thru college. Successful in teaching/tutoring all ages of students in math and science. As a United Way volunteer, tutored grade school
students who were temporary wards of the state.
Have had great rapport with my students; try to make learning fun, show students practical or even humorous ways to think of or remember mathematical principles, not just rote memorization of formulas. Emphasize students understanding the math, not just memorizing or punching buttons on a calculator. Show them the flexibility within various math procedures to make problems easier to do, less time consuming, easier to remember, and more accurate.
On a personal note, I am an avid Mariners/Seahawks fan! Felix...perfect! Seahawks...NFL Champions!!! Students who are fans are preferred!
