I am a retired high school math
teacher, with 6 years of classroom experience who works best with both nontraditional learners and 'high performance' students. Sessions provide instruction that matches the course requirements and school expectations. Alternatively, I offer special students a broad and rigorous math seminar. Tutoring sessions are available Monday - Friday in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Some of my students were described as 'struggling', 'confused by classroom instruction', 'unsuccessful with college tutors' or 'having a different learning style', we overcame these false starts with A's and B's (check the feedback section). I have personal experience students categorized as have gifted, dyslexia
, ADD / ADHD
issues. My student's parents tell me I'm "Professional and Patient", "Excellent, expert" and "engaging and easygoing".
Sessions are oriented towards the student's needs. Attention is given to 1) remediation - learning supporting skills, 2) reinforcement - review topics covered in the classroom/text and 3) enrichment - providing links to real world examples and uses of mathematics
. I demonstrate standard calculator techniques, highlight anticipated testing questions, and proven study skills
that correspond to the student's preferences and learning style.
I develop a student's confidence while avoiding the 'by the numbers' or a cookbook approach to learning math. We focus on understanding and comprehension to achieve rigor.
I enjoy teaching algebra
, discrete math
, advanced functions
and modeling, college math, SAT Math
and basic statistics
. Prior to teaching, I had a variety of roles in information technology.
