Hi Students and Parents,
I majored in mathematics; therefore I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I have about 11 years of experience teaching and/or tutoring math courses to all age groups. I particularly specialize in elementary math, middle school math, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, and trigonometry.
My approach to teaching math is to break a problem down into its simplest form while using dry erase boards, visual aids, and technology (calculator, computer, iPad) where appropriate. I model how to solve the problem first along with explanations then ask my students to solve similar problems. Repetition, repetition, repetition. Another technique I also use is once my student has shown some level of understanding, I ask them to teach it back to me. My motto is "If a person can teach it, then they know it." At the end of the lesson I check for understanding by using a close-out problem(s) and assign a problem(s) for homework.
I require the student's math school curriculum and homework assignments so I can help the student keep up with the class or in some cases be ahead of the class.
I do provide progress reports and/or periodic assessments.
I never charge for a lesson the parent or student is not completely satisfied with. I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice. Make-up sessions are available.
