I have enjoyed 7 years of teaching high school math, and I am now taking a break from full time teaching to be a full time stay-at-home mom. I would love to continue to help students through tutoring. I break complex algebra concepts down into manageable steps for my students. Over the last seven years, I have spent time mentoring students, observing & coaching teachers, and practicing mathematics 40+ hours a week. I have taught remedial freshman classes as well as some upper level courses....
I have enjoyed 7 years of teaching high school math, and I am now taking a break from full time teaching to be a full time stay-at-home mom. I would love to continue to help students through tutoring. I break complex algebra concepts down into manageable steps for my students. Over the last seven years, I have spent time mentoring students, observing & coaching teachers, and practicing mathematics 40+ hours a week. I have taught remedial freshman classes as well as some upper level courses. In teacher evaluations, students have described me as patient, caring, energetic, and fun.
I became a teacher because I wanted to be involved in the lives of teenagers. When I was a teenager, there were a handful of adults who helped me survive adolescence, and I love paying it forward! Although I focused on both language arts and mathematics in college, I enjoy teaching math because I understand when students struggle. Math did not come naturally to me right away in high school, but I persevered and now I'm a high school math teacher! This enables me to support students in overcoming their own hurdles with the subject of math.
I love students, and I love explaining math processes. This is why I am passionate about teaching. I have taken some graduate level classes to continue to pursue knowledge of a subject I genuinely enjoy - math!
I have supported students at my school with Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, the courses that I have taught. Sometimes students I taught in previous years will even come back for support in Trigonometry, Statistics, and Geometry homework because they like the way I explain things so much. I am a certified high school math teacher in the state of Colorado and I previously held both Math and English teaching certifications in the state of Georgia.
I am available for both occasional math needs or ongoing consistent support. I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you in being a total success in math!
