Individualized service. Evaluation testing and report of weaknesses to help focus instruction. Use of varied algorithms to help ensure student understanding. Student interview given to establish connections to use student interests and strengths to increase student learning.
I enjoy my work because I know the process in which students learn. I have experienced success in student learning math and testing well enough to be admitted to good college preparatory high schools. I am PA state department of Education certified in K-6, and middle grades 7-9.

Initially, I will interview the student to introduce myself, get to know her/him and determine what kind of formative assessment.is needed.
I earned over 30 credits in undergrad and post undergrad course work in business and advanced math. I also passed a state certification in middle years math and general science. Lastly, I have taught middle years math for over 10 years.
My standard instruction pricing is $30/40mins or $60/80 mins. This includes one or two 40 min consecutive sessions. Initial evaluation/interview priced at same rate as online instruction.
. I started teaching after working as a substitute teacher for about three years. I started taking advanced math courses while subbing. After graduating with a Masters in Ed, I qualified to take certification tests to teach middle years math and general science and passed.
I worked primarily with public and charter middle school students.
I am fond of the years in which many of my students moved clearly from one state mandated test catagory into the next higher level of proficiency.
I would tell a student to look for a teacher who has experience teaching your class subject or is able to do the due diligence to prepare for the topics you need to understand if confident they can help.
Students should think about why they are having difficulty with the subject and be able to communicate that. When did you first notice you needed help? How helpful are their primary instructors? When are you available? What are your short term needs and goals? What are your long term goals?
