Are you tired of Math not making sense? Did you forget the joy of how it feels when everything comes together? If so, I should be able to help. I love Mathematics and see it as a unique language that is both challenging and fun to explore.

Are you tired of Math not making sense? Did you forget the joy of how it feels when everything comes together? If so, I should be able to help. I love Mathematics and see it as a unique language that is both challenging and fun to explore. Many times students get caught up in learning for "the test" and forget to see the big picture in which everything one learns in Mathematics connects to something that one already learned. My special skill is to find this connection and thus help each student rebuild their understanding so that they can use their knowledge not only on the test, but way beyond it.
I am new in Texas coming here from New Jersey where I worked as a Mathematics teacher and junior college professor teaching classes from Algebra I through Calculus. About half of my work in the HS was with concurrent enrollment (dual credit) students. The other half of the day was spent preparing younger students to be ready for the said college level classes and working with other teachers to ensure that all transitions happen smoothly. So in summary, I can easily relate to most students and material in high school and junior college and have much experience in guiding students towards being ready for college level classes.
I have lived in several countries and have grown up as the nerd who plays sports or the jock who does Math (depending on whom you happen to ask). This gives me the unique insight to several different styles of thought and communication styles. After speaking with someone I am usually able to present an idea to them in their language/style, thus making it easier for them to understand it. In the end, Math is just a language and I can guide you along to understand it by filling in the missing parts and connections.
I look forward to heaving from you and hope that I can help you get ahead in Mathematics.
