TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 8 years in a public high school in the content areas of Mathematics and Physics. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AP Calculus, as well as Physics, AP Physics, and Modern Physics.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy doing a blend of guided discovery as well as lecture. I like to incorporate hands on learning in both math and physics, but also emphasize problem solving skills. I like having open discussions with students about the world around them and how math and science can help us understand it.
