Levels Taught:
Middle School, High School
I keep it simple and fun! We will learn how to solve triangles using basic trig. I really enjoy tutoring logic, inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, and two column proofs. I connect with the student to create a logical and efficient two column proof based on deductive reasoning using theorems, postulates, and definitions. We have fun with proofs on popular topics such as parallel lines and congruent triangles.

Teaching since:

I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the problems. Every problem has two parts: the first is recognizing what kind of problem it is (e.g. quadratic equation) and the second is the mechanics of working it out (e.g. arithmetic skills, factoring, quadratic formula). I keep it simple and fun! I have given students confidence in their math skills which has transferred into overall confidence in themselves. We both roll up our sleeves and do the problems together.
