I am an experienced, certified teacher who taught for 13 years at a local east Cobb high school as well as in other states. I have a masters in Math, and am certified in social studies. I have a gifted endorsement as well. I realize students learn in different ways so I must adapt my presentation to how they learn as well as provide multiple chances for their success. I have tutored one-on-one and in small group situations previously.
