TEACHING EXPERIENCE

5-8th grade mathematics teacher for 6 years at the Journeys School in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I have been tutoring math for the past 8 years. I have experience tutoring grades 4-12.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is for kids to enjoy math class and to enjoy a challenge. I lecture about 25% of any class and the rest of class I leave for investigation or project time. I hand draw most of my worksheets and assignments so that I am able to annotate worksheets more easily.
