I am a sixth grade math/science/social studies teacher in Connecticut. I studied Chemical Engineering for three years before earning a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry. I then went on to earn my Master's Degree and CT State Certification in Elementary Education.
I have also been a private math/science/SAT tutor for 5 years. I was also a martial arts instructor for 8 years.
I have been involved in education in the public schools since 2009. During this time I have learned to integrate many strategies into my teaching across all subject levels. Over the past few years I have been able to focus on teaching my favorite subjects, math, science and social studies. My classroom involves a mix of hands on learning, small group work, independent studies, and teacher directed learning. Each of these methods serves an important purpose and I would like to share these ideas with a new group of students through Udemy.
In the private tutoring field, I have had a very successful career with more than 50 different students over the past 5 years. Through one-on-one and small group sessions I have been able to help all of these students achieve their individual academic goals, whether these goals have been to raise their grade in Algebra, Chemistry, Calculus, or Physics or to achieve the necessary score on the math portion of the SAT to get into the schools they would like to apply to. I plan on utilizing these tutoring skills in my Udemy courses to ensure that all students are able to reach and understand the material and are successful with each course.
