I'm a High School Math teacher who works primarily with struggling math students as a Learning Specialist in Newark, NJ. I live in Jersey City, and spent time teaching in Phoenix, Arizona, with Teach For America.
I've taught 6th grade through 12th grade, primarily in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry. Additionally, I have spent some time teaching teaching Middle School Special Education, primarily working with students with specific learning disabilities, such as dyslexia and dyscalculia. Providing visuals is a huge emphasis of mine so that students can understand concepts before understanding the rules of math.
Although I teach math, I have been trained for teaching struggling readers as well with various phonics-based programs.
This past year, I won the "Improvement" Award for my charter network in KIPP for my focus on improving learning and teaching practices at my school. Let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to contact me.
