My main teaching method for mathematics involves discovery and gaming. I believe that, regardless of grade level, students tend to learn more easily when they can have fun and are taught based on what they already know. Despite the progressive ideas used in my teaching, the structure of my lessons tends to be more traditional. It usually feels more comfortable for students to have a basic idea of how the lessons will be presented, especially online.
Right now I work as a disabilities program manager at a school for kids with special needs. I have been a private tutor since 2009 and have taught students of various grade levels and from various cultures. I have a degree in elementary education; and I have recently began pursuing a degree in educational leadership.
