Enjoy teaching,and love young energetic and challenging students

I have eight years classroom experience working with students of differing strengths and weaknesses. Students with varying learning styles and abilities can be taught using a variety of creative techniques. Using this approach to teaching almost certainly will allow you to find ways of stimulating students to grasp the material being taught. I have learned in the process of teaching that each person can be taught the subject area if the material can be tailored to fit the different learning... [more]


Algebra 1

I taught Algebra1, Biology, and Geometry for seven years to high school freshmen and sophomores. In college I studied math to the calculus level in economics and finance.


Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is an extension of algebra1 and a precursor course to precalculus. It encompasses a more detailed exposition of core content of algebra 1.


Biology

I studied biology and chemistry at an advanced level. I studied math up to the calculus level in college in and am an Economics and Finance major.


Geometry

Geometry is made up of theorems and postulates, inductive and deductive reasoning. This can seem daunting to the student who is not familiar to the subject. As students progress they realize that the theorems and postulates help them solve the problems in the particular area of geometry the rule applies. My expertise is to make student get so comfortable with the subject they actually find geometry enjoyable.


Prealgebra

Experience teaching Algebra, biology, General Science, Environmental Science for seven years in high school. Tutor prealgebra and am familiar with the math middle school curriculum.


SAT Math

SAT math draws in the student's knowledge and analytical skills in math. I teach student to develop analytical skills to master SAT math, thereby increasing their grade in the subject area.


PSAT


ACT Reading

I have students who failed reading in class improve their reading score tremendously. I teach students how to carefully read each passage and annotate to get a detailed picture of the reading before answering questions.


ACT Math

ACT math can be challenging, it draws on the student's knowledge of algebra 1 & 2 as well as geometry. Accuracy and speed are the skills required to be successful. Students have to practice these problems with a teacher who is experienced in these subject area. I have successfully taught algebra and geometry and am qualified to prepare students for this exam.


ACT Science

The ACT science tests students' abilities to analyze and understand scientific data put forth in experiments with collection of data and results. I am able to teach students how to acquire the skill necessary to interpret these data and answer questions correctly in an efficient and concise manner


Elementary Science


Regents

I have successfully tutored students to pass the Common Core algebra1 and geometry regents exam. The students have all received greater than passing score on these challenging exams
