Description

Class Experience

At the end of this semester portion of Algebra 1, students will be able to say, " I am GREAT at solving one and two step equations and inequalities." and, "I know how a coordinate plain works and how linear equations work."
After my career in industry as a chemical engineer and management consultant, I got my certification to teach math and business in the public schools for  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 eight 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.  

Rest assured, students finish my classes and turn to their parents and say, "I finally get it!"  Here are some reviews from classes here on Outschool to show what I mean...

From CT - 
Love this teacher! My kids are requesting more of her classes. Thank you teacher Kitty! 
Energetic and patient teacher. I accidentally signed up my younger son with his older brother and she made the class interesting for both of them and they asked to join another class of teacher Kitty.  Thank you !

From William-
Wonderful class. The class speed was just right, and our daughter was able to follow along relatively well. She benefited greatly from this opportunity to reinforce her understanding the solving quadratic equations. Thanks!!!

From Dillon-
This the second linear equation class my son took from Teacher Kitty.  My son felt he learned a lot on this subject and took very useful notes, and gained a lot more confidence than when he just started learning it.  

From Mary -
I am really pleased that our first lesson at Outschool was such a fantastic one. Kitty is really good and my son loved that he could understand her clearly (initially worried as he is not American or in America ) I observed that she really took her time to explain terminologies and she gave the class more time to really grasp the lesson. My shy son eventually came out of his shell and contributed to the class. We are looking forward to more classes with her.
With each session I offer links to exercises that students can do. Either it will be in a worksheet, or a publicly available resource like Khan Academy, commoncoresheets.com, or mathworksheets4kids.com.  
Paper, pencil and a great attitude and willingness to encourage fellow learners and participate. Calculators are not needed until the second part of this course.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Letter grades are available upon request.  These will be based on participation, test results, and the teacher's observations in class.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Pre-algebra skills are needed for this class.  Please consider arranging for your learner to take some supplemental classes if you are concerned that he/she will have trouble with the concepts.  Let's give your learner a great experience in this class by having he/she well prepared and able to learn confidently!
Teacher creates her own interactive graphical slides including games to build proficiency.  Teacher may provide additional videos of her creation to supplement what students are struggling with in class.  Khan Academy and Openstax will be used to assist with homework.
