Well, to start things off, I have been a teacher for the past five years. I have primarily taught mathematics at a private Catholic school, but started out in public schools. One of the reasons I chose to pursue teaching mathematics was because it seemed there was a fear that students today could not learn math and that teachers were ineffective in the classroom.
I am proud to say that over the past several years, I have taught and witnessed a great deal of success in teaching students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. One of the skills that I have as a teacher is that I am a very verbal and communicative math teacher who throws a lot of theatrics into my lessons. I fully believe that students today can still learn math and can overcome their difficulties with this core subject. The key to this success comes from three parties. The parents, the teachers, and the students themselves, all of whom have to be willing to step up and contribute and I have seen the success that appears when these factors all play out.
Aside from teaching, I have also tutored one-on-one for the past four years and it is very pleasing to be able to work with a student and allow him or her to open up and state his or her mind regarding the understanding of specific math content. I find that once a student opens up, and tells you what he or she is thinking, then that's where I come in and try to correct any misunderstandings about any given material.
I am a licensed teacher in Middle School Mathematics in the State of "MA" and have also obtained my Master's Degree in teaching Middle School Mathematics (5-8).
As of right now, I have gone back to school to pursue a career in 3d animation/modeling and I have chosen to tutor on the side because I still enjoy teaching, especially any algebra related math content.
If you or your child is struggling with math, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you!
