##### About Michael

I have a BA in Sociology and a MEd. I have 37 years classroom experience mainly in elementary school but I have also taught in middle school, high school and adult education. I have taught in private, public and charter schools as well as online ESL class. I am certified Early Childhood through 8th grade as a Generalist and 9- 12th grade Comprehensive Social Studies.

I began teaching math to students who were a grade or more behind back in 1977. Over the years I have learned all sorts of tricks and techniques that make math both easy to understand and memorable. I believe that mastery of computational math is still important. Problem solving is best done with basic algebra regardless grade level. Hands on is the way to go. I have used games and game based learning since day one, long before Gamification was coined as an education buzz word. I have also taught gifted students who were several grades ahead of other students and have coached UIL Number Sense. While most of my time has been spent in the classroom teaching 25-30 students, I have also done small group and one on one tutoring. I promise that if I can teach it to students in a classroom, I can teach it you.

While math is my main thing, I also have experience teaching reading, writing, American History, World History, Geography and Elementary Science.

If any of this sounds interesting, let's set up a time and place we can meet and basically interview each other. I look forward to hearing from you.
