I am Alexis. I graduated from University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez Campus with a Bachelor in Geology and a minor in Meteorology. When I was in college, I had professors who always inspired me to give the extra mile and that way, become a better student and professional. I also graduated from Concordia University-Portland with a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Math (K-14). These experiences have helped me to become the teacher I am today. Because my teachers and professor never gave up on me, I never give up on my students. I try funny and real-world cases to introduce a topic.
I have six years of experience as a high school math teacher, teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry and Statistics. I have also taught College Readiness and Tutorials using AVID strategies. I also had tutoring sessions after-school, and on Fridays with small groups, so they can catch up and not fall behind in class.
My highest priority is that the students can be successful. My philosophy is that all students can learn and manage math. Besides, the best way to help a student is with the collaboration of his family. Therefore, I am open to suggestions from parents to help the student be successful. Also, if you are a university student, your inputs and recommendations are taken into consideration. I can adapt to different ways of learning, recognizing that each student is different, there is a lot of diversity, and that there are different ways to arrive at a solution.
