I love math and I want my students to love math, too. I want to take the anxiety out of math for them. I am very patient and I especially want to build on each student's strengths.
Foundational math is very important. High school math teachers don't have time to reteach fractions or integer operations. Algebra I is the beginning of high level work and I love teaching Algebra! Geometry has a beauty and discipline that I can certainly teach kids. Algebra II and pre-calculus are demanding subjects that I can show students how to tackle one step at a time.
I also help my students by showing them online resources to build their skills between tutoring sessions.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin. I have been successful at helping local students improve their grades significantly. I have passed the Texas teacher tests to teach Math for grades 4-8 and grades 8-12.
Most importantly, I listen to my students to determine how they approach problem solving and I get the students to use their abilities to succeed.
