I have had great success with students who are math-phobic. I am friendly, student focused, and able to differentiate instruction nicely. Wherever you are, algebraically, I will help.
I enjoyed being a math teacher at West Philadelphia Catholic High School who is still awestruck by the power of the unsung heroes of education--our very hardworking, self-sacrificing parents. They are often minority, working-class poor, single parents or grandparents who believe strongly in education and continue to invest in private urban education even now-- against this bleak economic backdrop. They proceed on faith and the hope that their sacrifice will result in the next generation of contributing members of our society.
I have long admired, and developed, outreach projects, here in the Delaware Valley as the most efficient way to connect the mutually beneficial members of our rich educational, cultural and support network. I have lived out my commitment to, and recognition of the unique possibilities for educational achievement by emotional support throughout my professional work as a Philadelphia Public School teacher, where I developed and particularized a Title I Improvement of Math program to the needs of the stakeholders at a high school based on stringent eligibility data, and by my recent Master's degree in Multi-Cultural Education from Eastern University.
Tutoring in WyzAnt is another less formal way for teachers like me to connect one-on-one with elements in our community to differentiate the approach to comprehensive education here in Philadelphia.
