#### Education

B.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Connecticut. Graduate Program in Secondary School Mathematics Teacher Certification at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU). Additional education graduate courses at SCSU and University of New Haven (UNH): teaching math to low achievers and accelerated students, exceptional children group processes, curriculum design, and math teaching strategies.#### Experience

I have taught both in a one on one context in a non-public school as well as in traditionally populated public school classrooms. I have taught school classes in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and SAT Math Preparation. I have also tutored in these same subjects as well as in College Calculus 2 and College Algebra.I try to help a student by connecting or comparing with what a student already understands or is familiar with. I will break complex processes into smaller steps. I will use visuals and patterns to aid learning.

I will communicate with the student to determine specific obstacles to understanding that need to be removed; and I will try to figure out ways to help a student remember procedures, steps or relationships.

My goal, for better concept retention and application, is for students to be able to understand and use concepts, rather than for just memorization. I am willing to adjust my teaching goals and emphasis to what is wanted or needed by the paying client.

My approach to students is to be non-judgmental in regards to their difficulties. However, I also want students to gain self confidence in the abilities and understanding they do have.

Courses I have taken since my Teacher Certification program include strategies for teaching mathematics to students who are low achievers as well as accelerated.

#### Hobbies

I am also interested in music. My prime musical instruments are violin and guitar.#### Preferred Subjects

SAT Mathematics, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, ACT Math, PSAT Mathematics, Pre-Algebra
