Hey, students and parents, so you know my personality? I won the only teacher superlative this year "most likely to be a teenager." We will have fun but at the same time learn math! I got my passion for teaching while a Naval Instructor teaching Naval Academy and ROTC graduates. I taught them trigonometry for ship handling. What a blast to see the lights go on in the eyes of students when they get it! I went into the Navy Reserves in 1984 and retired in 1998. Once I was in the Naval Reserves I spent 24 years involved in the stock market as a VP of Investments to a portfolio manager. In 2009 I decided to obtain my math certification and begin to teach math. I currently have my Middle School certification for the State of Florida and am working on my High School certification. I spent about one year substituting and tutoring math. During the 2010-2011 school year I taught Precalculus, Geometry and Prealgebra at a private military school. During the 2011-2012 I taught Precalculus, Algebra II and College Algebra. This summer I would like to focus on tutoring and completing my High School certification. I truly love teaching and focus on hands-on problem solving during my tutoring sessions. I will teach the basic concepts and allow the student as much time to complete as many problems as necessary until the student can teach me the concept. I look forward to teaching, learning and having fun with you!!
