13 Years Experience teaching AP Calculus, AP Statistics and Honors Algebra 2. Have taught in VA & NY. The AVERAGE score for al of my students on the AP Calculus AB and AP Statistics is about a 4 out of 5. My students in NYC earned a 100% pass rate on their NY Regents exam.
I want students to understand why they are doing what they are doing and do not believe in simply teaching tricks. I want students to be prepared for college level math. My students attend top colleges when they graduate including The University of Virginia, Duke and Princeton. I focus on vertical curriculum alignment. Not only to I want students to be prepared for their end of year test, but I also want students to be over-prepared for their next math class and their college math class.
National Board Certified Math Teacher (NBCT) and AP Calculus Lead for Current School District
B.S. in Systems Engineering from Top 10 Engineering School and M.S. in Teaching with a concentration in Math Education
I have three children and they have made me a better teacher. I am more patient and work to make connections, break things into "smaller chunks" when necessary and help students understand how everything we do fits into their overall math experience.
