I have a masters degree in math education and experience teaching and tutoring students in middle school, high school, and college.
My success in teaching mathematics stems to a large extent from my understanding that many students have missed certain concepts in their prior math classes. This makes it much more difficult for them to master the current lessons. Often what is needed is to find what students do understand and fill in the gaps in their knowledge or skills, enabling them to make significant progress in a relatively short time.
I take particular pride in helping students who have been discouraged by their math classes to believe in their abilities and to succeed where they previously have given up.
I have taken (and passed with A grades) several masters level courses in special education that relate to teaching students with ADD/ADHD. Courses include:
Curriculum Development in special education
Classroom Intervention and Sped. strategies
Theory of Learning and Cognitive Development
Behavior Disorders in School Children
I have also taught in a high school for students with behavior and emotional problems, which included many students with ADD/ADHD. These students present challenges in achieving engagement and focus and respond well to one-on-one instruction without the distractions of the classroom.
