I enjoy helping students succeed and feel confident with their math skills. I've taught math ranging from middle school through college level courses. While attending college, I was a tutor. During that time I worked with students taking developmental math and college algebra. It was so rewarding to see a student independently work a problem on their own after I had guided them through the process. When I taught remedial math (at the college level), I always got positive feedback from the students about how they enjoyed my teaching. They would remark that they liked how I worked every step and didn't skip any. This allowed me to address the needs of students on various levels.
Even now, I still tutor after I get done teaching. I do this in class, for individual needs of students. Often they are just needing reassurance of their skills. Sometimes it may a small procedural error that can be addressed. I also make sure my students are able to utilize their calculators. This allows to use their calculators to the fullest potential.
As a teacher, I address the needs of visual, auditory, and hands-on learners. I try and make the connects between the math and drawings or graphs associated with the math. This helps students to make "sense" of the math.
