I realized I wanted to teach math when I was 15 years old; it was easy for me to learn the techniques and ideas. I wanted to share the world of math and numbers to help others realize their importance. I taught math for 28+ years to 9-12 students, which includes the topics of alg. I, alg. II, geometry, pre algebra, basic math, and trig. I am very capable of tutoring calculus, discrete math, probability, and statistics. I use all techniques available to enhance the learning process; I try to make it fun and interesting; computers, puzzles, group-team teaching, question and answer, lectures, quick quizzes, essay, and researching are the most successful strategies I have used. Math can be frustrating; however, I make it exciting, easy, and significant. I have tutored many students over the years and have had great success at their learning and enjoying the world of mathematics. Most people love some kind of activity such as television, music, video/computer games, you tube; but me, I love math and desire to help those who are frightened or disheartened by the word math.
