I have taught Algebra I, Algebra II, PreCalculus, Geometry, and Trigonometry in public and private schools for 13 years. I also have worked as a virtual math teacher with a leading online high school for 2 years. I taught General Education Math courses for adults at a private college and have taught hybrid math courses in a computer lab setting. I have worked as a math tutor in a college computer lab setting. I currently hold a Professional Educator’s Certificate. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Masters Degree in Postsecondary Educational Technology.

I have been very successful in helping students raise their scores on End of Course State Assessments, SAT, ACT, and PERT. I have been very successful in helping students increase their course grades and overall G.P.A. I have developed math curriculum for use in learning programs on the IPAD. In addition to my 13 years of teaching experience, I have tutored students for 16 years.

Before I started teaching, I was employed as a Data Analyst for an Environmental company, and I previously worked as a Technical Analyst for a well-known bank. I also have worked in the finance industry.

I love to help students develop a sense of personal inner appreciation for the development of their own skills, successes, achievements, and personal goals. I understand the commitment and discipline in takes to be successful academically. I really love to see students do well in math.

I taught Algebra I in public and private high school for 13 years. I worked as a virtual math teacher and have taught Algebra I online to individual students as well as taught group classes. I taught Algebra I in a community college. I have experience teaching Algebra I for a private college and have experience explaining Algebra I, step -by- step, in a college computer lab setting. I tutored personal clients in Algebra I for 15 years and have developed Algebra I curriculum for use in learning programs on the IPAD.

Geometry,

Geometry

I taught Geometry in the classroom for 8 out of my 13 years of teaching. I continue to be successful in helping SAT students understand Geometry as they prepare to take the SAT. I have helped many SAT math students increase their overall SAT scores because of the level of instruction I provided on Geometric concepts and their application on the SAT. I tutored Geometry students for 13 years, and I continue to help students understand Geometry and realize that they can be successful in Geometry.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I taught Pre-Calculus in the classroom for 8 out of my 13 years of teaching. I continue to tutor students in Pre-Calculus and help them become successful in Pre-Calculus. I help my students understand important topics that will prepare them to be very successful in Calculus and beyond. I have helped many students raise their overall GPA score because they have passed their Pre-Calculus classes. I have helped my students review essential math concepts needed to be very successful in Pre-Calculus. Several of my students have been able to get into the college of their dreams. Some of my students have been athletes and have really needed to pass their math classes and have received scholarships and/or have been recruited for college athletics. Pre-Calculus is one of my favorite math topics. Pre-Calculus is the culmination of many math classes before it and the conceptual bridge for many higher-level math courses beyond the Pre-Calculus level.

I have helped many students understand different perspectives and approaches to working out SAT math problems. Often, there are simpler ways to arrive to the answer than many of my students think. I have helped many students increase their SAT math scores and get into college.

Patient, Knowledgeable, and Caring

Paula understood that I didn't understand algebra and the concepts within. She did not make me feel like it should be easy, she helped me tackle them in creative ways. I have never been a math person, but she is making me feel like one! I highly recommend Paula for tutoring in math.
