Temple (Elementary Education)
I graduated from Temple University Ambler with a B.S. in Elementary Education/Special Education. I have spent the last 3 years as a learning support teacher in various math classes. I enjoy working with students and helping them to find solutions to everyday math problems, the kind we encounter when we're shopping for necessities or fixing up our house or car.
Many of my students have told me they like the way I am able to help them understand more difficult concepts by relating the underlying idea to real-world applications. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with many students who just needed a little more time and a different way of looking at things to let them see a possibility to be successful.
I have a very good understanding of basic everyday arithmetic, combined with having experience working with students who have not done well in their earlier experiences with learning math. My job the last few years has been to help students who struggle with basic numeration, algebraic concepts, measurement, estimation, foundations of problem solving, and geometry.
I have three years experience working as a Special Education Case Manager, working primarily with special needs children who are two or more years behind grade level in Reading, writing, and Mathematics.

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 provided remedial instruction for students of all learning levels in the areas of pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Geometry for the last three years in an urban high school.
I have 3 years of experience teaching an RTI classroom--Essentials of Algebra-- that covers Pre-Algebra to Algebra I, as well as Geometry and basic numeration, estimation, and measurement. My work in this class is largely working one-on-one with students whose math levels are 2 or more years below grade level. I also provided reading remediation for 10th graders who are 2 years or more below reading level. Immediately after graduating college I spent a year as a substitute in K-8 classrooms.
I have worked for the last 3 years as a Special Education teacher for students with learning support needs. I provided math support for my students in their Geometry and Algebra II classes, as well as providing remediation in a stand-alone class that focused on their pre-Algebra, Algebra, and basic numeration skills.
