My passion is helping students improve their math skills and overcome their math fears. I teach both college-level and developmental-level math students at a large community college. Over the years, I have taught many classes of arithmetic, elementary algebra, geometry, college algebra, and mathematics classes for Elementary Education majors.
I love working with students to improve their basic mathematical knowledge. About half of the classes I teach are arithmetic classes for adult learners.
My students come from a wide range of backgrounds and getting to know each one of them is fascinating. Some of my students have experienced a life-changing event such as a stroke or brain injury and they are courageous enough to work hard and re-learn concepts they had previously mastered. Others have struggled with math (and school) their entire life. It is very rewarding to have a student tell me they understand fractions, or decimals, or integers for the first time in their lives!
