Gihan’s subjects

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, Trigonometry

Algebra 1

For 4 months I tutored a student who was taking Algebra 1.

Also, as part of my graduation requirements for my Masters in Teaching, I had to take the CLEP Exam for Algebra. This allowed me to refresh my algebra skills.

Algebra 2

For the first half of the 2011-2012 school year I was an assistant teacher in an 10th grade Algebra 2 classroom. My responsibilities included creating warm-up exercises and observing during the first two periods while the teacher of record instructed. For the last three periods of the day I modeled her techniques.


As a chemical engineer I have a strong background in chemistry. I have taken several college-level chemistry classes including general chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and modern techniques in chemistry.


As part of my graduation requirements for my Masters in Teaching, I took a class entitled "Geometry for Lead Teachers." This class allowed me to learn different tactics to teaching students the concepts of geometry.
