Hi! I am a high school math teacher who has also has experience teaching middle school math. I was in a middle school where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math to students. I believe in stressing the basic facts and having students know the basics before they can move on. In this small middle school, I was the only full time math teacher. In 2 years, I doubled the number of students in the "Advanced Proficient" range on the NJ ASK. I taught middle school mathematics and I also taught Algebra 1 to the exceptional math students in middle school.
After 3 years, I moved onto a high school and started to tutor students in many different math classes. I have taught General Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Trigonometry. I have also tutored and taught an SAT Math review class where one of my students improved 200 points on the math section! In addition to the SAT math section, I have also tutored students on the SAT II's, the ACT Math section, and the HSPA's.
My belief is that all students can learn and we just need to find in which way they learn best. I like to bring in real-world applications whenever I can to answer the "Where are we going to use this?" question. I have also coached a number of sports including football, soccer, basketball, baseball, and softball. I like to reach a level with the student so we both feel at ease working on the math and I explain it in a way so that they will understand it. I also have experience with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
I enjoy working with students. The best feeling I have is when I leave a tutoring session, and I know the student has a better understanding of the material now than they did before. I feel that with my easy going nature and a way to explain things so students will learn, students will gain more confidence in math and become better students.
I have played baseball until I was in 9th grade. I was a middle school coach for 3 years winning the division and also making it to the championship of the playoffs before we lost. I have been the girls varsity softball coach for a local public school the past 9 season and I have coached softball for the past 13 years. I feel that I have an excellent grasp of the baseball rules.
I have played basketball my whole life. I played on my high school varsity team and continued on into my adult life recreationally. I have coached 3 seasons of middle school basketball where we were division champions for 2 out of those 3 years (came in 2nd the other year). I also coached boys and girls at the high school level. I have been coaching for 11 seasons at the high school level, 3 seasons at the middle school level, and 4 seasons at the recreational level.
I have played and loved football my whole life. I played all throughout high school. I was also an assistant coach on a high school varsity team that lost in the state semi-finals. I feel I have a good knowledge of the game and I would be an asset to anyone who would like to learn about the game of football.
I have coached soccer for a total 13 seasons at the freshman and JV levels. I have coached both boys and girls. I have also coached recreation teams from 4 years old to 12 years old. I have coached for a total of 20 soccer seasons. I have coached players that have gone on and played in college. My grasp of the rules and my ability to see the field helps players to become better players and in turn they help their team.
