Educational Philosophy

I have many years of experience teaching mathematics in Junior High School, Middle School and Intermediate School. I present concepts using many methods so your child can be successful. I pride myself on being able to see things through students’ eyes. For any student to have success in math, I believe it is necessary to master multiplication facts. In the beginning, your child and I will practice and drill until these facts are mastered. This is the foundation upon which success and achievement in mathematics is built. In order for your child to go forward in their education and life, I will prepare him/her to think for themselves and be confident in their thinking so as to build their success!
