About Dawn

I have been teaching middle and high school math for three years using one-on-one math instructions on a daily basis.

Students who struggle with basic math can feel very behind when they take higher level math. Unfortunately, there is no time for the teacher to go back and reteach or for the student to relearn these concepts. I generally assess the student's level to identify his or her "problem areas" and incorporate the misconceptions into the problems of his or her current math subject.

To name a few key items that I cover:
* Arithmetic: Adding or subtracting negative and positive number, fractions, decimals, percentages, etc.
* Algebra/pre-calculus: Slopes, graph linear equations,solving equations and system of equations, functions (graphing, transformation, end behavior, increasing or decreasing intervals, finding inverse, odd/even, finding zeros), algebraic identities, factoring polynomials, logarithm, conic sections, matrices.
* Geometry: Find perimeter, area, volume of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional objects. work with polygons, prove triangle similarity and congruence, properties of circles.
* Trigonometry: Pythagorean Theorem, trig identities, proofs.
* Statistics: Probability, Binomial or Normal distribution

I believe that everyone can learn math. You just need to clear up a few clogs and you will be good to go!
