Bio

I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics Education and a Master of Education Degree in Counseling and Guidance. I am in my 40th year of teaching mathematics including elementary, middle grades, high school (Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus), and College Algebra. Since I was in the 5th grade, my favorite subject has been mathematics because my teacher, Mr Philips, made it interesting for me.

I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics Education and a Master of Education Degree in Counseling and Guidance. I am in my 40th year of teaching mathematics including elementary, middle grades, high school (Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus), and College Algebra. Since I was in the 5th grade, my favorite subject has been mathematics because my teacher, Mr Philips, made it interesting for me.

More than ten times the Star Student of my school, chosen for the highest score on the SAT of the senior year, has chosen me as their Star Teacher. For years I have made myself available for tutoring after school for my own students, as well as students from other schools and college students. I like to see students succeed. Those successes have ranged from improving unit test grades to preparations for final exams and college entrance exams. My intentions are to help the student better understand the mathematics and how it can be used to solve problems. I can use the methods used by your teacher or suggest other possibilities that may be easier for you to learn a concept. My methods of teaching a concept or skill will begin with prerequisites followed by examples and opportunities for you to demonstrate your newly acquired skills. I also emphasize writing instructions or steps to follow so that you have a guide when I am not there. I look forward to working with you.

I love high school mathematics: Algebra I &II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. I try to understand what the student is having trouble doing: understanding directions, computation, or developing a plan for finding a solution. I then develop my plan to be the most helpful to the student. The right answer is generally not the ultimate goal but developing confidence in the student that he/she knows how to find the solution because the problem is better understood.

Please allow me to help you have a better experience in your math class. I know it is difficult for many students and you are not alone. So, contact me
