Greetings!

I am a mathematics educator who has a doctoral degree in Early Childhood Development & Education with a focus on Child Development. My degree has given me the ability to research and better understand students’ knowledge and comprehension of mathematics and how their math anxiety and attitudes towards math affects their math performance. I bring to the position 12 years of combined early childhood and public school educational experience. This includes ten years teaching 6th grade math (one of those years I taught 7th grade as well) at an at-risk middle school, one-year teaching private pre-school, and one year as an assistant program director of an after-school program. I also have two years of experience within higher education as an adjunct faculty.

My experience within the educational field has given me the opportunity to better understand how students learn and develop, especially as it pertains to basic and problem solving skills in math. I have taught 4-5 year old children how to read (phonics) and learn the foundations of math (basic arithmetic and basic skills). My specific area of expertise pertaining to mathematics education pertains to working with middle school math students. I have experience in working with students of varying abilities and have helped them develop their math skills. I have also helped college students in developmental math pertaining to their pre-algebra and Algebra I skills and comprehension. I am certified in Texas to teach 4-8 Mathematics and 4-8 ESL. as well as in North Carolina to teach 6-9 Mathematics, 9-12 Mathematics, and K-12 ESL. Furthermore, my education, teaching experience, research and knowledge has helped me to effectively help the students I work with.

So let's not waste any more time and strengthen your child's math abilities!

Want to learn math and appreciate it? Want to understand the why behind the what in mathematical concepts and operations? Want to improve your basic math skills, understanding, and problem-solving? Whether it is early childhood math, elementary, middle school or college algebra...I can help you! Although math seems difficult and causes some anxiety, I can help you to appreciate it, enjoy it, and do better in your math class and see the importance of it in life!

I have been teaching 6th Grade Math for 10 years. I have been on the curriculum team for my grade level to prepare the curriculum to align to the state standards in Texas. I was able to get certified in 6-9 and 9-12 mathematics in North Carolina which follow the Common Core Standards. The Common Core standards are similar to the TEKS in Texas and I have studied them and also tutored students in the North Carolina area based on these standards.

A great match for my daughter!

Nkechi listened and prompted my daughter to speak for herself explaining how she felt with every application they went over. She is patient and does a great job of getting my daughter to realize what she really can accomplish.
