As a math teacher for the past 11 years, I have had experience with traditional and common core based math instruction. Having earned a double major in Math and Biology in my undergraduate studies, working in the computer industry for 14 years and earning a Master's in Teaching degree gives me a better perspective on what is needed to be successful in problem solving in math and life.

As a math teacher for the past 11 years, I have had experience with traditional and common core based math instruction. Having earned a double major in Math and Biology in my undergraduate studies, working in the computer industry for 14 years and earning a Master's in Teaching degree gives me a better perspective on what is needed to be successful in problem solving in math and life.
I specialize in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 tutoring. I strive to make connections in the math concepts, so students don't feel like they are constantly learning new material. There are many areas where math concepts are leveraged in more complex topics. This is where my strength in seeing these connections in the math exists. It is important for students to tie the mathematics into real situations to add that additional level of connection and understanding. When students can recall a similar scenario with a real life basis, it becomes much easier to decide what direction to take in solving the problem.
As we work together for student success, I will pre-asses and re-assess student understanding in current concepts as well as fundamental math concepts. It is important for students to gain understanding of missing concepts as we, also, move forward with new concepts. Continuous improvement in all necessary math concepts is my goal.
I require a 24 hour cancellation notice. We can work together to schedule a make-up session.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve success in your math studies.
