As a licensed mathematics, grades 8-12, teacher in Massachusetts I know the importance of having a good base of mathematical skills. Maybe you are a student, or a parent of a student, that struggled through or is going into Algebra I. It's important to make sure your skills are up to par before the school year starts.
I began my teaching career in the fall of 2010. After receiving a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Connecticut's TCPCG program and receiving a CT mathematics, grades 7 - 12, teaching certification I began teaching as a math intervention teacher in Hartford, CT. I would pull struggling students from their social studies classes to work on mathematical skills that gave them difficulty. While teaching pre-algebra and algebra to these students I realized more often than not, it was their previous mathematical deficiencies that kept them from learning the new material. You need to have a good base of skills to build on if you are to be successful in mathematics.
After teaching mathematics in Hartford, CT for two years I moved up to Massachusetts and got married. I then obtained my Massachusetts teaching certificate in December of 2012 and took up a position teaching Algebra I and Pre-Algebra classes in Danvers, MA while another teacher was on maternity leave. In Danvers I noticed the same thing. Those students who struggled lack a strong base of mathematical skills. As a teacher I would differentiate to varying levels of ability in my class, but with a 53 minute period there is only so much material that can be covered.
I offer my services as a tutor to those students who need extra time outside of the classroom. As a certified teacher I know the standards that they have to meet and what they will be tested on. If you are a student, or a parent of a student, who is weak in certain areas I strongly encourage you to seek assistance prior to the start of the school year and start the year off on a strong note.
