I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics as that has always been my favorite subject. My graduate degree is Computer Science and I worked as a software engineer for several years. I have also taught high school mathematics for four years. I loved teaching and tutoring mathematics, but meetings, word walls, bus duty and all the non-math stuff, not so much. Presently I teach computer courses in college, but I would like to get into math tutoring and pick up some math graduate courses on the side. I am comfortable with any high school and undergraduate math class, but I would like to start with Algebra & Geometry while I learn the business of tutoring.
I have four years of teaching/tutoring high school math (Alg 1 & II, Geometry, Math Models, Pre-Calc and Calculus). My undergraduate degree was mathematics and I earned secondary math certification through the Univ. Texas Arlington graduate school.
Mathematics is the most important subject you will learn in high school. Algebra is the backbone of all science courses. The problem solving skills you pick up in all of your math courses will be helpful through college and beyond. Success in mathematics hinges on removing math anxiety. My focus will be to teach you problem solving strategies, thus boosting your confidence and changing your attitude about math, which is the key to learning math.
