...I have also recently started working as an AVID tutor with Mesa Public Schools where I mainly focus on helping students in their pre-algebra and algebra courses. I want to help others learn math because I feel it is a subject that can discourage many from achieving their academic or career goals. I believe that with an honest effort, math can be well understood by the common student.

...I believe that each child has an area of great gifting and it takes that teacher or parent who is driven to find it. One of my job duties has always been to be a personal cheer leader for my students. Most of the challenges students need to overcome, is the negative self-image they develop from a system that tells them "they can't".

After graduating college, I was hired as a support teacher where I planned and conducted phonics and reading lessons to kinder and first grade students. I also taught after-school intervention for students who were struggling in math and reading. The following year, I taught a program called Read 180 that focuses on 3-5th grade students who are reading far below grade level.

...I currently teach prealgebra at a middle school in Chandler. By integrating the math class with the students' current science class, both classes are reinforced, and students see that although we separate classes to focus our teaching, all the classes comprise one whole. My emphasis is bringing abstract concepts, especially the use of letters for numbers, down to everyday experiences.
