My name is Carla and I have spent the last four years teaching Pre Algebra & Algebra 1 to students in a charter in the School District of Philadelphia. During my four years I have helped many of my most struggling students make significant gains on school issued benchmarks and state mandated tests (the PSSA & the Keystone Exam). I believe in teaching students the reasons why numbers work the way they do. This conceptual understanding goes a long way in applying mathematical concepts to higher level courses and problems.
