I am an experienced math and science teacher with a passion for education. I have primarily taught math and science on the middle school level but I have also instructed adults working towards their GED. I excel at teaching hard-to-understand concepts and thoroughly enjoy working with individuals on their level.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that everyone can learn. It is just a matter of finding the right starting point and the right personal connection.

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

Evaluate what information the student already knows in order to determine what they need to learn.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will begin to give them less and less support until the student feels confident answering the problems on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I like to provide students with competitive challenges to help them stay motivated.

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

Break it down! I like to help the student learn the basics in order to further their knowledge of more difficult concepts.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I think it is important to learn to read and analyze small sections in order to build stamina for longer passage reading.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

It is important for students to be able to relate the material they are learning to their personal life, as well as to things that they find interesting.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I ask students to complete problems on their own. Students can also create their own problems and find mistakes in already completed problems.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

I like to give the students progressively more difficult questions in order to assess understanding and ability.
