I have 14 years tutoring experience in core subjects at a local high school as a Teacher Consultant. My Teaching experience includes regular and special needs students K-12. I have Co-taught High School Geometry, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. My background includes a variety of experiences that enable me to tackle most problems in the educational setting.
My methods include examples and step by step approach to teach complex subjects. I use error analysis to help pinpoint and remedy problems students are having. A review of student performance and discussion with student and parents will help us develop a customized individual educational plan for successful performance in a targeted subject.
