Former Teacher & Skilled Tutor With 10 Years Of Experience In Math, Reading & Writing Instruction.
I earned my master's degree in education and a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in 2008 and began teaching at a community college immediately afterwards. I worked in an adult basic education program and had the opportunity to work with a diverse student population (both youth and adults) to help them gain confidence and improve their basic math, reading, writing and language skills. Math in particular can be a stumbling block for a lot of students and over the years, I've developed methods to make abstract concepts relatable and understandable. My expertise in math ranges from basic arithmetic to early algebra 1 (exponents, simplifying expressions, linear equations, and inequalities). I'm also a skilled English teacher/tutor (basic grammar, leveled reading comprehension, sentence structure, paragraph writing, and essays). My goal is to not only help students learn, but to help them build confidence and move toward self-sufficiency with their work.
