I have taught Algebra 1 for many years. My experience is with all levels but I am drawn to students with learning differences. I can build students' confidence in themselves and help them be better problem solvers. I can identify skill gaps and work to fill those to improve performance in algebra.
I have taught students grades K - high school. I also have many years experience writing math activities and assessments for elementary. I have a special interest in early number development as well. I believe that we must help students acquire number sense.
I taught 5th grade math for about 16 years in Plano. During that time I was a math specialist for the district and was involved in curriculum writing and mentoring teachers. I have also taught Kindergarten and 4th grade.
I am currently teaching geometry. I love geometry because it requires logical reasoning. It is a very visual subject and I am a very visual learner and teacher. Geometry problems are based on figures and real-world applications. I can help students make sense of those postulates and theorems!
As a high school algebra and geometry I know what skills are required to be successful in high school. I have experience teaching a pre-algebra class and have tutored kids to get them ready for algebra.
I can help students prepare study material and practice study skills to prepare for tests. My expertise is in math of all levels. I believe that prior knowledge frequently gets lost when learning new material. By supporting new learning with acquired skills, students do better on tests!
I have given the TAKS test for many years to high school students. I understand the objectives and structure of the test. I teach high school and enjoy students of that age. I also have experience with teaching students with learning differences and have worked with ESL students.
