I have a passion to show how fun and how easy math can be. You don't have to be a genius to be good at math. I can show you shortcuts and memory aids to make math processes easier.
I also care deeply about the English language, and strive to teach people how to speak and write it correctly. I help people speak and write with excellence. This will make you much more credible when you begin your search for employment.
I have been teaching since 1980 in a variety of scenarios, from Sunday School to public schools, from Pre-kindergarten through 1st year of college, in every academic subject. I have taught in Montana, California, Florida, Okinawa, Guatemala, and Mexico, in both English and Spanish. Spanish-speaking students are welcome!

I begin by assessing the student´s abilities and weaknesses in the subject matter. I like to work with the student on his/her homework, and we work sample problems to learn new concepts. I will help the student to understand in areas where he/she may be having trouble as demonstrated by homework and quizzes/tests. I do not usually assign work, unless the student requests additional practice.
I studied math in all of high school and college, including Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus. I am an avid reader, and a skilled proofreader, both in English and Spanish, able to correct grammar, usage and punctuation. I am a skilled teacher of Spanish/English, having been a missionary and teacher in Guatemala and Mexico for a total of over 10 years. I have experience in translating both verbally and textually, informally and technically, between both languages.
I began helping fellow students in school from elementary school. Students from upper classes would seek my help with reading and other subjects from the time I was in 1st grade, as I came to school already reading above 4th grade level. I continued to do this through high school, and even in college, I helped friends with difficult subjects. It was only a small jump from there to substitute teaching in Orange County Florida public schools. In recent years several friends have asked me to tutor their children. I have also tutored Nursing Program students with their math.
All ages, from elementary school to senior adults.
I made a trip to Montana in the summer of 2017 to visit family, and was able to do some photography as well. It was wonderful to renew relationships with some cousins I had not seen for many years.
I would first recommend finding a tutor who really enjoys learning, and who enjoys helping others in any ways he/she can. This type of person makes a great teacher, although he/she might never have been trained to teach.
"How important is it to me to master this?"
"Am I willing to do what's necessary to learn?"
