ABOUT THE GRAPHS IN THE STORE BANNER:
The three graphs are based on hundreds of my own observations of students in Grades 1-8 who were using printed Multi-Match card games. Most students were working at or below grade level.
EXPERIENCE: In addition to having taught and tutored mathematics for 5+ years, I have 30+ years of curriculum development experience with K-12 publishers! Because I needed a flexible schedule, I'm now writing and tutoring independently.
TEACHING STYLE: I use matching games to help students match numbers, models, and expressions. I ask students a lot of questions to help THEM figure out what to do.
HONORS/AWARDS: While working as an editor for Prentice Hall, I received the "Way-to-Go" Award for work on development of a mathematics skills intervention kit. I was Project Editor for Scott Foresman's Wide World of Mathematics, a video and software program for grades 7-12. This product received a Technology & Learning Magazine Software Award of Excellence.
EDUCATION HISTORY: Master's Degree in Mathematics Education from The Ohio State University. Licensed in Ohio to teach Elementary 1-8 and Mathematics 7-12. Additional coursework on developing performance assessments.
