Though I currently work as an IT professional, I previously spent over 20 years teaching Math, Science and Computer Programming at High Schools and Colleges in the US, Argentina and Brazil and am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese,

I do not use rote learning methods when teaching mathematics. The true joy of math for a student is to discover the patterns that govern it rather than memorize a bunch of rules. Since mathematics is built on abstraction, the idea is for the student to "create"...

Though I currently work as an IT professional, I previously spent over 20 years teaching Math, Science and Computer Programming at High Schools and Colleges in the US, Argentina and Brazil and am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese,

I do not use rote learning methods when teaching mathematics. The true joy of math for a student is to discover the patterns that govern it rather than memorize a bunch of rules. Since mathematics is built on abstraction, the idea is for the student to "create" his or her own abstractions (ie rules) starting by analyzing more concrete ideas. An example to start the product of binomials is to consider a number product such as 12 x 14 by breaking it up as (10+2)(10+4) = 100 +20 + 40 + 8 = 168.

I have always enjoyed the interaction between student and teacher and have many years experience with one-to-one tutoring as well as different types of classroom settings. I find that it is best to work in small groups and allow students to help each other as the act of explaining to someone produces an act of learning.

Due to my current work schedule, I am available on a limited basis and part-time only.
