In my 8 years as a middle school math teacher, I have discovered effective methods of "filling in the gaps" in math understanding from elementary through middle grades. I love the moment when a student "gets" a concept that was mysterious prior to our work together. I also work with students to develop thinking skills, questioning skills, and

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have taught the 7th Grade Common Core Math curriculum since it was adopted in North Carolina. Common Core requires students to understand concepts and apply them in multiple ways. Students are required to reason mathematically and explain their thinking, and these are my goals in working with every student. For example, we do not teach students to simply "cross multiply" to solve a proportion. With Common Core, we teach students how to reason proportionally, I.e. for every 1\2 inch on the map, you must travel 5 miles on the road. This shift builds the ability to apply proportional reasoning in real world situations.

I also have extensive experience with teaching students to draw and label models when working on word problems (Mathematical Practice 4). Models have helped many struggling students find success in problem solving.
