I taught Science and Math for 35 years in both High School and Middle School. I worked with students after school in a tutoring program that I started. I started and ran a math summer camp for incoming 7th graders so they could get a head start. I retired 2 years ago and I miss teaching. I have been trained in the new common core curriculum and can help students find relationships between the new and old math.
As part of my teaching style, I try to bring in real life experiences for the students to identify with. I like to use, when appropriate, hands on manipulatives to further explain difficult concepts. I have many different ways to teach the same concept, this allows me to find each student's individual learning style. I also have experience working with special education students and IEPs.
I hope to stimulate each student's interest in their education. I taught Science and Math for 35 years in both High School and Middle School.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught and tutored science and math in the school system. Life Science, Physical Science, Algebra and General Math. Many of my students were learning disabled, gifted and general education. I have also taught using the Core system.
I have taken courses at Cal Poly Pomona in Botany, Range Management, Horticulture, and Agronomy. My Bachelors degree is in Agriculture. I taught Plant Science at the high school level.
I have taught using the common core system in a public school. I have attended seminars on common core practices. I have also tutored at the junior high level using the common core.
I have a lot of patience, experience and elementary math knowledge.
I have taken genetics courses at Cal Poly Pomona. I use genetics in my cat breeding business. I have taught genetics during my 35 years of teaching.
I have worked with all levels of student abilities (high, low and regular achievers). I conducted a summer math camp for incoming 7th graders. I also tutored algebra in an after school program.
My Bachelors Degree is in Animal Science and Agriculture. I have taken Vertebrate and Invertebrate Zoology at Cal Poly Pomona. I have taken Microbiology, also at Cal Poly Pomona.
