I am an experienced and dedicated mathematician and teacher. I started as a college tutor while completing my Bachelors in Mathematics at Northeastern Illinois University. Since becoming a high school math instructor, I have worked with various after school and summer school programs. The most relevant to some of your needs would be the College Board Readiness course taught to high school juniors to increase ACT scores.

On a more personal note, I believe passionate educators take on additional responsibilities to further their own learning. That is why I have continued my education through professional development, achieving The National Board status for teaching mathematics for adolescents and young adults. I believe all students can learn. I can assess students' needs and address what each one needs on an individual level. With one on one instruction, success is achieved.

ACT Math, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus, Discrete Math, Geometry, Linear Algebra, Logic, Prealgebra, Precalculus, Probability, Trigonometry
Homeschool:
