I am a career-switcher, having been a project manager in the private sector for many years, before settling on my passion - teaching!! For the last four years, I have been a math and science teacher, and currently have the privilege of facilitating the learning of middle school and high school students for a private school in the Madison, Wisconsin area. I hold a valid state of Wisconsin teaching license for grades 7-12 mathematics, Physics, and broad field science, but have also enjoyed teaching Chemistry. My passion is teaching pre-algebra and Algebra I, as these form the basic foundation of all other advanced math and science courses. I am very familiar with the different learning styles and have adapted my teaching strategies to best suit the needs of each individual student. I believe that students learn best by first watching, then a gradual learning curve from mentor to student, leading to subject mastery. I ask open-ended questions to enhance and deepen the learning of my students. I am patient, love being around children and young adults, and am a good listener. I love opportunities to build and maintain long-lasting relationships with all my students.
