As a certified middle school generalist, my greatest strength is preparing students for high school academics - particularly mathematics. Besides growing up gifted in math, I excelled in high school algebra & geometry, and my college training included linear algebra, business analysis, physics, and statistics - all of which require command of algebra. In my teaching career, I studied the middle school & high school math curriculum very closely, and helped prepare many 6th & 7th graders for high school algebra. [more]

Instruction is designed to reinforce mathematical skills taught in the previous courses with additional advanced computation including an emphasis on Algebraic concepts. Students study fractions, decimals, percents, positive and negative integers and rational numbers. Student works toward becoming more proficient in using ratios, proportions and solving algebraic equations. Students will develop and expand problem solving skills (creatively and analytically) in order to solve word problems. Students continue to practice using math skills to solve word problems and to think creatively and analy [more]

I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work.

I devised and taught for five years a summer school pre-algebra program for incoming freshmen students to St. Michael's Catholic Academy (SMCA). All students applying to SMCA must take a placement exam to determine if they are ready to take Algebra 1 that fall. If they performed below standards, then they were required to take the four-week course. It was an homework intensive course covering all of the topics in a typical pre-algebra course. Grades were kept but the course was Pass-Fail. TUTORING PHILOSOPHY Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Ca [more]

I have worked with students taking pre-Algebra as a teacher and as a tutor. I have an understanding of the concepts and their importance to further math studies, and have used many techniques to help students master the concepts. I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013. In my last school, I taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, and tutored students for TAKS and STAAR tests. I also taught middle school integrated science at a previous school, and have helped students with organization and study skills. I am certified grades 6-12 for science. Si [more]

I have worked with middle school students to develop their pre-algebra skills as a small group intervention teacher. While under the direction of the lead teacher, I would assist these students and help solidify their understanding in mathematics. I'm a music educator with years of experience teaching music in NJ schools. I've helped students improve their instrumental playing as well as reinforced skills in music theory, history, composition, and song writing.
