I have been teaching math at both private and public schools 7th - 12th grade for almost 20 years. I'm passionate about teaching math and really enjoy helping students learn the subject. I too had difficulty understanding math in school and wish I had a tutor to guide me through middle school and high school.
I used to ask former students of mine what they liked about my teaching style and techniques for learning so I could be the best teacher possible. They stated that my strengths in teaching math were numerous. The students liked that I had ability to relate to young adults. I cared about them as much outside the classroom as inside it. In addition, I have empathy, patience and compassion for students who struggle with the subject. I have a friendly personality and a warm sense of humor that helped them learn. Furthermore, I have a clear and easy way of getting the math concepts across for understanding. Finally, many former students stated to me that I applied real life applications used as a tool to assist learning the material so they would actually enjoy and have success with the math concepts.
My math qualifications includes a California and Idaho Teaching Credential with an authorization in Math 6th - 12th grade.
