Description

Class Experience

At the end of this Flex Class, your student will be able to say, "I can evaluate expressions with 1 variable and 2 variables and evaluate expressions with decimals and fractions."  "I can combine like terms with negative numbers and with parenthesis."  "I can determine equivalent expressions." "I can tell you what happens when I divide by 0."  "I can determine the proper order of operations when simplifying an expression."
I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.  

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores. 

It can be done!  I used a focused approach. We honed in on trouble areas, really understood the underlying math concept, and drilled for mastery.
The class is designed for the student to complete all of their work in class.  Additional problems are provided for students who need additional practice for mastery.
Paper, pencil, and a brain ready for thinking fun!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students progress will be tracked informally by reviewing Nearpod interactions during the lesson. Instructor can provide grades only if requested. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Necessary prerequisite knowledge:
Students should have some familiarity with algebraic variables.
Students will see the lessons on Nearpod which will not require logging in to view. Students should have  the ability to use their mouse and/or keyboard to annotate.
