When working with students, I try to target the source of misunderstanding and then lead them through their own series of logic to understand the process. My job is to clarify any ambiguity the student might encounter. To do this, I often create simpler problems for the students which illustrate a point and then generalize the point to the problem at hand. For example, a student might ask, "Does 4/52 plus 4/52 equal 8/104?" And I would respond by placing two measuring cups on the table and asking, "Does 1/3 cup plus 1/3 cup equal 2/6 cups?" This technique takes longer than simply dictating, "A [more]

Teaching Elementary Math is more complicated because of the common core requirements but the value with using this process is that is very standardized between all the schools and it does work. For many parents that have not had the exposure, the common core can be overwhelming. When we couple this with a child that is struggling, it becomes very stressful. My goal is to alleviate the stress of both the child and the parent. Once the stress starts to fade away, the benefits of the common core kick in and kids become much stronger at Math. [more]

The way basic math is being taught these days simply doesn't work. Each student learns in unique ways, and the standards established by most math curricula have significant shortfalls. The basic quantitative and number reasoning skills are absolutely critical. While it is true that calculators can perform the operations required of students, fostering quantitative reasoning and numerical instinct is a crucial goal for maximizing long term opportunities. Hello, Thanks for taking a look at my profile! Please review my subject qualifications, student feedback, and detailed description below. Ple [more]
