TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a retired professional math tutor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada with 18 years of experience tutoring, teaching and advising high school and university students. ***************************************************************************** Most of my files are not creative classroom lesson plans. These are detailed, annotated "how-to" pages, usually with blank worksheets and then the same worksheet fully solved. In my solutions, I use consistent colour and phrases so that patterns and repeated steps are easily visible. ***************************************************************************** These pages are meant to be used by: 1. TEACHERS looking for a thorough, complete and accurate way to describe mathematical concepts and skills to their students. 2. PARENTS wanting to understand the math their children are doing in school so they can provide additional support and guidance at home. 3. HOMESCHOOLING PARENTS wanting to supplement their math curriculum or as stand-alone learning material. 4. SELF-DIRECTED LEARNERS of any age looking to teach themselves (or review) middle and high school math concepts with well-thought-out explanations and some self-test material. 5. TUTORS who need high quality, tried-and-true tested explanations of mathematical concepts for their students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Although I did teach at a high school, most of my 18 years of experience is as a private tutor, owner of a tutoring centre and trainer of tutors. So, my teaching style reflects connecting to learners on a very personal, conversational level. ***************************************************************************** Working with hundreds of students (who are taught by dozens of different teachers) has allowed me to incorporate the best of what I've seen into my work. Unit circles or special triangles? Solve equations by "moving terms to the other side" or "doing the same thing to both sides"? There aren't too many methods I haven't seen, so I always take into account the variety of techniques that can lead to the same results. Therefore, my methods may be different from yours. They simply reflect the models, analogies and explanations that I've found will resonate most strongly with the greatest percentage of students.
