I am an experienced educator. I taught for 9 years in the DeKalb County School System as a high school math teacher. I have experience teaching Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Algebra III. In addition, I coached Football and Track. I have tutored math students on all levels, from elementary school to college. Being a former student athlete, I am also able to relate well to those who are attempting to balance academics and sports or any additional extra-curricular activities. My level of content knowledge is strong, having obtained a B.S. in Mathematics, as well as a Masters of Arts in Secondary Education.
My ability to motivate and differentiate, coupled with patience, enables me to be an extremely effective tutor. I aim to help students excel in Math, apply content to real life, and assist students in making discoveries about concepts using their logic and reasoning skills. Learning Math can be a real challenge. However, my philosophy is that when students learn in a way that is relatable and meaningful, they are better able to excel in Math and in life.
