About Merrylle

My first post high school experience in Mathematics was via the Social Sciences. Subsequently, I completed Masters degrees in Education and in Professional Mathematics. My teaching career began in the GED program. Subsequently, I took up appointments at the DC Public schools for approximately twenty years; and then Mathematics interventionist activities at private high school campuses.

As a certified veteran mathematics teacher I am able to diagnose students' problems and arrange curriculum to meet their needs, to chunk concepts for student understanding, and to use assessment as my tool to gauge what students know and don't know, to provide relevant resources, and to spur their motivation to achieve in Mathematics. if there are students' content gaps, I find alternative ways to take them to the concepts. If I find talent in my students, I am ready to explore all the potential they have. As a seasoned teacher, my students can 'relax' and learn.

I specialize in algebra, at both high school and college levels.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching Mathematics at this level and higher successfully for the past twenty years, and have developed some sensitivity on this field.

During that period, I have acquired strategies and techniques in both content and pedagogy that make me an effective teacher.
