I have been a high school math teacher for the past 6 years, while tutoring on and off since 2006. During this time, I have taught Algebra 1 to Statistics to pre-calculus/trigonometry, including ACT math prep. I have had great success with all of my students including students with learning disabilities.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to really get to understand how a student's brain processes information, and then find ways to break down math content into smaller parts to make it more accessible for everyone.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
We will talk about what you struggled with in math, what you like in math and in general, and then do some practice problems so that I can get to know your style.
