I am a hands on tutor. I believe all kids can become a confident math student given the right tools. Kids needs activities that allow them to see and apply math topics on grade level. I have been a math teacher in Wylie Texas for 14 years and received Teacher of the Year for Wylie ISD in2014. My experience is 5th and 6th grade regular and advanced/GT academics. I have also taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade math summer school grade recovery. I have been a private tutor for 10 years.
I love to see kids learn and enjoy math!
