I have been high school and part time community college instructor for 10 years and have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Physics, AP Physics B and PLTW Engineering courses.
My class is based on direct instruction and once a week testing.
I have multiple awards of the highest in the district Math and Physics scores. With CSTs my Physics classes tested in between 85-95% proficient and advanced (never below basic). With CSTs my math students tested 65% proficient and advanced (no below basic) in Algebra 2, and 45-55% proficient and advanced in Algebra 1. My AP Physics B passing score is usually by 10% higher than average national passing score.
I have MS in Electronic Engineering and Single Subject Credential for all levels of math and Physics.
I graduated with MS in Engineering when I was 22 years old, love painting, tennis and outside activities. My life used to be all about my job which I love very much. I am a single mom and now my life is also divided between my son who is 2014 Thanksgiving baby and teaching. Oh... I am 42 years old and an immigrant. I arrived to the U.S.A. in 2000 and my mother land is Ukraine.
