Though I have a B.S. in Computer Science but the love and passion I have for Math made me to go back to school to major in Math. Now I am armed with a B.A. in Math (graduated with a 4.0 GPA and three math awards from Rutgers University) and the New Jersey Teacher of Mathematics Certificate. I also tutored Calculus and Algebra at Rutgers University Learning Center. I do not just have a profound knowledge of Math, I am also very skilled at communicating this knowledge to my students in ways they can relate to. I use everyday things to make Math come alive for my students. Presently I teach 8th grade Math as well as Algebra 1 in a public school district.
I understand that people learn in different ways and at different rates so I tailor my lessons to meet the particular needs and styles of my students. I am very patient and I motivate my students to do their best and more. I know the power of positive reinforcement and I utilize this to build student's confidence and self-esteem. I have helped many lose their fear of Math and come to truly enjoy the subject. This is attested to by the remarkable improvements in their grades.
