I believe that all students given the right support can excel in mathematics. Students need a teacher who can explain complex math skills in a way that is easy and relates to them in order to help them become successful. Being a great communicator is my strongest attribute because I am able to understand what my students are saying and need so that I can break the problem down into a way they understand and answer their questions. MATH IS FUN IF YOU MAKE IT SIMPLE AND FUN!!!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that all students given the right support can excel in mathematics. Students need a teacher who can explain complex math skills in a way that is easy and relates to them in order to help them become successful.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would introduce myself, ask the student what areas they are most struggling with and have them answer a few problems to see what issues they might be having.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By teaching them how to think through questions and apply what they see from example problems.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By providing them with meaningful activities. Also by helping the student to become successful, because success is one of the biggest motivators in anything.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Try another way of teaching the skill after figuring out what they are having difficulty with.
