...I focus on intimate discussions of conceptual learning as well as problem solving and test taking behaviors. These are the very things that a lecture or class cannot shove down a student's throat, yet are vital to long term success. I have gone through training at one of the top corporate test prep companies, and know their standards well, but this is not the right approach to education.

...I also tutor a wide range of academic subjects, breaking down concepts into bite-sized pieces and honoring the pace at which the student needs to work. Many students say I helped them finally grasp subjects they never understood in school, from coordinate geometry to pronoun use. I truly enjoy working with teenagers, so they tend to enjoy working with me, too.

...Core concepts in Geometry are deductive reasoning, concepts related to parallel lines, proving congruent & similar triangles, theorems on right triangles & circles, and calculating perimeters, areas, and volumes of geometric figures. Geometry provides abundant opportunities for students to reason mathematically. It teaches students thinking, communicating, and problem solving skills.

...I have taught American History as part of the 4th and 5th grade curriculum in five of the 13 years as a teacher in the public schools. How do I teach history? I start by getting students to share any knowledge or experiences they may have that directly relate to the key points of the day's lesson.

I have been teaching 4th - 8th grade math in a private school for the past ten years. I have been instrumental in developing our math curriculum, which is aligned to the Common Core State Standards. My students receive strong foundational math skills in addition to opportunities to develop critical thinking and problem solving.
