I am a retired teacher after 11 years of teaching honors algebra and social studies at the middle school level. I have always had a great rapport with both my students and parents.
I use color and comedy when getting my points across to my students. Math especially is fun and easy when taught the right way. I am unique, fun, and laid-back but very thorough and precise. Watch me make your day and start enjoying math and social studies now.
I am very good in all aspects of Algebra; it is my specialty. I was taught by some of the best instructors at Saddleback College in Algebra 1 & 2 through Calculus 1. I continued my math education at Cal State Fullerton and taught for 12 years.
Math portion of the CBEST: I gave 48 units in Math on my college transcripts giving me a minor in math at Cal Stare Fullerton. I also have taught Honors math for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in Middle School for 11 years. I also taught general math for 7th and 8th graders for those same 11 years. I also passed my CBEST with a perfect score on the 1st try in both parts (Math and Writing).
I teach all elementary school subjects with a specialty in mathematics and social studies. I have a teaching credential in both math and social studies. I was a substitute teacher at numerous elementary schools prior to accepting my first full time job in middle school. I was originally on track for my multi-subject credential before getting my two single subject credentials. I also passed all WyzAnt elementary subject exams.
I spent 5 years as a Toastmaster and have spoken in front of large crowds as a public school teacher and department chair.
Teaching FIFA Rules and Regulations for Referees and how to run a practice for coaches: I was a certified National 1 referee for AYSO Region 84 and went through the B Coach Certification Program. I have coached Club Level for 8 years and AYSO for over 20 years along with coaching boys and girls high school varsity teams. I also am a CIF Certified Referee.
Teaching students how to study more effectively: I took several study skills classes at Saddleback College and taught a class as an elective in middle school on how to study and take notes effectively.
