I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics as well as a Master's Degree in Education with a concentration in STEM.  I have created and collected a wide variety of resources to help students engage in a fun and comfortable way while building a strong foundation in mathematics.   With 20 years of experience teaching in the classroom coupled with 5+ years of experience teaching online to students with varying abilities and needs, I feel extremely qualified to deliver this instruction to learners via Outschool.  
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Frequency: available upon request
Details: Each lesson will have an assessment that students can complete for feedback. I typically respond within 24-hours.
It would be nice for students to have a three-ring binder in order to keep track of assignments and notes each week.  I will provide a PDF via Outschool messages that will explain to students what needs to be for the week (objective, discussion question, notes and assessment).  A calculator and graph paper would be nice items to have, however, when possible, I will suggest websites that may have the tools that a learner may need (example: online calculators).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
