##### About Alan

Several years ago, I left my job to pursue a degree in secondary math education. I recently finished my degree and begin my student teaching in January 2016. During the over 200 hours of field experience that was required to complete my degree, I was able to work with students in several different school districts covering a wide range of subjects and grade levels. Having just finished my degree in Secondary Math Education from Metro, I am familiar with the current standards required by most school districts and how to make sense of them.

My time working in the classroom offered a variety of opportunities to work with students individually as well as lead an entire class in several lessons. I had an amazing time working with the students and was told that I am able to explain things very well and help students understand concepts and exactly what is going on. Positive feedback like this was very encouraging and enforced my passion for teaching.

To complete my degree, I was required to complete over 200 hours of classroom field experience. During these field experiences, I worked with students in grades 7-12 in many different math subjects ranging from prealgebra to AP Calculus. Working with such a wide range of subjects allowed me to strengthen my fundamentals in each of them.

Mathematics is a challenging subject that can cause frustration in many students. I will help students understand the fundamentals and see how mathematics builds upon itself. Together we will make sense of what is happening and learn how to navigate the intricacies that come with mathematics.
