As a former middle/high school math teacher, I am very effective helping struggling students to succeed in math. My expertise ranges from students just learning how to multiply and divide to those who struggle with algebra concepts or are preparing to take the SAT. My master's degree is in Math Education. My doctorate is in Quantitative Research Methods (e.g., statistics, SPSS). While there is role for memorization, I believe in focusing on working with students to develop an understanding of the mathematics.
Providing a solid foundation in mathematics is crucial. But for some students, math can seem challenging. I am able to work with students to UNDERSTAND the mathematical concepts important in elementary school especially as it relates to multiplication, division, fractions, and identifying patterns.
In my career, I regularly use MS Excel spreadsheets to organize data and prepare various types of charts (e.g., bar charts, line graphs). Using Excel formulas, I am able to provide summary information on these data.
As a former middle/high school math teacher, I have taught pre-algebra for 7th and 8th grade as well as high school students. In addition to teaching, I have tutored students across the breadth of math topics from multiplication/division to fractions to algebra and geometry. Therefore, I have a deep understanding of the math concepts that are critical for success in the subsequent math courses.
As a former middle/high school math teacher, I have vast experience with the math content on the SAT. When needed, I am able to break the content down into manageable pieces such that the student can understand the content and be successful. I believe that student, with the right supports and guidance, can be successful in mathematics.
At the college level, I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in statistics. These courses have focused on descriptive and inferential statistics (e.g., t-tests, ANOVA, regression, Chi-square). Throughout my career over the last 20 years, I have conducted various statistical analyses as well as provided written descriptions of the results.
