My name is Perry B., and I am a certified high school and middle school math teacher and a certified special educator. I have been teaching for the last five years. My prior career has been in information technology.
I like to make the subject fun and less intimidating for my students.
I understand how to relate to students and bring real world experience into my math lessons. This has been especially useful with the implementation of Common Core Standards for algebra 1.
I recently obtained my master's degree in education from Belmont University. I am a Fellow of "The New Teacher Project" a national organization known for their highly selective recruitment and training of teachers.
I have a passion for helping students learn and succeed. I believe my ability to relate math concepts to simple real-world problems takes the anxiety and mystery out of learning that some students may have developed.
If you hire me, you can be sure that I will listen to your goals and needs, and develop a specific plan that is based on your goals and the student's learning style. I am an expert at selecting and applying learning and teaching strategies that are researched based and peer reviewed. My students always learn because of my patient and thorough approach which always connects to their prior knowledge as our base. A specialty of mine is working with students with ADHD and learning difficulties.
Look forward to hearing from you and I wish you the best with your child's education.
