Class Experience

Students will be able to independently add fractions with unlike denominators using the butterfly method.   
Teaching Philosophy
As an educator, I have an open mind, positive attitude, and high expectations for ALL of my students. I believe that students learn best by making mistakes and having experiences. In my classroom all students are treated with respect. Together, as an educator and a student, we will achieve great things!

Teaching Experience 
I have a Bachelor of Art's in Elementary Education specializing in integrated sciences from Michigan State University. In 2018, I graduated from Oakland University with my Master's in Reading and Language Arts. I have taught for a total of 5 years in a traditional Brick and Mortar classroom. I also have experience with online teaching. I have been teaching with VIPKid for over a year. 

Adding fractions with unlike denominators is a mathematical concept that I have taught in a traditional classroom as well as online. I am able to identify misconceptions and guide students to the correct algorithm. I am able to adjust my teaching to meet the needs of the learners. 
For homework students have the option of completing additional adding fractions with unlike denominator problems.  
Students should come prepared with a notebook for scratch paper and a pencil. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed during class on their ability to add fractions using the butterfly method of algorithm. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
