Hello! I am a 13-year veteran Home School Teacher of grades Pre-K through 9th grade. I teach math including Algebra 1 and Geometry, Science, History, Language Arts, and Spanish (through high school Spanish III; also prep for Diocesan Spanish exam). I can help with SAT and SAT Math Subject tests and math prep for GED.
I am a Girl Scout leader as well and have taught a variety of hands-on programs including camp skills, science and nature, music, and arts & crafts. I always try to make learning fun with games and creative activities. For older students, I provide practical examples and problems to show the relevance of what they are learning particularly with Algebra and Geometry.
I graduated with a BA in Political Science from Duke University. I served in the Navy and Naval Reserve for 12 years.
Currently, I am pursuing teacher licensure. In September 2012, I took a rigorous teacher mathematics (Praxis II) exam that included Algebra 1, some Algebra 2, Geometry and Trigonometry. I passed by a nice margin and will be working towards licensure to teach Middle School Math with endorsements in Algebra 1 and Geometry, and hopefully, Spanish I and II as well.
I am also a substitute teacher in Richmond City Public Schools and am authorized to work with students K-12 in a variety of subjects.
I am willing to travel to your home or meet in a public place such as a study room at the library or at Martin's grocery store cafe area.
