I have lived across the U.S. and the world. I have worked with groups from various cultures. I teach understanding before formulae. My classical education is in Psychology, but I have always been skilled in translating complex mathematical concepts from "teacher speak" to "student language".
I have taught mathematics in public middle schools and high schools for the past 10 years. I received certification in Arizona, and earned excellent scores on the Arizona Educator Proficiency Assessment (AEPA) for Mathematics, Middle Grades Mathematics, and Professional Knowledge (Secondary).
When applying to my current position, the principal stated he had a need for a Physics instructor. I minored in Mechanical Engineering in college, so I felt confident in my physics understanding. While I could have waited for up to two years, I took and passed the Missouri Educators Gateway Assessment (MEGA) within six months.
I teach by asking questions. I force your brain to wrestle with the concepts. When you tutor with me, it will be work, but you will understand. I will not do your work for you. When you tutor with me, you will have the skills to complete your work and gain a sense of self-satisfaction. My students regularly raise their class grade by a letter or more, and score at the top of the class on tests.
