I am a patient teacher, tutor or academic coach who enjoys working with young people. It's important that students feel comfortable, are open to asking questions and are encouraged to do well.
As a multi-disciplinary teacher, I have a broad background in education and experience. I have been published in two journals and enjoy tutoring students in grammar, reading and writing. I have also worked as a legal secretary.
I am highly qualified in all the sciences and math. My undergraduate degree is in chemistry with a minor in mathematics. I have been exposed to discrete and logical thinking. As a professional high school teacher, I have been successful in raising PSAE test scores. I have worked with upper level and advanced students teaching trig based physics which uses geometry and algebra.
Working in industry has given me a results based philosophy as well as real world experience using math on the job from running regression analysis after heat degradation tests to using graphs and tables or figuring the range of error.
As a certified teacher, I am familiar with the various tests that are out there. For example, I am aware that the ASVAB test does not allow time for using a calculator. Therefore, it is important to understand the mathematical relationships so unrealistic answers can be eliminated.
