I have concentrated on preparing students for the ACT for the last three years. I have worked with them on time management as well as test taking strategies. Student scores have improved upon their re-exam.

As a former Teacher of the Year (2008-2009), I believe in teaching students in a manner that they learn. Since not everyone is a auditory learner, I use visual and hands-on learning to help the lesson stick. I make sure that you understand what the problem is asking you to find and then help you find the information needed to find that answer.

This is my 10th year teaching. I have 7 years experience in high school math, 1 year in middle school all subjects, and two years teaching 5th grade. I currently teach at an areas high school Algebra 1A. My students like that I can teach any math problem in at least 4 different ways. I have several years of experience teaching students with learning disabilities and students that struggle in math.
