## Profile Details

### Experience Summary

With my graduate-level academic background in pure mathematics, I am well-prepared to guide students through the intricacies of mathematics. Moreover, my specialized training in mathematics education equips me with the pedagogical tools and strategies to effectively engage and support students in their mathematical journey. I have taught mathematics at the community college, university undergraduate, and high school levels (formerly certified to teach in the state of Georgia and province of Ontario). Having spent 25 years as a software professional (mostly in the financial services industry), I bring a blend of communication skills, real-world problem-solving expertise and teaching/mentoring experience. I understand the practical applications of mathematical concepts and can effectively communicate their relevance to students.

### Credentials

### Teaching Style

Highly interactive, at the student's pace, using visualization and other problem solving techniques wherever possible.

### Other Comments

At A1 Math Tutoring, we take a problem-solving approach. Math is not just about memorizing formulas and equations; it's about developing critical thinking skills and a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. Students will be engaged in active problem-solving, encouraged to explore different strategies and to think creatively to tackle math challenges. I believe in fostering a growth mindset, where mistakes are viewed as valuable learning opportunities. Students are guided through a step-by-step problem-solving process, emphasizing logical reasoning, analytical thinking, and systematic approaches. Students are encouraged to break down complex problems into manageable parts, ask thoughtful questions, and apply relevant mathematical principles to find effective solutions.
