When I was a student, I loved math
. It is my favorite subject. I learned it from books, teachers and professors. I also worked and tried many activities and figured out problems. All that mix gave me the opportunity to see the beauty of math and enjoy the elegance in advanced and abstract parts of math.
My undergraduate degree is in Engineering. In 2004 I started a graduate program in Mathematics
at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. I completed the program and graduated in December 2006 with a Master's degree in Mathematics.
I started working as a Math teacher in 2007. I am certified to teach math for the 11-21 age group. My initial license was issued in July 2010.
My belief is that every student can learn. I prefer to give explanations and show how a problem is solved. In addition, I can use a visual (picture or graph) to illustrate the problem and potential solutions. We also can use manipulatives to aid the questions and help you understand how to approach the problem. I like eliciting answers from student. This is one way the student can try to solve the problem.
It is important to communicate math. I like to help students understand and use the proper mathematical notation when solving problems. When we have an equation, for example, we need to use appropriate notations and ways to solve. Geometry
is one of the most important mathematical disciplines and one of the hardest. It has many faces. Rigid constructions, proofs
and calculating areas and volumes are three different parts that have to be addressed. I like hands on (using patty paper and other construction materials) to illustrate the problem. Next, we need to go to the next level. We start generalizing and constructing proofs to assure that what we observe is correct.
I enjoy solving problems and helping students that are interested in math. I like to draw a picture of a problem, make a diagram or act
the problem. We can draw a table or make a graph.
"I do, we do, you do" is one way I can help you learn. You learn to ask yourself the important questions and decode the problem. I can help you become independent learner.
We can do it together! This is your chance to start working better and become an excellent student.
Thank you for your time.
See you soon online or in person.
3 hours notice required
The first lesson is 50% off. This is to get the student (and parent) chance to see for yourself with what and how I am going to help you.
