I am a former elementary school teacher with extensive experience in planning math lessons and teaching them in the classroom. I also facilitated after school "Math Bootcamp" tutoring sessions to help prepare struggling students for the statewide assessment tests. I am a member of the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics. I am currently working toward my master’s degree in teaching math and science to students K – 8th grade. A number of the master’s level courses I have completed have been devoted to teaching techniques and strategies for elementary and middle school math students. I have also completed master’s level coursework in teaching problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
