...I will then ask students to explain back the lesson to me. If they are able to do so, then I will have the student do a similar problem with different numbers. I am interested in students proving they have learned the material as opposed to just completing a problem.

...When I teach math concepts such as Calculus, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to history and culture so I'll discuss the evolution of unique math concepts. Calculus has a natural connection to science, especially Physics, so I make those connections whenever possible.

...In Trigonometry the fundamentals are essential so I maintain a strong focus on definitions and understanding early concepts throughout the course. I am well versed in the math found on the SAT, having tutored a number of students in this area. I know both the concepts and the methods that the SAT uses that make concepts a student knows appear more difficult.
