Algebra and Statistics teacher with 15 years of experience in the classroom and with one-on-one tutoring

Methodology

My teaching philosophy is that motivation appears when a student has a dream to pursue and believes that the subject material he or she is learning is relevant to that pursuit.

Methodologically, I am a moderate Constructivist (allowing students to find the correct method on their own with appropriate guidance) who is willing to use direct instruction when appropriate. I strongly believe that respect is a two-way street, and that enthusiasm is contagious.

Background

Hello! I am a high school Algebra and Statistics teacher in Pennsylvania with 15 years' experience and degrees in Industrial Engineering and Mathematics Education. I love working with students one-on-one! I have taught grade levels 9-12 at all levels of instruction, ranging from honors classes to individual
instruction of students with various learning disabilities.

My Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System (PVAAS) score is 3.0 (highest possible) for three years running, 2017-2019, which is indicative of significant evidence that my students exceed state standards for academic growth.

I have also been rated as a Distinguished Educator (best possible) by the district principal every year for over a decade, 2008-2019. (Copies of my state and local performance evaluations are available upon
request.)
