My name is Ryan and I am a math teacher at Clear Brook High School. I have taught math for 5 years, and have tutored many high school and college level math students. I actually tutor math daily to all the kids who end up in ISS, or in school suspension at Brook. I have taught Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, AP Stats, and Pre-Calculus. I also coach volleyball and baseball, because I enjoy seeing the success that students can have while playing sports that they love. I love to teach, and I love math!
As a teacher, I like to use technology as much as possible. I can use multiple programs and methods to help illustrate concepts. I have had a lot of success working with students because I am organized and work one on one with all of my students. I feel like I am more able to help them when I can find out more about their learning style. Every learner is different! It takes communication and a relaxed atmosphere that opens up the mind for successful learning. I promise that I will do everything that I can to create a positive learning atmosphere and do all that I can to reach the math success that we both want!
Testing in math has always been one of my strong points. I got a 31 on my own ACT math test. To be a teacher, I had to take the Praxis II exam, on which I scored in the top 15%. On the GRE, the test I needed to take for my masters, I nearly scored perfect. If you give me a chance, I know that I can help your child find ways to get a better score on their tests. Please consider me for the job!
What a fun time that Algebra is in the life of a teenager! I remember taking it in junior high. I was so scared because all I heard about it was how hard it was. I had one of my most influential teachers that year, and I grew to love math. I now teach math, largely thanks to my Algebra 1 teacher. I promise that I can have the same affect on your child, so please consider me for the tutoring position! I have taught Algebra for multiple years, and I love it! Math is so important in life, for many reasons, and Algebra is the beginning.
Algebra 2 is so important to understand, because so much builds on it later in the schooling years. I can help build the student up for not only success in this year, but in the years to come. Please consider me to help out during this critical year in your education!
I am the JV Baseball coach at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, TX. I have coached for two years.
I have taught Geometry for three years at Clear Brook. I believe in a straight forward approach that helps the student to recognize what needs to be solved, and then helps them to solve the problem. I can also help with the algebra that will be a part of the geometry. Geometry is one of my favorite subjects, and is so useful and practical for real life scenarios! Please consider me and I know that I will be able to help your child understand and appreciate math. I will also make learning fun!
Whether you are in junior high or high school, Pre Algebra is important. It gives you the understanding that will be built on throughout your high school and college career. I have taught algebra long enough to know how to help your student and prepare them for what comes next! Please consider me!
Precalculus is one of the coolest classes! I had the best teacher when I took it in high school, and I have loved it ever since. I taught it 5 years ago, but since moved here to Texas and was never given the chance to teach it, due to seniority. I teach at Clear Brook, where I have taught Algebra 1 and Geometry, AP Stats, and now PLTW or Engineering classes. I know that I can help your child to appreciate math, and even help turn math into one of their favorite subjects. Please consider me for the tutoring position! I know that I can help!
I have tutored so many kids while being a math teacher. I also have tutored college kids as well, while I was in college. I have taken, and scored high on, many major tests, like: the ACT, SAT, GRE, and the Praxis. I have also taken the math teaching certification exams. I have prepared for all these tests, and know how to help you prepare for your test. Please consider me! I know how to help, and to make learning fun!
In college, I majored in math education and was two classes away from minoring in Spanish Education. I lived in Argentina for two years, and I loved it! I can read, write, speak and perform translation services in Spanish. Please consider me for any tutoring. I won't let you down!
I am the Freshman B volleyball coach at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, TX. I have coached for 3 years.
