I have a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Connecticut and hold teaching credentials in the states of California (single subject mathematics) and Massachusetts (high school mathematics) along with twelve years of classroom teaching experience between those states.
I have taught many different courses including: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Integrated Math II and III, Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics, Precalculus, Calculus, SAT Prep Math as well as Physics (both algebra-based and calculus-based).
I've never had a student who wasn't willing and able to learn something they thought was really interesting or really important. The mathematics that students are expected to learn to earn their diploma are both interesting and important. No, really, I'm not just saying that. And no, it's not just important because it is a graduation requirement. We live in a world of rapidly changing patterns, trends, statistics and data and we have more of it thrown at us every day. Watch the news, check out what is trending online or look at a billboard. Everywhere we look someone is trying to convince us of something and they are all using numbers to make their point. Understanding what these numbers mean and identifying the patterns and relationships that are hidden in the data is important for everyone these days.
I know from my experience as a student and as a teacher that learning is strongly affected by environment. When the pressure and anxiety of the classroom is gone and students have an environment where they aren't afraid to ask questions, make mistakes or be themselves, great things happen. If you think I might be the the tutor you are looking for then please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
