Before I entered the field of education, I worked as a manager for an airline, and I also ran several of my own businesses. My journey of becoming a teacher started in 2010. Since then, I have studied for and successfully passed two content area examinations and taken the requisite teacher preparation coursework with American International College. The master teachers, are those teachers that have studied their craft and spent many hours honing their skills. My real-world and private industry experiences help me to better relate to my students where mathematics can be used. I look forward to constantly learning from my colleagues and my students.
It is my desire to develop in my students an appreciation and application for the math that we are studying. I know that each student is not going to love math they way that I do, however, I do want them to be able to understand and apply what they know. For those students who have "never been good at math", I would challenge you to say that you have never had a teacher who explained it or had it make sense for you.
I will work to help you understand the math that you are currently studying in school and help you to get caught up in areas that you feel you are falling behind in. Together, we will make connections with all of the building blocks of math, and continue to move forward.
To ensure that students are successful, I strongly recommend a quiet, comfortable place to meet for lessons. To accomplish this, I am willing to meet at the local library for a neutral location, or, to sit right at your dining room table. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to have fun with math!
