Common Core understands the importance for students to be successful in math and science. It requires students to have a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Unfortunately, weak students have a problem bridging the gap between their background knowledge and future concepts. I provide visual and hand-on activities to help students to conceptualize math and science concepts.

I have taught fifth grade math, and science for 12 years. I have previously taught 7th and 8th math and science during summer school.
