I am a passionate Special Education Teacher with 3 years of experience. Math is a subject that I've always enjoyed and I am blessed to be able to teach it everyday. My philosophy when it comes to teaching is simple: I put the cookies on a shelf where the kids can reach them.

About Maireny M.

I am a public school Special Education Teacher working in the Soundview section of the Bronx. I'm in my third year of teaching and I love what I do. Math has a special place in my heart and it genuinely makes me feel excited. I know Math, particularly Algebra I, is an area of difficulty for most; It is one of the top contributors of low high school graduation rates.

Last fall, I facilitated a peer tutoring program at my school and all of the students who participated improved their scores on the NYS Common Core Algebra I Regents Exam. It brings me great joy to see my students succeed by way of making progress. My approach to math is to break it down into basic steps. I put the cookies on a shelf where my students can reach them. I'm confident that with a few sessions your performance in math will improve.

I co-teach Algebra I & II as well as Geometry; All of which are Regents classes centered around topics covered on the NYS Regents for the past four years. I prepare my students for the Algebra I Regents by exposing them to as many Regents vocabulary and questions as possible. Part of the reason students struggle on the test is because they don't know what the question is asking making it impossible for them to know to proceed. Of course, knowing the content is also important but if you don't know where you're going, you won't know how to get there anyway. In my sessions, I will show you how make sense of math. I am happy to work with students of all levels. My goal is to help you know more today than you did yesterday. With my lessons, and your efforts and continued practice, you will achieve success.
