...I feel I make more of a difference to the students I teach during office hours. For some reason, students don't connect with their teacher as well in a classroom setting as they do one-on-one or in smaller groups. I get to enjoy those lightbulb moments in this way as well.

...I have had a number of years of experience teaching and tutoring. Aside from private tutoring, I have been a tutor for elementary and middle school children in an after school program which was funded by the No Child Left Behind Act. I taught both Language Arts and Math skills.

...This class is a wonderful foundation to the building blocks of mathematics. Pre-Calculus is a wonderful bridge between Algebraic concepts and Calculus applications. Much of this course requires the use of a calculator with trigonometric functions.

...I have tutored students in Geometry and over the summer to prepare for Geometry. I like to make Geometry as visual and tactile as possible for my students so I use methods like origami, studying patterns, cutting and pasting, and even clay to make the subject come alive. I have 3 years of experience teaching Prealgebra in the classroom.

...I assess students' mastery of concepts using both formative (such as the use of dry-erase boards and exit tickets) and summative assessments regularly so that I can gauge how much and what they've learned within a given time frame. I have been married to my lovely wife for almost 25 years. We have three children in different stages of life, and each is quite different from the others.
