Children learn best through hands-on experiences. When the child works a problem through a problem whether alone or in a small group, they mentally process the information to their own understanding. They also learn best through problem solving and projects with real-world application. These experiences teach them the concept of the problem as well as skills like working with others and time management.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Tennessee (Martin) in Education with a concentration in middle school mathematics. I also hold an active teaching certificate from the State of Tennessee. I am also highly qualified to teach middle grades by successfully completing and passing the appropriate Praxis tests.
I have several years of tutoring experience while attending college for my undergraduate work. After graduating, I began substituting then accepted a full-time, interim teaching position at a private school where I taught Algebra 1 and Honors Geometry.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as explore new hobbies.
