...I can help the student with positive self-talk. As a Software Developer for many decades, it is part of the profession to explain technical detailed information in ways that non-technical people can understand, and intuitively feel what you are talking about. Many people have told me I have this gift of "making things understandable".

...Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized.

...How a learner best operates is the key to efficiency of learning new things, and as a teacher it's important that I cater to all learning styles. I love the challenge of teaching in a way that a learner can best relate to the subject at hand, which makes their learning process more relevant and interesting. I make math fun!

...I also struggled in algebra 2 so I have some simple tricks that I use that I can share with the students. Prealgebra is the basics or foundation of algebra and I this course was the main course I taught during my student teaching. I taught 2 out of the four classes I completely took over were pre algebra.
