I have a Bachelor's degree in physics with a minor in mathematics and engineering (which includes college-level calculus I, II, and III) coupled with the experience in tutoring and teaching both at the high school and adult, college-level.
My approach to pre-algebra is slightly different from what the text books cover. This gives the student a "second" way of working out the problems and an alternate way of trying to understand the basis of the various operations.
When taking the SAT math, I received a perfect score of 800. Since then I have worked with students in both sophomore and junior years to raise their grades on the SAT by about 200 points across the board. Being an organic chemist requires a lot of math, and it's one of my strongest subjects.
I have successfully taught algebra 1 to students with a wide range of abilities. I believe that a solid foundation in algebra with help your child be successful for all of their math classes.
Elementary math is the time to establish patterns and basic algorithms. Though these terms can be transparent from the student they are none the less vital. I tailor each lesson to the individual students needs and constantly reinforce patterns and algorithms. Integrated into the lessons are fundamental concepts of algebra and geometry.
I got an A in Calculus in high school and an A+ in college.
I took a statistics class in college. I earned an A- grade in the course.
I have a Masters in engineering. I have been teaching mathematics and physics since 1985, GCE and IGCSE British system all the levels. I am one of the most famous names in teaching mathematics and physics in my country Egypt. But now I am in USA for family reasons. In 1998 I was selected as the best teacher in the Middle East in teaching mathematics and physics.
As part of requirements to pass national examinations in elementary math, I took a specialized course about the kinds of problems students need to solve. I had much of my instruction from a retired math teacher. Another resource which provides an interdisciplinary approach is the Discovery Channel's Culture and Math series of DVDS. These presentations begin with Ancient Egypt. There are examples of the spread of new concepts from Ancient Egypt to Ancient Greece. Other topics include Roman and Arabic contributions. Mayan math and its base-20 standard receives attention in this series.In July, 2011, I completed a three-day course, Response to Intervention in Math. I have a book and handouts which accompanied the course which covers fractions, decimals, percentages, and strategies for solving word problems. I also have sample 8-minute tests to determine the progress of students with low scores on standardized tests. I have information about a variety of websites and math games to motivate students who need additional help in math.
