I have been tutoring and teaching high school math, SAT, ACT, PSAT, GRE and GMAT preparation for seven years. My approach is to create a positive and supportive environment to help students succeed. By breaking a problem down into smaller manageable steps, I can help identify and resolve issues that need improvement.
It's amazing how many students I have heard saying they're "just bad at math". But I've never met anyone who truly was. After determining where and why a student is struggling, whether it be fundamentals, problem solving approach or something else, I put together a plan that begins will small successes. Even a small success can do a lot for boosting confidence. And lack of confidence is often one of the things that holds students back from being successful in math.
I'm a certified Mathematics teacher - Texas, Grades 8-12 - and taught high school math with the Plano Independent School District for almost five years. Recently, I completed a contract position in math content development for an educational technology company. Prior to that I managed and tutored at an SAT ACT company in Plano.
Currently, I tutor and work part time as an instructor in GRE GMAT Quantitative at UT Dallas while also exploring careers in educational technology. I hold a B Sc in Electrical Engineering and have worked in the telecom and technology sector as a design engineer and program manager in Canada, Australia and the U.S.
