TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Almost 30 years of experience as a math teacher, teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Geometry, among other courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Knowledge is easy when there is understanding. I strive to teach math in the way that students will most easily understand it. I guide my students to think the right thoughts and to produce great math notebooks that will help them understand and remember the terms, rules, and steps for the concepts they are learning.
