I have been teaching math in both public and private schools. I make a point to ensure that each student is following along and understands the concepts. Math can be a discouraging subject to study when skills are lacking. My goal in teaching is to explain each concept, step by step, to ensure understanding. I strive to determine how the student learns best, and I teach according to their learning style. Early math skills and successes are essential for future successes. My goal is to assess student needs and instruct needed skills, while building current goals. Once a student has a more thorough understanding of processes in math, they can enjoy it more. It is a personal goal for me to make sure students understand the material and feel confident in class.
I feel that math skills in Middle and Secondary school ensure success for students in preparation for college or whatever is the next step. I use Arkansas state standards, grade level, and school curriculum, to direct which skills need mastery. Let me know what your experience has been in your math class. Together we can make a plan, give you the math skills you need, and help you succeed in your upcoming or current math class. As a side note: I home schooled my son. If you need support in the subject of math, I am here to help.
With 18 years experience teaching math from Elementary Math through College Algebra, I am very familiar with the skills that students need from their prior math, current level, and what they need to master for future. If your student is missing skills, I would be happy to fill in the gaps. I have a masters degree in education which gives me strategies to help each learner. It is my personal goal for each student to succeed in math and feel more confident in their work. Feel free to contact me for more information. I am sure you have questions, and I am available to help you get the answers you need to make a decision for your academic needs. Contact me just to talk, or to schedule a first session.
