Algebra 2

I have a secondary mathematics credential, a BA in math, and two master's degrees in Educational Technology and Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. I have taught high school and community college math for 30 years.

Calculus

I am a credentialed secondary math teacher. I have taught higher level math classes for over 25 years.

Geometry

I have taught high school math from pre-algebra and calculus, including geometry, for thirty years with high rate of student success. Understanding Geometry is a prerequisite for future and more advanced math classes from algebra 2 to pre-calculus and calculus.

Prealgebra

I am a retired credentialed, secondary math teacher. I have taught math for many years. I believe that math should be taught in two areas, concepts and skills necessary to understand the concepts. These two should be taught together in order for the student to make connection to the topics and understand them easily with common sense.

Precalculus

I am a secondary credentialed math teacher with over 25 years of experience. My students have a high rate of success.

Trigonometry

I have taught Trigonometry, as part of Precalculus for many years with high rate of success of my students.

SAT Math

SAT math consists of problem solving (word problems) that require application of pre-calculus math. Students need to learn techniques to rewrite and understand the question. Some students need help in that regard and some need a review of the skills. In both cases, my experience with more than 25 years of teaching the subjects will help.
