Hello, I am currently a High School Math Teacher in DeKalb County School System. I have been teaching high school mathematics for about six years now. The bulk of my experience is teaching Coordinate Algebra/Algebra I in which I have taught for six consecutive years now. I have taught Advanced Algebra and Analytic Geometry in previous years as well. I generally do well in regards to preparing scholars for the Georgia Milestone in which I have an approximately 80% passing rate. Further, scholars in my class have experienced tremendous growth in regard to the academic maturity and grasp of knowledge.

The reason I love tutoring is to truly see how scholars are able to grow and adapt to different mathematical content. I also like challenging my scholars to higher level concepts. And finally, I like relating current mathematical content to sports or financial opportunities that student can apply in their everyday life.

I have six years of experience in Coordinate Algebra/ Algebra I. I have a high passing rate for the GA Milestones. Also, I like relating mathematical content to topics that my scholars truly have a interest for. Finally, I understand the vertical alignment of math course and am able to build prior knowledge to higher order concepts.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, and learn more on how to apply math to your everyday life!

Lavon helped my son through a tough section of Algebra 2. He was patient and showed great understanding of the material. We will definitely use Lavon again and highly recommend him to others.
