...However, like all puzzles they need to have the proper pieces (theorems, corollaries, etc.) to put it together. My method is to make sure the student has a firm grounding in basic mathematics and is able to enjoy learning prealgebra, not just approach it in a mechanical way. Applications to real life often will motivate students to learn the basics and advance their mathematical skills.

...Education I have a master?s degree in materials science from UC Berkeley and a bachelor?s degree in chemical engineering from UC Irvine where I graduated magna cum laude. I am also a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Teaching methods I like to start with a student assessment to understand what the student is struggling with so that I may tailor my lesson plans accordingly.

...Before earning my secondary teaching credential, I worked as a math tutor for 3rd through 5th graders in a public elementary school. Due to this experience, I am able to explain math concepts at a level that is developmentally appropriate. I enjoy engaging students this age with fun puzzles and activities that at the same time deepen their conceptual understanding.

I've been teaching or tutoring for over twenty years in some form or another. For me the reward from tutoring is when I see that a student has caught onto an idea, when the light bulb goes on. In my career I've not only studied physics, mathematics and statistics, but applied them as well as time management and study skills.
