I have been teaching developmental mathematics which includes basic mathematics, Pre-Algebra, and Beginning Algebra at the College level since 2012. I have further prepared students for success and taught College Algebra, PreCalculus and Statistics at the college level since 2012.

At the high school level, I teach Mathematics to grades 6-11th which includes preparation for 6, 6th, 8th grade PARCC exams, as well as the 10th grade MCAS exam.

I have particular strengths in developing reading comprehension, teaching concepts such as main idea, finding text evidence, and making inferences from a passage. I also teach writing effective compare/contrasts, and descriptive essays.

With respect to Mathematics, I also teach mathematics at the college serving as an adjunct professor at area colleges.

I have been teaching study skills as a "Core" course at the high schools where I work. Students in my course learn time management, how to prioritize tasks, organization (effective use of portfolios, binders, folders, etc.), scheduling study time to maximize understanding, etc. These skills are then transferred to all their areas of study as well as in their personal, enrichment, and extracurricular pursuits.
