## Outstanding!

Zach, 1 lesson with SherrieYou’ve made such a difference in just one lesson. Very thorough coverage of the concepts. We look forward to many more. Thank you!

I am a high school math teacher, specifically Algebra 2 and Algebra 1, with experience in teaching and tutoring from elementary math through College Algebra. I have a Masters degree from Rider University and a BA in Mathematics from Rutgers University. This school year I am teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and a basic skills math course. Algebra is my absolute favorite subject. During the school year, I not only focus on the current curriculum, but also incorporate review material, lessons to...

Elementary (K-6th),
#### Elementary (K-6th)

I was an elementary/middle school aide for a year and a half, helping students in a study hall with their coursework. I took the Praxis series test as well as the Texas teaching tests. I have tutored students' and family/friends' children during their elementary years on math, spelling and science.
I previously taught 6th grade mathematics this year. All but two of my students passed the STAAR exam. I held tutorials for them after school on Mondays. I also tutored 5-8 grade math on certain Saturdays during the school year.
I will ask the parents and students what exactly they need help in. I will prepare lessons that will highlight the topics they are struggling with, incorporating study tools to help reinforce and remember the materials I am presenting. I will also use foldables to help the students in tutorials.

I worked several years in a daycare with after school aged children. I assisted them with math, reinforcing what they did in the classroom that day as well as offering additional support if need be.

Study Skills
#### Study Skills

I hold a certificate of eligibility in mathematics k-12 for NJ. I have passed the Praxis math content knowledge and the tests necessary for certification in Texas.
I have worked as a Special education aide for 1.5 years helping students who needed extra help in the areas of reading, writing, math and science in grades 6-8. I would help them organize their notes, notebooks and homework to help them prepare themselves for the test. I helped them realize the importance of being organized with their school work. I also assisted with students in the younger grades in math.
I have tutored friends and family in areas of reading, writing and math.
I have helped organize many of them to help them understand the importance of being organized to form better study habits.
I would teach the students different techniques for test anxiety (memory dump at the top of the test, deep breaths before the big test, a mint to help calm the nerves), test taking techniques (multiple choice always eliminate the obvious wrong answer, go through the test read all the questions over and then go back to answer the questions working with what the student understands the most first and then go back to others, circling the answers on the test as well as bubbling the answers on the test, never know when one can make a mistake.) and many other note-taking techniques to help the student be well prepared for the upcoming school year.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I currently teach and have taught Algebra 1 for the past 11 years. I have developed/utilized several supplemental materials to use as study aides and to help in areas of difficulty. I have been tutoring Algebra online for 5+ years and have a passion for Algebra 1

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 for 8 years now. I teach both levels of Algebra 2 so I can modify my lessons to benefit the needs of each student.

I taught pre-algebra in Texas and review pre-algebra every day with my students. I developed lessons that challenged students to create their own problems to help them develop a better understanding for the material.

I have a variety of sample questions to go over and gauge where a student needs more help. I can provide additional support in the areas of weakness. I have sample tests that we can go over and discuss test taking strategies to help calm anxiety surrounding the test.
