About Rose

I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12). I have been a Level 5 teacher (highest effectiveness score as determined by State of Tennessee) consistently throughout my teaching career. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry at the high school level and 7th and 8th grade math at the middle school level. I currently work part-time for Knox County Schools as a Numeracy Coach assisting math teachers with curriculum and teaching strategies.

My goal with a student is to help them improve their ability to reason mathematically which in turn should improve any scores in math. I want students to have a passion for math! My favorite phrase from a student is "Oh, I get it!" I graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering so I know how important math is and how it can be used in the real world.

Having worked as an engineer prior to becoming a certified math teacher, I can show students how math is used in the real world. When one can see how math is used, it helps students better relate math concepts to their daily life. Math is a powerful tool used in almost every facet of life. With the TN Promise opportunity, students need to be successful in the core subject of math.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Common Core

I work as a Numeracy Coach at a middle school. My role is to coach math teachers. In this role, I co-teach common core math standards for 6th through 8th grades and Algebra 1, identify differentiation strategies, prepare common assessments, and analyze data to identify areas that need to be retaught. I have attended 6 days of Common Core training provided by the State of Tennessee.

Praxis

I have taken both the middle school Praxis as well as the high school Praxis. I scored 185 out of 200 on the middle school Praxis and 146 on the high school Praxis (135 is passing in our state). I have taught 7th and 8th grade math as well as high school Algebra and Geometry. I am able to provide test taking strategies to help prospective teachers pass the Praxis.

Study Skills

I am a certified math teacher (grades 7-12) with 8 years experience. I have tutored after school each of these years. Tennessee teachers are ranked on a scale of 1-5 (5 is the highest) with respect to effectiveness. I have consistently been a Level 5 teacher for Algebra 2. I have been described by students as patient. I finished my Chemical Engineering degree (Tennessee Technological University, not on-line) in 36 months while working two part-time jobs. To do this, I had to apply incredible "study skills" and believe I can share with others these skills.
