Math Teacher with 20+ years experience offering K-8 Math tutoring in Metro Detroit

Methodology

My teaching method is a combination of modeling and connecting new skills to previous skills to make sure students have no misconceptions. I check often for understanding when students begin practicing the skill on their own before moving on to new skills.

Background

I have been a math teacher for over 20 years. I have taught middle school math and was an elementary Math Specialist. As a math teacher I strive to find activities and connections that engage my students. I teach the concept behind algorithms and look at connections between different strands of mathematics. It helps my students when I connect different areas of mathematics as I introduce new topics and review topics.
