Hello! I have been teaching 6th, 7th and 8th grade math and Algebra for 11 years. I have had great success with all kinds of students from those that need extra help to those who need to be enriched. In my district I am considered one of the best in my field for my students success on state testing. I love to connect with my students on a personal level and connect what they are learningnin math to the worl around them. I am a married father of 3 who loves children.
Overall, I really enjoy the long lasting relationships I build with my students. I am still in contact with many former students through social media and still help them with math or other life experiences today. I love watching a student grow to understand math when they otherwise may not have.

I am open to whatever needs the family may have. Typically we will either meet at the public library or I am also available to tutor from the home. I feel that a one hour session is long enough and I usually don't like to tutor one child more than 2-3 times a week so that they are not overworked.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Seconday Math Education from Purdue University. I also have attended many hours of professional development at the school I teach at involving best instructional practices.
For a one hour session I typically charge $30 an hour but am willing to work with a family so that the experience is a positive one for all involved.
I started teaching in January 2007 right after I graduated college. I have been at the same school my entire teaching tenure. I wanted to be a teacher because I always loved school, loved children and also wanted to have the opportunity to enjoy time with my familu during the holidays and summer months.
I have worked with all types of students. Mostly I have worked with low-income students of all races who are in general math classes or even special needs. However, at my school I am also responsible for teaching Algebra to the high-achieving students in the building.
