I enjoy math and have taught and tutored it and science for over 20 years in college and in the public schools of NYC. My love for teaching math happened when I realized my ability to make it plain and understandable to people who had enormous anxiety about it. My students have come from a very diverse population and range in age, with varying backgrounds and knowledge of math. Therefore, I actively teach and encourage my students to express their answers algebraically, graphically or by drawing pictures and in word sentences, as needed.
My patient, polite and easy-going manner coupled with my ability to model various methods for understanding and “seeing” things, accentuates my success as a teacher and tutor. My teaching strategies include giving a mixed review of problems. I also always have the student model and explain what they've learned, showing their process for deriving an answer. In this way, I know that they fully understand and will hopefully accomplish learning other math concepts more easily.
I am fulfilled the most about teaching math when students who do not like it, recognize their ability to learn it well. That they may gain a better appreciation for their ability to do it and perhaps use it, hopefully encourages their love for learning, especially with math.
