Teaching Honors courses in Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Functions and Trigonometry during past 5 years with my unique methods, techniques and skills, students continue to improve their understanding of math and their grades. I continue to receive many letters from parents and students thanking me for being one of the few math teachers that makes LEARNING MATH FUN, with students LOOKING FORWARD to coming to my classes. When tutoring, I use these same techniques while working one on one with EACH STUDENT, and the differences are evident from our first lesson.

It is essential that students are actively engaged in their learning environment as this will greatly benefit their learning experiences, while continuing to build on previous knowledge. As students progress, they become more refined in what subjects and areas that peak their interests, which results in more self-motivated learning. Students will learn to think and solve problems through hands-on experiences, open discussions, lab experience and projects where they can choose from a wide range of topics, keeping them engaged at higher levels and become even more passionate about their areas of interest.

As an educator, and knowing that students must be actively engaged in order to learn effectively, I take pride involving my students with real world problems and solutions through open discussions and projects, provoking their thought process to integrate new knowledge with previous knowledge. I encourage all my students to seek the answers to their own questions, demonstrate their learning through inquiry and application and facilitating their passion as they grow.

In essence, I facilitate students in their journey toward self-realization, self-actualization and ultimately self-efficacy. When students start thinking “outside of the box” as their abilities, experiences and knowledge continue to expand, they become “PROBLEM SOLVERS” which enables students to actively become self-motivating, passionate lifelong learners. This enhances their educatio

I am highly qualified and experienced in the subject of math, especially ALGEBRA 1, ALGEBRA 2, GEOMETRY, ANALYSIS OF FUNCTIONS, TRIGONOMETRY, and PRE-CALCULUS. Only a well prepared tutor in testing, test prep and test taking skills, as well as a complete understanding of what needs to be covered on the ALGEBRA 1 End-Of-Course (EOC) Examination Program should be considered in order for the student to succeed. ALGEBRA 1 COMPLETE - uses VARIABLES to GENERALIZE and EXTEND THE LAWS OF ARITHMETIC. The student will acquire facility in APPLYING ALGEBRAIC CONCEPTS AND SKILLS TO REAL WORLD PROBLEMS. This course is the BASIS for all further study of COLLEGE PREPARATORY MATHEMATICS. This course aligns with the state standards for Elementary Algebra. A student enrolling in this course should have mastery of the fundamental concepts and operations of arithmetic (ARITHMETIC is 4-function math, specifically +, -, ×, and ÷, similar to a 4-function calculator). THIS COURSE will include THE STUDY OF: THE REAL NUMBER SYSTEM, LINEAR EQUATIONS AND INEQUALITIES, POLYNOMIALS AND FACTORING, GRAPHING OF FUNCTIONS AND RELATIONS, and IRRATIONAL NUMBERS. All Algebra 1 students will be required to participate in the statewide End-Of-Corse (EOC) Examination Program. ALGEBRA 1, PART 1 - is structured to meet the needs of students with varying degrees of mathematics backgrounds. Students who successfully complete ”Algebra 1 Part 1” will progress to ”Algebra 1 Part 2” (Advanced). All ”Algebra 1 Complete” course OR ”Algebra 1, Part 1” course PLUS ”Algebra 1, Part 2” course students will be required to participate in the statewide End-Of-Course (EOC) Examination Program. ALGEBRA 1, PART 2 - is designed to meet the needs of students with varying degrees of mathematics backgrounds who have successfully completed Algebra 1 Part 1 (usually in grade 9). This course includes instruction in the following areas: FUNCTIONS, EQUATIONS, INEQUALITIES, MATRICES, DATA ANALYSIS, TRANSFORMATIONS, EXPONENTS, POLYNOMIALS AND FACTORING, QUADRATIC FUNCTIONS, RADIC

I am highly qualified and experienced in the subject of math, especially ACT Math. Only a well prepared tutor in testing, test prep and test taking skills, as well as a complete understanding of what needs to be covered on the ACT Math tests should be considered in order for the student to succeed. ACT MATHEMATICS TEST DESCRIPTION: The ACT Mathematics Test is a 60-question, 60-minute test designed to measure the mathematical skills students have typically acquired in courses taken by the end of 11th grade. The test presents multiple-choice questions that require you to use reasoning skills to solve practical problems in mathematics. You need knowledge of basic formulas and computational skills to answer the problems, but you aren't required to know complex formulas and perform extensive computation. IMPORTANT: You may use a calculator on the Mathematics Test. See ACT's calculator policy for details about permitted and prohibited calculators. If you use a prohibited calculator, you will be dismissed and your answer document will not be scored. You are not required to use a calculator. All the problems can be solved without a calculator. CONTENT COVERED BY THE ACT MATHEMATICS TEST: In the Mathematics Test, three sub-scores are based on six content areas: pre-algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, coordinate geometry, plane geometry, and trigonometry. PRE-ALGEBRA/ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA: • Pre-Algebra (23%). Questions in this content area are based on basic operations using whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and integers; place value; square roots and approximations; the concept of exponents; scientific notation; factors; ratio, proportion, and percent; linear equations in one variable; absolute value and ordering numbers by value; elementary counting techniques and simple probability; data collection, representation, and interpretation; and understanding simple descriptive statistics. • Elementary Algebra (17%). Questions in this content area are based on properties of exponents and square roots, eva

As a STEAM Teacher, I have taught courses in high school in Earth and Space Sciences. This area of study is unique in that it prepares students to understand the fundamentals for the essential understandings that will lead them and allow them to understand what provides a great foundation to grow on in order to become a future astronaut. With space science greatly opening doors for so many in the next few years, it is essential that NOW these pre-astronaut students have a SOLID FOUNDATION of understanding of the Physics and Biological aspects of this new frontier that is now in our hands, and move forward to a career in the most challenging field that is opening doors to those qualified to be the best of the BEST.

ASVAB

I have been tutoring junior and senior students, graduates and college students for the ASVAB for many years and am PROUD of their results: I have 2 now in the Air Force, 1 in Basic Training in the Navy, 1 in the Army and 2 who are currently studying hard to qualify for the Coast Guard, one of the most difficult branches to qualify for because it is the smallest branch and is EXTREMELY competitive. One of my students has decided to concentrate on going into the Police Academy instead of going into the military first. His tutoring and studying for the ASVAB has made a huge difference in his knowledge, and he is currently completing necessary pre-requisites at IRSC (Indian River State College), and though he didn't think 9 months ago he would qualify for any scholarships, I pushed hard and helped him complete applications, and he received most of his tuition and books with scholarships! And he just found out he was Awarded a FULL SCHOLARSHIP for the Police Academy! I start off by doing an assessment of each area of the ASVAB and then set up a Plan of Action. I start MOST students with Mathematics Knowledge (how to solve math problems using formulas from Algebra 1, 2, and Geometry) and Arithmetic Reasoning (how to think about, then apply math principles to math word problems). To keep a student from being overwhelmed by just math, I also include General Science at this time, to continually build up a solid background. A SERIOUS student will understand that if they do not remember or know the information, it is important to be tutored and study on a regular and disciplined program. Know that DISCIPLINE is ESSENTIAL for anyone entering any of the military branches. The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) is a set of 9 tests that is given to anyone that is interested in enlisting in any of the United States Armed Forces. Each test is multiple choice and has a given time allowed to complete. It is an exam that assesses a person's developed abilities and helps to see future academic and occupational suc
