Nine years in education have gone by quickly! I thoroughly enjoy my position as a middle school math teacher. Working with kids allows me to continue my education and always find new methods to enhance students' understanding.

I believe that all students can do math; it is more difficult for some but they can do it! I focus first on the language of math which helps build initial confidence, if the question is understood you are well on your way to the solution. I then focus on strengthening current skills, again to build confidence, and use hands on activities to process knowledge and master new skills.

I love tutoring as a part-time effort and have made long lasting relationships with many of my clients. I look forward to adding new clients to this list!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have experience with a variety of curricula for Algebra 1 including College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM), Glencoe, Pearson, Big Ideas Math. I have taught Algebra 1 for six years.

Study Skills

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with education focus. I have taught for 9 years and have been actively involved in the Response to Intervention process for 6 years. I have participated in many organization and study skill interventions with students. I have familiarity with a variety of methods for study and organization skills especially using AVID philosophy, Cornell Notes, as well as 21st Century techniques such as flash card apps, games, and use of electronic calendars. AVID requires one binder for all classes, other methods are color coded subjects and all methods require use of some type of planner.

Begin with reviewing your understanding of what is the slope of a line?  Think of places in real life where the word slope is used,  for example a ski slope.  What does that look like?  When you translate that into math what you are looking for is the steepness of a line.  For...
