...I have been tutoring students for the verbal sections of the SAT and ACT for more than 20 years. I also teach university students how to write well and how to speed-read with more comprehension. I have a Ph.D. in European Intellectual History, and I have taught in front of a classroom for many years.

...In 2013, I worked as a substitute teacher for the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School district. As a substitute teacher, I gained valuable experience working with children of all ages and backgrounds, from honor-roll students to at-risk youth to those who just didn't understand their math homework. I will be returning to FSUSD as a substitute teacher this fall.

...I am able to teach and help students understand topics from algebra to calculus. Often times, algebra is rushed through without the proper framework. With the right structure, it can definitely be learned.

...Instead of presenting the student with a parade of ideas, I help the student to see each new topic as simply a new expression of ideas they already know. At the end, the student sees all of algebra as essentially an expression of these first few ideas. I find this approach makes learning much much easier, much much faster, much easier to retain.

...I will check for understanding as I explain these smaller parts. I will then ask students to explain back the lesson to me. If they are able to do so, then I will have the student do a similar problem with different numbers.
