TEACHING EXPERIENCE

11 years as a math educator I have taught the following courses: Algebra 1 Geometry Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry Discrete Mathematics IB Mathematics SL and HL AP Calculus AB and BC

MY TEACHING STYLE

I want my students to think critically and creatively when it comes to mathematics. I like to incorporate activities that ask students to make conjectures and defend their reasoning. I try to incorporate the same mindset when teaching by direct instruction. In general, I am laid back, approachable, and "quirky".
