they do know and what they need to learn.
