I taught in Illinois for seven years and Phoenix for 5 years. I primarily taught high school. The courses taught and number of times taught are in the list below. I meet the requirements for "Highly Qualified" in Mathematics.

I hold a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics (physics minor), and am able to present material via a variety of formats and approaches. If I see that you are not "getting it" one way, I'll approach the concept from a different angle. I am generally quite patient and will work with anyone that has the desire to learn. However, I am NOT willing to waste my time and your money if the student isn't willing to put the effort into learning.

With my current teaching schedule, I am only available on weekends. If a weekend only schedule will work for you, I am available.
