Is math difficult? Not after you've had an experienced and educated teacher with a master's degree!
Educated? I have a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, concentrating in Math K-12 Certified? EC-6 Generalist, Math 4-8 Experienced? Over 8 years of teaching/tutoring experience, with elementary and middle school students. Leadership positions such as Campus Science Facilitator, being a mentor teacher and writing the exemplar lessons for the 6th grade math curriculum I believe the fact that I was both a "not-so-great" student and a student who was in a National Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi, is why I can both relate to students as well as be a successful educator.  Growing up, I did face some struggles in school, yes, academically but my lack of motivation seemed to be what really hindered my education.  This is why I am so thankful for the teachers that I had in my life that really motivated me to better myself and believed in me enough to allow me to believe in myself.  This is exactly why I have the teaching philosophy that I do.  Once I had that motivation back, I became a better student with better study skills and my grades caught up.  This positive change became even more apparent during grad school, when I graduated with all A's.  My personal experiences with teachers making a positive impact on a student's lives and knowledge, and experience, of how to be a better student, is why I am such a successful educator and have such a positive success rate with my students.
