TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 12 years. I have taught everything from Algebra 1 through Advanced Topics for seniors. I also have experience teaching engineering courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is to push students but allow them to make choices. Students need to learn responsibility and I try to help them learn how to make good choices. As far as the math, I will use what ever examples from the real world I can to get students to understand the concepts that are taught.
