I have a bachelor's degree in education from Texas Wesleyan University, and over 10 years of public school teaching experience. I have taught at the primary, secondary, and collegiate levels. I have a master's certificate in gifted education from the University of North Texas, and I enjoy working with students of all ability levels. I work very hard to customize lessons to fit a student's educational abilities and needs.
As an educational psychologist, I have completed many hours of advanced coursework, and I am well-versed in the current research regarding learning, memory, and instructional practices. I utilize this knowledge to identify underlying processing difficulties that may be interfering with learning, and to design a specialized strategy for achieving the desired results. In addition, I have a thorough understanding of effective study skills, organization, and test taking skills. Sometimes, this is all a student needs in order to achieve success in the classroom.
I have completed all coursework for a PhD in educational psychology, which requires advanced coursework in learning, memory, attention, instructional practices, and special needs. I have past teaching experience with gifted students who have learning disabilities such as ADHD and dyslexia. I also raised two children who were both diagnosed with ADHD, so I understand the challenges of parenting these students.
Algebra is probably the most important math course that a person ever takes. Why is this? Because all subsequent math courses build upon the basic skills and concepts of algebra. Having a good foundation is important. I have been helping students with algebra for many years, and it is one of my favorite things to teach. I have studied mathematics education at the University of Cincinnati and online at Western Governor's University. I have been a member of the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics, and participated in national conferences. I am committed to helping my students see the beauty of mathematics, relating it to their everyday lives, and experiencing success.
I have a degree in elementary education from Texas Wesleyan University, as well as a grade 1 - 8 Texas teaching certificate. I have more than 10 years of public school teaching experience, a master's degree in gifted education, and I am completing my dissertation for my PhD in educational psychology.
I have completed coursework for a PhD in cognition and instruction. I have done research in the fields of problem solving and the testing effect, and have extensive knowledge of learning and memory. I use my knowledge of human memory research to help students improve their learning by teaching them specific memory techniques, increasing their processing speed, and making the most efficient use of their study time by providing topic-specific learning strategies.
