###### US Grade 4 - 7

###### Beginner - Intermediate Level

Arithmetic is the study of how order molds with learning in the use of mathematics. They will learn addition/multiplication to see order as part of reality. They will know that there are right answers and that if they work hard enough and write hard enough, they will get the right answer. They will learn how to go from the concrete to the abstract. They will learn how to think fast and accurate.

##### Teacher expertise and credentials

###### Bachelor's Degree in Education from Pensacola Christian College - no ending time or cessation of degree

I have a degree elementary education with 25+ years classroom teaching experience, plus 14+ years home-school experience. I also have experience teaching 7th grade Basic Math, 8th grade Pre-Algebra, 9th grade Algebra 1, 10th grade Geometry, and 11th grade Algebra 2. I have also tutored several students on basic math and algebra.
I have taught in the classroom and homeschooled for over 30 years. I graduated from a 4-year liberal arts program with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Minor in History. I am passionate about English, reading, and math in my teaching. I want to open the worlds of English, reading, and math to children and adults. When you read a book, you may go anywhere in the world. My dedication to teaching math stems from wanting students to have the ability to succeed in their endeavors. Unfortunately, I believe that we have lost our direction in this area. Children can no longer count money or multiply. We need to get back to the basics.
I have taught both in the classroom and in homeschool, teaching from K2 through 12th grade, plus 3 1/2 years at a small Bible college over their education program. I am very dedicated to the skill of reading. I believe that it is the one area that everyone needs to be successful at because if you can read, you can complete math, science, history, spelling, etc. If you cannot read, it affects every aspect of your life. I am a firm believer in the 4 R's of education: reading, writing, arithmetic, and research. The complete classroom elements must be taught to be well-rounded academically, mentally, spiritually, and physically.
My teaching experience is as follows: Advanced K5; 1st through 6th-grade phonics, reading, and math program; 5th grade all subjects; 7th through 8th-grade math, Algebra I and II, Consumer Math, Geometry, Speech, Typing, Shorthand, and Spanish I; 7th - 12th grade English and Speech; Remedial College English, College English 101 & 102, History of Civilization 101 and 102, American History 101 and 102, and American Government 101 and 102. In addition, I taught for 3 1/2 years at the college level for a small college as the director of their education department.
I have already taught a remedial Algebra I class, and I am presently teaching several sections of Remedial Math 102: Mastering the Fundamental Concepts. My desire and goal are to help our young people learn how to master these basic concepts that have slipped by them genuinely.
I am a grandmother of three beautiful little girls and a handsome little grandson, the mother of 2 handsome sons, the mother-in-love to 2 beautiful daughters-in-love, and the wife of a most attractive and wonderful husband.
