I recently taught 4 Advanced Algebra 2 classes who tested extremely well on their final for the semester. I can explain, show, help with practice, and instill confidence in the skills a student needs to be successful. I understand the mathematics which precedes Algebra 2 so well that I can connect the new learning to the previous learning. I am confident with my vocabulary, my number sense, and my critical thinking which allows me to see where students struggle, excel, and every place in between.
I am a very successful Geometry educator. I understand the process, have strategies for helping students find clarity and understanding of the Geometry curriculum. Geometry is a mathematics which is visual and is a lot of fun to explore.
I have taught Prealgebra for 18 years in the classroom. I can make solving and graphing equations easy to understand, have the skills to discover what is missing for a student, and the patience to teach and reteach as much as is needed.
